Core Tip Published information indicates that unsedated colonoscopies are acceptable in many countries; however, sedation is still a usual practice in many countries. Its burden includes escort requirement, time for recovery and activity restrictions. This study showed that unsedated colonoscopy is feasible in willing patients and it saves the endoscopy units up to one hour per patient. Contrary to some endoscopist’s fears, patients were still willing to return to the same physician for colonoscopy if a repeat procedure was needed.
