Sedation / Blood


I'm unsure if this is the correct area of the forum to post, so please move it if this isn't the correct location.

My question is for anyone who has experience with sedation via gas, such as Nitrous oxide.

I'm having to be put under sedation for tests due to losing consciousness and fitting when these tests have been attempted before.

Were you aware of the procedure once you were given the gas?
And if so, were you aware of exactly what was happening, feeling what was going on etc?

Thank you in advance x

    Sedation for tests normally refers to conscious sedation and would rarely be done using nitrous oxide. 
    It might be worth clarifying with the doctors and nurses precisely what they plan to do, and then seeking other people's experiences.
