Abstract

Study Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate whether sedo-analgesia with alfentanyl/fentanyl, using a patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) pump, may have positive outcomes in terms of safety, postprocedural workload, and expectations of the colonoscopist, nurse, and patients in elective colonoscopy.
