In brief: It's possible

Diprivan (propofol) is a medication used for sedation or general anesthesia.
It is very safe when monitored by an anesthesiologist who is trained to manage the effects on blood pressure and breathing. If improperly used or not monitored safely, Propofol can make a person stop breathing completely, which can be fatal.
