Recall after conscious sedation for gastrointestinal endoscopic procedures and its effect on patient satisfaction
by Moore, Jamie, M.S.N., California State University, Long Beach, 2012, 84; 1511370
Abstract (Summary)

This study was conducted to analyze the effect of recall on patient satisfaction with 2 medication regimens, midazolam-meperidine and midazolam-sublimaze. Another aim was to determine whether there was a difference in patient satisfaction between the 2 medication regimens. No published studies were found comparing the effects of recall on patient satisfaction with these 2 medication regimens, thereby creating a need for research.

A convenience sample of 15 participants who received midazolam-merperidine for colonoscopies and endoscopic gastroduodenoscopies (EGDs) were compared to 10 participants who received midazolam-sublimaze for colonoscopies and EGDs utilizing the Patient Satisfaction With Sedation Instrument (PSSI). All data were collected, respectively, over an 8-day period and a 4-week span. Results did not show any significant findings in terms of differences in patient satisfaction or recall between the 2 medication regimens; however, there was a significant correlation found between recall and patient satisfaction.
