Questions & Answers
Side Effects & Adverse Reactions
Rapid bolus administration (induction or maintenance) or accidental overdosage of propofol may cause undesirable cardiorespiratory depression including hypotension and oxygen desaturation. Respiratory arrest (apnea) could occur. In cases of respiratory depression, stop drug administration, establish a patent airway, and initiate assisted or controlled ventilation with pure oxygen. Cardiovascular depression should be treated with plasma expanders, pressor agents, antiarrhythmic agents or other techniques as appropriate for the observed abnormality.
|When using propofol, dogs should be continuously monitored and facilities for the maintenance of a patent airway, artificial ventilation, and oxygen supplementation must be immediately available.|

PropoFlo™ 28 is a sterile, nonpyrogenic emulsion containing 10 mg/mL of propofol in a multidose vial for intravenous administration. Each mL contains 10 mg propofol. Propofol is chemically described as 2, 6-diisopropylphenol and has a molecular weight of 178.27. Propofol is very slightly soluble in water and is therefore formulated as a white, oil-in-water emulsion. In addition to the active component, propofol, the formulation also contains soybean oil (100 mg/mL), glycerol (22.5 mg/mL), benzyl alcohol (20 mg/mL), oleic acid (0.6 mg/mL), and egg lecithin (12 mg/mL), with sodium hydroxide to adjust the pH. The PropoFlo™ 28 emulsion is isotonic and has a pH of 6.0-8.5. PropoFlo™ 28 does not meet the propofol injectable emulsion USP specification for free fatty acids.
