Colleagues -

Due to the ongoing shortage of a number of sedation meds we use in our ED - specifically ketamine - we are working on plans to conserve our supply and look for other options. One option we'd like to pursue is the addition of Propofol but have come across some logistical (and political) barriers in the past in our institution.  I'd love to ask if anyone who currently uses Propofol routinely in their Peds ED would be willing to 1) Just let me know, as I'm trying to build my case by showing what other similar institutions are doing and 2) share any pertinent documents about provider/staff education, competency, protocols, etc.

Thanks very much for your time, and happy sedating!
