The use of intravenous sedation and analgesia in patients undergoing interventional diagnostic and therapeutic procedures is increasing. Sedation by non-anaesthetists is considered to be safe, provided that they have received adequate training and have the necessary equipment, facilities, and personnel. This article aims to increase awareness of the safe use of sedative drugs in radiology and provide a practical guideline for minimal and moderate sedation.
