On this episode of the Real Life Pharmacology podcast, I breakdown propofol pharmacology.
Propofol is a CNS depressant that is used for general anesthesia.
I discuss propofol infusion syndrome in this episode and what to look out for clinically.
Adding a benzodiazepine or opioid to propofol may have a synergistic effect and the propofol dose may need to be reduced.
I discuss important drug interactions on the podcast, be sure to check out my latest project which is a 200+ page book on managing drug interactions in primary care.
