Before Intravenous Anesthesia Sedation

You must not eat or drink (not even water) for six (6) hours prior to the appointment. Regular medications should be taken at the usual times with a small sip of water.

Please wear loose fitting clothing with short sleeves and low-heeled shoes. Do not wear contact lenses, fingernail polish, acrylic nails, cosmetics, jewelry or piercings.

A responsible adult must accompany the patient to the office, remain in the office during the procedure, drive the patient home and assist the patient at home. Any minor presenting for surgery must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to sign the consent forms and participate in the consultation. A grandparent or step parent cannot legally give consent.

The patient should not drive a vehicle or operate any machinery for 24 hours following the anesthesia experience.
