Abstract

IN BRIEFPropofol is a well-established treatment alternative to benzodiazepines and/or other hypnotics or analgesics for the sedation of mechanically ventilated patients in the intensive care unit (ICU).The fast onset and short duration of action of propofol are particularly beneficial in those patients requiring only short-term sedation, for whom fast recovery is important.
