In brief: Intravenous sedative
Aka propofol.
Intravenous sedative given for many procedures requiring "light sleep", as for colonoscopy.May also be part of a general anesthetic used for deeper initial sleep but given in a higher dose, as for appendix removal.

In brief: Propofol
"diprivan" is the trade name for propofol, an anesthetic medication.
Many people are familiar with it as the drug that michael jackson took to help him sleep. It is a very useful medication for sedation and anesthesia, but it must only be used with supervision by an anesthesiologist who can support the patient's breathing and blood pressure while Propofol is given.
