Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
Propofol MCT/LCT
Drug: Propofol
  • intravenous (total intravenous anaesthesia)
  • induction and maintenance
Other Names:
  • Propofol Lipuro 1%
  • Diprivan 1%
Active Comparator: 2
Propofol LCT
Drug: Propofol
  • intravenous (total intravenous anaesthesia)
  • induction and maintenance
Other Names:
  • Propofol Lipuro 1%
  • Diprivan 1%

Detailed Description:
Propofol (chemical substance 2, 6-Diisopropylphenol) is a short-acting intravenous general anaesthetic which is used for induction and maintenance of a general anaesthesia, for long-term sedation of ventilated intensive care patients or for short-term sedation in diagnostic and surgical procedures. As an active substance propofol produces good and readily controlled anaesthesia with smooth and problem-free recovery both in adult patients and in children over 1 month of age. One potential advantage of this formulation is that the MCT/LCT-emulsion reduces pain on injection, a frequently reported adverse reaction with LCT-emulsions of propofol.
