Over sedating in endoscopy procedures
A doctor can further discuss risks with the patient with regard to the particular need for gastroscopy.After the procedure, the patient will be observed and monitored by a qualified individual in the endoscopy room, or a recovery area, until a significant portion of the medication has worn off.This is usually not serious and warm compresses for a few days are usually helpful.While any of these complications may possibly occur, it is good to remember that each of them occurs quite infrequently.The self-illuminated endoscope was developed at Glasgow Royal Infirmary in Scotland (one of the first hospitals to have mains electricity) in 1894/5 by Dr John Macintyre as part of his specialization in investigation of the larynx.An Endoscopy is a simple procedure which allows a doctor to look inside human bodies using an instrument called an endoscope.
Previous rigid endoscopes suffered from low light transmittance and poor image quality.
This was the beginning of "key-hole surgery" as we know it today.
There were physical limits to the image quality of a fibroscope.
Such typically minor bleeding may simply stop on its own or be controlled by cauterisation. Perforation and bleeding are rare during gastroscopy.
Other minor risks include drug reactions and complications related to other diseases the patient may have.
