I recently had a transjugular biopsy. They gave me iv versed and fentanyl. I was conscious but very very very relaxed.  The doc said It was common to sleep during the procedure.  I was not asked to hold my breath. The Transjugular biopsy is safer than a percutaneous biopsy and a lot less painful.

I have not had jugular biopsy but I have had an angiogram as a diagnostic for liver cancer. They do not out you all the way out for that because the need to have you hold your breath. Trust me, under the sedation you will feel no pain. Maybe someone else here can answer your question directly.
