d. "The patient will not remember the procedure."
Midazolam, combined with an opioid analgesic, is used for conscious sedation for minor surgeries and endoscopic procedures. It does not cause anesthesia during this state, which is characterized by sedation, analgesia, amnesia, and lack of anxiety. The patient will not remember the events even though the person will be able to respond to commands during the procedure. The patient will appear unperturbed and passive and not anxious or restless. The patient is sedated, not unconscious. Midazolam can cause dangerous cardiorespiratory effects, including respiratory depression and respiratory and cardiac arrest
