Children are often difficult and non-cooperative patients. Thus conscious sedation, deep sedation and anaesthesia are widely adopted in gastroenterological diagnosis (panendoscopy, colonoscopy) and endoscopic procedures. They simplify and very often even make possible precise examination, and eliminate uncomfortable feelings and pain. During sedation as well during anaesthesia the clinical condition of the patient (blood pressure, heart rate, saturation, ECG, level of carbon dioxide in the expired air) is strictly controlled. Conscious sedation in children with ASA I-II can be performed by an instructed paediatrician or another specialist. Conscious sedation in children with ASA III-IV, deep sedation and anaesthesia need to be performed only by an anaesthesiologist.
