If it was me I would not let them use the drug
Versed ( Midazolam ) for the procedure.
In fact, many people who use Versed for " IV Sedation,Conscious Sedation" Twilight Sedation, during a procedure are awake for the entire procedure but remember nothing, often believing they were "out" the whole time.
Versed (Midazolam) is an amnestic. It is also commonly used for minor procedures like setting broken bones,colonoscopies,endoscopies, dental procedures like extractions,conscious sedation,twilight sleep, so that patients won't remember pain and discomfort.HOWEVER THAT DOES NOT MEAN THAT THOSE SENSATIONS WILL NOT BE EXPERIENCED!!!!Forgetting does not mean it did not happen!!
I FEEL IF PATIENTS WERE MADE AWARE THEY MAY FEEL PAIN OR DISCOMFORT THEY
WOULD OPT FOR ANOTHER DRUG!!!!!!!
Here is a note from a Dentist Who uses Versed
I've used Versed 1000+ times during oral surgery procedures and I've never had a complaint. It's a miracle drug because it is safe and it causes you to not remember an unpleasant experience. My answer to him is isn't it better to have not experienced the pain than to have forgot it. No wonder you have had no complaints they have no memory of the procedure..... Arnie
Why I feel this way about Versed
My wife had her broken bone(Femur)set in the emergency room just before surgery to repair it. They gave her versed and I waited outside of the room and could hear her screaming in pain,they did not appear to be concerned as they told me she would not remember anything and she did not. BUT THAT DOES NOT MEAN THAT IT DID NOT HAPPEN AND THAT SHE DID NOT SUFFER
Here is a note from someone that did use versed for a dental procedure
I know I was sedated, I don't remember anything.. but I know I was screaming, everyone could hear me.. My thing is how was I screaming if I'm knocked out.
I have known people who did remember a bad experience during a colonoscopy. They remember pain and yelling at the Dr. during the exam. When a doctor tells patient's they should have a colonoscopy they are told you won't remember anything and not you will not feel anything.
My sister in law had her baby years ago and we saw her after the delivery she complained about
how bad the pain was and had to be restrained.She had twilight sedation and a few hours later
she had no memory of any of this and thinks she slept thru the whole thing.
My father had surgery a few years ago and remembered fighting with the anesthesiologist as he was pushing a tube down his throat,after the operation the Dr. said he should not have remembered that.
Amnesia does no take place for all patients.
