We use propofol for cardioversion and ICD checks. With the short half-life, the pt is awake with 2-3 minutes after in med. Small amounts(50-100mg, depending on the pt size and weight) should have the pt comfortable and maintaining the own airway. With versed and fentanyl(both in large amounts, depending on the pt size and weight) have such a long half-life, that they have to be nomitored much longer. How would you go about sedating these pt.? Even if the pt. needs more sedation ie. long a-fib ablation, small amounts of propofol can be very helpful and maintaining the pt. own airway. Do have have any other seggestions to make for these situations?
