Moderate sedation, previously known as conscious sedation, is the medically controlled state of depressed consciousness that allows maintenance of protective reflexes. The patient retains the ability to maintain their airway while responding purposefully to verbal commands and/or tactile stimuli (Gross et al, 2002). There are four levels of sedation/analgesia that are clinically and medico-legally important because they have different monitoring requirements with an increasing potential for adverse effects (Table 3-1).
A total dose of < 5 mg is usually adequate for sedation in most patients; however, a higher dose may be necessary in longer procedures and in the individual patient. Midazolam is metabolized to 1-hydroxymethylmidazolam, which is rapidly conjugated in the liver and then excreted renally. Renal insufficiency does not require dose modification. Smaller doses should be used in older, debilitated, or chronically ill patients, and in patients with hepatic insufficiency. IV midazolam has been associated with respiratory depression, especially when combined with a narcotic.
On the other hand, inadequate sedation may cause potentially harmful autonomic responses such as hypertension and tachycardia. Blood pressure should be monitored at frequent intervals of 5 to 15 minutes, again dictated by level of sedation, patient condition, and institutional protocols. Designated Individual Level of Consciousness Monitoring of level of consciousness is somewhat difficult because it potentially can disrupt the procedure. It should be done during the noncritical periods of the procedure.
