Contributor(s): Sheilah Robertson, Phil Fox, Polly Taylor

Introduction

Alternatives
  • Neuroleptanalgesia, eg for radiography.
  • Neuroleptanalgesia with local anesthesia, eg for minor/superficial surgical procedures.
  • It is often safer to give a carefully planned and monitored anesthetic than a heavy sedation for radiography and minor procedures.
