Propofol is well established as an i.v-induction drug in clinical anesthesia. However, pain on injection continues to be a problem, especially in paediatric patients. Various studies have been undertaken to reduce injection pain with different formulations of propofol. Propofol (MCT/LCT) is associated with less injection pain, hence this study is done to compare pain on injection on giving 0.5% dilution of propofol (MCT/LCT) versus 0.5% dilution of propofol (LCT) during induction of anaesthesia in children aged 6-12 years.

Abstract


Propofol is well established as an i.v-induction drug in clinical anesthesia. However, pain on injection continues to be a problem, especially in paediatric patients. Various studies have been undertaken to reduce injection pain with different formulations of propofol. Propofol (MCT/LCT) is associated with less injection pain, hence this study is done to compare pain on injection on giving 0.5% dilution of propofol (MCT/LCT) versus 0.5% dilution of propofol (LCT) during induction of anaesthesia in children aged 6-12 years.
