A anesthetic used in veterinary medicine


Propofol is an anesthetic used in veterinary medicine.

brand name

Diprivan (Abraxis);Disoprivan;Disprofol;Rapinovet.

World Health Organization (WHO)

Propofol, a short acting injectable anaesthetic, was introduced in 1987. In April 1992, the Norwegian Medicines Control Board reported that prolonged use of propofol had been associated with two fatalities in children characterized by metabolic acidosis, liver enlargement, and cerebral oedema. The UK Committee on the Safety of Medicines has received 5 reports of deaths occurring in children who had received propofol while in intensive care.

General Description

Propofol is an injectable sedative–hypnotic used for the inductionand maintenance of anesthesia or sedation. Propofolis only slightly soluble in water with an octanol/water partitioncoefficient of 6,761:1; thus, it is formulated as an oil-inwateremulsion. The fat component of the emulsion consistsof soybean oil, glycerol, and egg lecithin. The pKa of thepropanol hydroxyl is 11 and the injectable emulsion has apH of 7 to 8.5. Formulations contain either disodium ethylenediaminetetraaceticacid (EDTA) (0.005%) or sodiummetabisulfite to retard the growth of microorganisms. EDTAis a metal chelator and patients on propofol containingEDTA for extended periods of time excrete more zinc andiron in their urine. The clinical consequence of this is notknown but the manufacturer recommends that a drug holidayor zinc supplementation be considered after 5 days of therapy.

Biological Activity

Intravenous general anesthetic and hypnotic with a mode of action which includes potentiation of GABA-mediated inhibitory synaptic transmission, direct activation of the GABA A receptor and inhibition of glutamate receptor mediated excitatory synaptic transmission. Also potentiates P2X 4 receptor-mediated currents in P2X 4 -HEK293 cells.

Clinical Use

Generic formulations of propofol may contain sodiummetabisulfite as the antimicrobial agent, and patients allergicto sulfites, especially asthmatic patients, should avoid thisformulation. Aseptic technique must be followed and unusedportions of the drug must be discarded according to the manufacturer’s instructions to prevent microbial contaminationand possible sepsis.

Safety Profile

Poison by intravenous and intraperitoneal routes. Experimental reproductive effects. Combustible when exposed to heat or flame; can react with oxidizing materials. To fight fire, use foam, CO2, dry chemical. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and fumes. See also PHENOL
