Propofol

Propofol (Diprovan, Diprivan, Dipravan, Deprovan)

Propofol (brand name Diprivan): an intravenous anesthetic used to produce rapid induction of anesthesia with a rapid emergence and with relatively low incidence of post-operative nausea and vomiting.
Propofol is classified as a sedative-hypnotic and has become the induction drug of choice for many procedures due to its rapid induction, clearance, and low incidence of nausea compared to other IV anesthetics. It is thought to act by interacting with gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and decreasing GABA’s rate of disassociation from GABA-activated chloride ion channels, thereby hyperpolarizing the cells and preventing further signaling.
