|Guide For Use:||
It is assumed that general anesthesia involves a deep level of sedation. Thus answer this question only if 'regional anesthesia' or 'local or topical anesthesia' or 'sedation only' was the type of anesthesia used.
The level of sedation should be documented as such in the patient's medical record. If necessary, consult the anesthesiologist, anesthetist or person who performed the procedure.
If sedation was used in addition to 'regional anesthesia' or 'local or topical anesthesia', enter the level of sedation. If sedation was not used in conjunction with either of those anesthetics, select 'No sedation.'
If the answer to the previous question was 'Sedation only,' select the level of sedation. Do not select 'No sedation.'
Select 'No sedation' if regional, local, or topical anesthesia was used without sedation.
