Are you having a Procedure Under Sedation at Clinic 66?

procedure under sedation clinic66 factsheet

Any procedure with intravenous sedation anaesthetic means that you need to have an empty stomach, and so you should:

  • NOT eat any food during the 6 hours prior to your appointment
  • Drink only water between 6 and 2 hours before your appointment
  • Have nothing at all to eat or drink in the 2 hours leading up to your appointment (and this includes lollies and chewing gum). You should also not be smoking during this time.
  • Take any regular medications with a small sip of water on the day of your procedure

If you have any PRE-EXISTING medical condition such as diabetes or heart disease, then PLEASE let us know so that a nurse can provide you with specific instructions, and we can also book you in at an appropriate time.

If you have a sedation anaesthetic, you cannot drive yourself home and you should not travel alone on public transport. You will need to organise for someone to drive you or escort you home.

  • 2 or 3 sanitary pads (light flow only)
