Propofol

Propofol, marketed as Diprivan, is a short-acting medication that results in diminished level of consciousness and absence of memory of the events. Its uses include the initiation and maintenance of general anesthesia, sedation for involuntarily ventilated adults, and procedural sedation. It is also used for status epilepticus if other medications have not worked. It is given by injection into a vein. Maximum effect takes about two minutes to occur and it typically lasts five to ten minutes.
