Brief Summary:

Use of sedation is often required in endoscopic procedures such as ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography). However, assessment of the level of sedation during these procedures is not investigated in detail.

The purpose of this study is to compare different sedation scales and bispectral index during sedation in endoscopic procedures in order to find the best suited assessment method for sedation under these conditions.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Sedation Device: Bispectral Index

Study Type : Observational
Actual Enrollment : 200 participants
Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Assessment of Sedation During Endoscopy, a Prospective Validation Study
Study Start Date : December 2013
Primary Completion Date : February 2016
Study Completion Date : February 2016

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Endoscopy patients
Patients undergoing endoscopy in the endoscopy unit in HUCH (Helsinki University Central Hospital).
Device: Bispectral Index
use of BiS-monitor in the assessment of the level of sedation in patients receiving sedation in endoscopy procedures when compared to clinical sedation scales, such as the Richmond agitation-sedation score.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. level of sedation [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
    Sedation measured by Bispectral Index (BiS) compared with RASS (Richmond Agitation-Sedation Score), MOAA/S (Modified Observer's Assessment of Alertness/Sedation) and Ramsay sedation score
