nursing use of propofol in cath lab

  1. Does anyone have experience with using nurse-administered propofol in the cardiac cath lab for conscious sedation? Some of our patients just are too wiggly even with high doses of versed and fentanyl. Also, our docs want us to do the sedation during ICD implants and cardioversions and propofol seems like the ideal drug-- it's commonly used in endoscopic procedures....
    We're meeting some resistence from our anesthesiologists.
    Thanks,
