Abstract: 
Colonoscopy is typically performed with sedation. Intravenous benzodiazepines with or without opioids have long been used to induce sedation for both colonoscopy and more complex endoscopic procedures. In recent years, we have observed a rapid transformation from the use of opioids and benzodiazepines to sedation with propofol in Western countries. However, most endoscopy centers in the Middle East still use traditional sedation with opioids and benzodiazepines for endoscopy.
