After your scope test, you will spend about one hour in the Recovery Room where
your family may join you for the recovery process. As you emerge from the
effects of the sedative our highly-trained recovery staff will monitor your
vital signs and level of consciousness. Most patients will be given a light
snack. We will keep you warm and comfortable until you are ready for discharge
home. The doctor will meet with you and your family to discuss your test results
and any necessary follow up or treatment.
After the Exam
Our nurses will make sure that you:
- have sufficiently recovered from your sedation.
- have normal vital signs.
- receive and understand your discharge instructions.
- are discharged to travel home with your companion.
If any problems arise when you return home, please call us at 310-385-7755
and our nurses will immediately assist you.
