Etomidate has become an important induction agent in high-risk patients because of its cardiovascular stability. Its unwanted side-effects such as pain brennen Thrombophlebitis injection and thrombophlebitis could be significantly reduced by a new medium chain triglyceride and soya bean emulsion formulation.
Propofol is solved in a mixture of long chain triglyceride brennen Thrombophlebitis soya bean emulsion. Following premedication with 2 mg Lormetazepam p. No opioid or benzdiazepine was given i.
After injection of the tested drug, the cannula was removed. Changes in blood pressure and heart rate were recorded as well as signs of discomfort during and after injection pain, burning, tension, cold. Venous sequelae were assessed for 5 days brennen Thrombophlebitis injection to register signs of thrombophlebitis.
Demographic data showed no difference between the two groups. After propofol more often a fall in blood pressure was seen. No difference was seen in PONV in either groups. Etomidate formulated in a medium chain lipid emulsion causes significant brennen Thrombophlebitis discomfort for the patients than propofol, which is solved in a long chain formulation. Myocloni, however, occur significantly more frequently after etomidate than brennen Thrombophlebitis propofol.
