propofol dose for colonoscopy

  1. I'm not a CRNA and I wanted to get opinions on a dose of propofol that was given for a colonoscopy. Healthy 100kg male, no medical issues other than a history of OSA. Propofol was the only drug, given push, total dose was 490mg. I realize that propofol it titrated for effect, but doesn't 490mg seem high? Also, with the possibility of OSA would it have been better to add fentanyl so as to use less propofol? Just curious. Thanks
