Objective: The sedation for endoscopies procedures is not frequently used in our country. This study goal is to describe the experience the Hospital Central de la Policia has in routine use of sedation for the endoscopies procedures. Methods: During a period of 15 months it was administrated routine sedation for all type of endoscopies procedures by a gastroenterologist assisted by a Chief Nurse trained with that purpose, using clinic monitoring, Oximetry -Pulse and automated arterial tension methods. The mainly used medicines were Propofol, Midazolam and Fentanyl. Results: From a total of 1414 endoscopies procedures, the 81.1% (1147) were made under light or moderate sedation. There was no evidence (presence) of any complications of clinic consequences, neither any mortality on this sample. The patients satisfaction was unanimous. The sedation made easier the procedures execution by the specialist (gastroenterologist). Conclusion: The routinely sedation for endoscopies procedures made by trained personnel with the appropriate monitoring, is a safe practice which makes easier the procedure itself and generates enormous satisfaction and acceptance by the patients.
