Brief Summary:
Sedation for endoscopy is a service more than a necessity. Therefore it should be patient driven. Patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) undergoes life long endoscopic control. Therefore, satisfaction with the procedure experience is paramount for patients with IBD. Investigators wish to study the feasibility and the effect on patient experience of two drugs. Propofol administered by endoscopy nurses (NAPS) and conventional therapy with a combination of fentanyl and midazolam. Investigators hypothesize that patients sedated with propofol has a better procedure experience, that a well performed sedation equals a better experience and that NAPS is as feasible as fentanyl with midazolam sedation.

Drug: Propofol
Active Comparator: Fentanyl and Midazolam
0.025-0.05 mg of Fentanyl i.v. minimum 5 minutes before procedure as a single shot. Midazolam 1-2 mg i.v. for induction and 0.5-1 mg i.v. for maintenance after assessing needs and condition
Drug: Midazolam
Other Name: Midazolam "Hameln" ATC-code: N05CD08

Drug: Fentanyl
Other Name: Fentanyl "Hameln" ATC-code: N01AH01

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Satisfaction [ Time Frame: Participants will be interviewed when an Aldrete recovery score of 12 is achieved, an expected average of 2 hours after admission ]
    Satisfaction points in a post procedure questionnaire.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pre-disposing factors for satisfaction with procedure and sedation [ Time Frame: At admission to the hospital at time 0 ]
    pre-operative questionnaire

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Correlation between quality of sedation and satisfaction [ Time Frame: At the end of procedure, an expected average of 1 hour after admission ]
    Sedation efficacy is measured through use of a previously developed competency assessment tool. The quality of sedation score. The score is correlated with patient satisfaction

  2. Feasibilty of method [ Time Frame: participants will be followed for the duration of hospital stay, an expected average of 2 hours ]
    Timespand from entering the OR until discharge. Safety parameters during sedation. Number of adverse events, number of airway interventions, number of rescue treatments
