Patient Preparation – Sedation


Please fast from solid food for 6 hours and fast from fluids for 2 hours before your appointment.

You will be required to remain in the department for approximately 1 hour or until the sedation has worn off. We advise that you do not drive home after your appointment and do not operate dangerous machinery, sign legal papers, or drink alcohol for approximately 12 hours post examination. We recommend that you rest if necessary.
