Unsedated Colonoscopy

I searched this term and here is the very first article I found on this subject. There are lots of them... Sedation-Free Colonoscopy: Why Isn’t It the Standard? Gut Check on Gastroenterology There are actually several comments on this article which point DIRECTLY to the comfort level of the doctor. Should this be a reason to allow a brain scrambling drug, which increases the risk of perforation (not to mention the risk of developing devastating mental effects from sedation) and allows the doc to go really fast? Just how good IS an exam where the docs' most pressing problem is how to go really fast? This isn't health CARE is it?
