Sedationless Colonoscopy Option May Increase Colorectal Cancer Screening Compliance
Date:10/1/2013

l on the East Coast, these survey results confirm that there is a clear need for a single-use colonoscope that might enable screening to be done without sedation. In a 2009 clinical study, sedation was required in less than 5% of all cases performed with invendoscopy.[ii]  By providing a gentler colonoscopy option, we can address sedation-related barriers to compliance and ensure patients are appropriately screened for colorectal cancer."

The survey was conducted by Guidepoint Global, an independent research firm, among 100 internal medicine and primary care physicians treating patients in New York City or Providence who regularly refer patients for screening colonoscopy.
