Anaesthesia sedation guidelines for endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography

Sedation and analgesia are critical components of endoscopic operations. They help to improve patient tolerance and compliance by reducing pain, discomfort, and stress in patients undergoing unpleasant and lengthy procedures like Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopacreatography (ERCP). Furthermore, they lessen the risk of injury during ERCP due to inadvertent co-operation and make the endoscopist's job easier. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) patients require appropriate sedation or general anaesthesia. There is currently no agreement on who should deliver sedative to these patients. Several researches have looked into the safety and efficacy of non-anesthesiologist-administered sedation for ERCP; however, data on anaesthesiologist-administered sedation is few. This prospective single-center study looked into the safety and efficacy of anaesthesiologist-administered sedation, as well as the success rate of ERCP procedures.
