A comparison of ketofol with propofol for sedoanalgesia for dilatation and evacuation: A randomized controlled trial


Dr. Radika D, Dr. Ranjith KB, Dr. KV Chidananda

Ketofol is widely used for medical evacuation and patient dilatation due to the sedative and analgesic properties of the individual components. Ketofol is made from ketamine and propofol. Ketofol is also used to treat severe depressions. For evacuation and ventilation patient treatment, a moderate spectrum of ketofol is required as this induces moderate sedation and anesthesia (Pandey, et al. 2017). In this study, 32 female patients underwent dilatation and evacuation treatment. These women were divided into two categories upon which a double-blind, randomized controlled trial was done on the groups, one with ketamine and the other group with propofol analgesia. A postoperative analysis on was done to determine the sedoanalgesia properties of ketamine and propofol.
