Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Classification of the sedation level [ Time Frame: time 0 ]
    Instantly after the loss of consciousness (loss of corneal-palpebral reflex) will be measured the sedation using the Ramsay Modified Scale.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time of latency [ Time Frame: 3-10 seconds ]
    Time between the injection and loss of the corneal-palpebral reflex

  • Pain at injection [ Time Frame: 3 - 10 seconds: during the injection ]
    The pain will be measured by CHEOPS Scale which evaluates the behavior of the child against pain.

  • Physician satisfaction [ Time Frame: 12 hours: end of procedure ]
    The satisfaction of the medical specialist will be assessed through a questionnaire that assesses conditions of sedation for the procedure.

  • Awakening time [ Time Frame: 10 hours: when the patient awakes ]
    Time between the last dose of propofol and the time when the patient awakes (cry, eyes opening and spontaneous movement).

  • Total dose [ Time Frame: 12 - hours End of procedure ]
    The total dose used will be measured in mg/kg/hour.

  • Incidence of Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 0 to 14 hours ]
    Adverse events will be compared in its incidence in the two formulations of propofol during the anesthetic induction and 12 hours after the procedures.

Enrollment: 0
Study Start Date: June 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2011
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: propofol nanoemulsion
3-4 mg/kg of propofol nanoemulsion will be administered by 1mL per 5 seconds, adjustment dose can be given.
Drug: propofol
3 - 4 mg/kg IV, adjustment dose if necessary
Active Comparator: propofol lipid emulsion
3-4 mg/kg will be administered by 1 ml per 5 seconds.
Drug: propofol
3 - 4 mg/kg IV, adjustment dose if necessary

Detailed Description:
Nanoemulsion of propofol has been developed without lipid solvent in the formulation to minimize the adverse events such as pain of injection, redness, heat, phlebitis.
