Core Tip Gastrointestinal endoscopic (GIE) procedures are relatively safe. However, these procedures have been shown to cause various effects on cardiorespiratory systems. Sedation-related complications while providing any level of sedation can occur. Fortunately, these complications during GIE procedures are commonly transient and of a mild degree. In addition, significant unwanted complications can generally be prevented by careful pre-procedure assessment and preparation, appropriate monitoring and support. Periodical assessment of the level of sedation and continuous monitoring of cardiovascular and respiratory systems provides timely information. Standardized discharge criteria should be used to determine the patient’s readiness for discharge.
