Effect of a Modified Propofol Preparation on Injection Pain During Induction of Anesthesia in Children
The purpose of the study is to determine wether a modified propofol preparation shows any effect on the incidence of injection pain in children undergoing elective surgery under general anesthesia.
Study hypothesis: The use of a modified propofol preparation will reduce the incidence of injection pain in the study group.
