TCI Propofol for Sedation

PROTEDS


There exists continued controversy over the use of propofol in ED PSA, this is despite its widespread existence in clinical practice for at least a decade. These concerns are not limited to the ED setting and are primarily related to the pharmacological properties of the drug itself and its potential for harm. The bolus administration of propofol, aimed at a target of sedation, offers several advantages over more traditional agents, yet these advantages are also its limitations. The use of a target-controlled infusion may provide the seditionist with greater control over the pharmacokinetics of propofol and thus reduce the rate of adverse incident. This study aims to use a pragmatic design to test the safety and efficacy of propofol TCI against usual PSA care in the ED.
