Propofol infusion syndrome is a rare complication that can occur in critically ill patients who are treated with a propofol infusion at rates above 4 mg/kg/hr (67 mcg/kg/min) for over 48 hours. Patients typically develop cardiovascular collapse associated with bradycardia, rhabdomyolysis, acute kidney injury, metabolic acidosis, and hyperkalemia. Early recognition is important ...Read more

My daughter was given propofol and sux at the same time and went into anaphalactic shock. How do I know which drug she reacted to for future surgeries?

Hypothetically (although dangerous) can an alcohol induced coma stop a seizure like a coma other sedative drugs such as phenobarbital or propofol?
Not reliably: If the seizure is for sure due to alcohol withdrawal, this may be possible -- but the amount needed may kill the person first. I'm sure you've heard of death from alcohol poisoning. There are many other possible causes for seizures, and alcohol-induced coma is not the way to treat those either. ...Read more
First: Propofol is a controlled substance that cannot even be prescribed. It must be obtained from an inpatient pharmacy directly to the department using it. Therefor the only way for someone to get access to it outside of a hospital is theft. For short in-patient use addiction is not possible. ...Read more
Small amounts: It would be hard to use Propofol for light sedation. It is the drug we reach for when requiring deep sedation which means that the patient is not responsive to verbal stimuli. There is a fine line between deep sedation and general anesthesia (airway is easily obstructed unless someone is there to maintain patency). One can look up dosages but everyone is different and require different amounts. ...Read more
Propofol has a short half life of a few minutes and neither of the techniques you mention are needed.

Minimal,: You will have an anesthesiologist and secured airway. The risks are with sedation with unqualified personnel ...Read more
Maybe: Propofol can get you to sleep during your procedure however it does wear off early as well. So make sure you ask what the sedation or anesthesia will do to you during the procedure. Many times they use other medications as well. I would discuss this with your doctor to have a better understanding of what you might go through. ...Read more
Depends: In the us, the term "anesthesiologist" means a fully-trained physician. A crna is a nurse anesthetist, not a doctor. Make sure a physician anesthesiologist is available for backup and supervision of a nurse anesthetist. Propofol is a good med for sedation for colonoscopy, but needs careful monitoring of breathing and blood pressure. The procedure won't take long, and you'll wake up quickly. ...Read more
Is it safe for me to have a colonoscopy using propofol if I have Brugada syndrome? Will it cause an episode of VT or VF?
Yes with precautions: Although propofol may result in malignant arrhythmias in some Brugada syndrome patients, it has been used uneventfully in numerous other Brugada syndrome patients. When appropriate measures are taken anesthesia with propofol can most often be performed safely in Brugada syndrome patients. For detailed information on anesthesia in Brugada syndrome see: http://bit. Ly/2bhf1Zz ...Read more
Can propofol infusion syndrome happen from back to back bolus injections? Or only from long term high dose continuous infusions?
Propofol...: Propofol is a strong anesthetic typically used during surgery. It is administered every 10 seconds until onset of anesthesia, total dosage 1 to 2 mg/kg IV. It inhibits the NMDA subtype of glutamate receptors, and has agonistic activity at the GABA A receptor. It can cause respiratory suppression, confusion, hypotension, myocardial infarction, seizures. It can cause these reactions acutely. ...Read more

If you: Have an anesthesiologist monitoring you if you do stop breathing it will not be a problem. Versed is an alternative that is much less likely to stop breathing but not as pleasant overall ...Read more
I am scheduled for a colonoscopy. Is a facility able to enforce anesthesia if I do not want to take it. They use propofol and I don't want it.
Informed consent: Nothing should be done before explaining pros and cons and obtaining your permission. Propofol is not the only choice, although it is probably best drug for it today. One can undergo colonoscopy without any anesthesia, the experience is likely to be quite unpleasant and stressful and conditions for the doctor performing it suboptimal, so I would invite you to address all your concerns beforehand. ...Read more
New gastro dr. Wants to do upper GI scope with Propofol. She says it's much better and no risks? Not the best with sedation. Nervous. Any risks?
Great medication: First have an anesthesiologist inject the drug due to the possibility of loosing the airway. Propofol will cause a rapid loss of conscious with a duration of under 10 min. It will me the only drug required in most of the cases patients awaken smoothly with little risk of prolonged sedation nausea and vomiting. There is no awareness and they can get discharged quickly ...Read more
