The primary purpose of this study is to determine if patient satisfaction with propofol is better than with non-propofol anesthesia for outpatient colonoscopies.
The aim of this study is to compare the accuracy of the changes in CVI in response to a standardized noxious stimulus during various targeted pseudo-steady-state concentrations of remifent...
The purpose of this study is to compare the incidence and intensity of possible pain on injection as well as patient satisfaction caused by long chain triglyceride propofol versus medium/l...
This is a pilot study to compare the hemodynamic changes that occur during induction with a novel drug combination known as ketofol (propofol and ketamine admixture with that of propofol a...
Propofol in combination with remifentanil or midazolam can result in synergistic or additive effect. The patients who are scheduled to undergo general anesthesia are enrolled in this stud...
With a growing demand for endoscopic services, the role of anesthesiologists in endoscopy units must be reassessed. The aim of this study was to compare patient outcomes in non-anesthesiologist-admini...
Propofol is a sedative agent commonly used for sedation in gastrointestinal endoscopy. Its pharmacologic properties render propofol an almost ideal drug to achieve and maintain the targeted level of s...
Admixtures of propofol-ketamine, propofol-ketamine-fentanyl, and propofol-ketamine-remifentanil were subjected to various clinically relevant conditions to study their chemical stability. A novel high...
Owing to its unpredictability, unexpected patient movement is one of the most important problems during surgery while under monitored anesthesia care with sedation. The purpose of this study was to co...
Water-soluble prodrugs of propofol often carry an excess of propofol at the effective dose and have a slower onset of action. Sustained release of the original drug can result in propofol accumulation...
Distensibility measure of a chamber such as the lungs (LUNG COMPLIANCE) or bladder. Compliance is expressed as a change in volume per unit change in pressure.
Voluntary cooperation of the patient in following a prescribed regimen.
An intravenous anesthetic agent which has the advantage of a very rapid onset after infusion or bolus injection plus a very short recovery period of a couple of minutes. (From Smith and Reynard, Textbook of Pharmacology, 1992, 1st ed, p206). Propofol has been used as ANTICONVULSANTS and ANTIEMETICS.
Rare and often fatal drug complication which affects patients undergoing long-term treatment with high doses of PROPOFOL. It is characterized by METABOLIC ACIDOSIS; HYPERLIPIDEMIA; RHABDOMYOLYSIS; cardiovascular CIRCULATORY COLLAPSE; CARDIAC FAILURE; and KIDNEY FAILURE.
Extent to which the patient follows prescribed treatment such as keeping APPOINTMENTS AND SCHEDULES and MEDICATION ADHERENCE for desired therapeutic outcome. It implies active responsibility shared by patient and health care providers.
