> For those who use propfol for migraine in the ED-- Does NPO status matter? With nausea / vomiting associated with migraines- would using a sedation medication without adequate NPO time be a risk for aspiration??
--> I don't check NPO status when I use propofol for migraine treatment (again, for me it's adults). It is not a "sedation medication" any more than giving an oral tablet of 30mg codeine is - it's true that one CAN opt to use a sufficient quantity of either drug for the purpose of sedation, but the dose of propofol mentioned in this thread is NOT such a dose in the same way as 30mg of codeine for an adult is not sedation either. We TITRATE the dose of propofol and the headache goes WITHOUT the patient becoming sedated at all.
