MIDLAND CONSCIOUS SEDATION
The Midland Conscious Sedation Group was formed in 2017 to provide high quality intravenous conscious sedation techniques to patients treated outside the hospital setting. We work with CARE Fertility at their Birmingham clinic and with dental surgeries throughout the Midlands.
The Midland Conscious Sedation Group only uses Consultant anaesthetists. We use target-controlled propofol infusions to deliver conscious sedation. This provides excellent operating conditions and a high quality experience for patients.
In the dental setting, this means complex treatments that would normally require two visits can be completed in a single sitting. The rapid recovery associated with this technique results in increased efficiency and activity levels and dental surgeons can focus solely on the surgical procedure.
For our dental partners we provide a full service which includes the provision of infusion pumps, monitoring equipment and sedative, pain killer and resuscitation drugs.
