Non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures performed outside of the operating room has grown exponentially over the last several decades. Sedation, analgesia, or both may be needed for many of these interventional or diagnostic procedures. Medications that elicit pharmacologic effects – anxiolysis, amnesia, or analgesia – provide patient comfort during various procedures. Understanding the efficacy and safe administration of these agents is essential to the practitioner performing interventional procedures.

Procedural Sedation and Analgesia (PSA) is a technique of administering sedatives or dissociative agents with or without analgesics to induce a state that improves a patient’s tolerance for unpleasant procedures. The goal of PSA is to produce this depressed level of consciousness without compromising a patient’s ability to maintain their airway control.
