Background Propofol and ketamine may be paired for anesthesia induction and for total intravenous anesthesia. The nature of any sedative interactions occurring between propofol and ketamine are unknown. The combination when used for anesthesia induction in female patients was studied. Methods Quantal dose‐response curves were determined in 180 female patients to whom the drugs were administered individually and in combination. Two minutes after administering the drugs, two endpoints were… 
Ketamine for co-induction of anaesthesia in oral surgery
Ketamine as an alternative to midazolam co-induction to propofol: a comparative study
TLDR
This study showed that hemodynamic variables were maintained within the physiological range with midazolam and ketamine co-induction, however, lesser degree of decrease in mean arterial pressure was seen with ketamine but the heart rate was higher.
Comparison of two drug combinations in total intravenous anesthesia: Propofol–ketamine and propofol–fentanyl
TLDR
Both propofol–ketamine and prop ofol–fentanyl combinations produce rapid, pleasant and safe anesthesia with only a few untoward side effects and only minor hemodynamic effects.
Drugs combination in total intravenous anesthesia Propofol-ketamine Vs. propofol-fentanyl
TLDR
Both propofol-ketamine and prop ofol-fentanyl combinations produce rapid, pleasant and safe anesthesia with only a few untoward side effects and only minor hemodynamic effects.
“Co-Induction with a Small Dose of Ketamine is a Better Option Compared to Midazolam in Reducing Induction Dose of Propofol”
TLDR
This study showed that hemodynamic variables were maintained within the physiological range with midazolam and ketamine co-induction, however, lesser degree of decrease in mean arterial pressure was seen with ketamine but the heart rate was higher.
Changes in Effective and Lethal Doses of Intravenous Anesthetics and Lidocaine When Used in Combination in Mice
TLDR
Probit and isobolographic analyses revealed supra-additive interactions between lidocaine and each of the other anesthetic agents regarding both the effective dose and the lethal dose and no significant difference was found between propofol and ketamine regarding the supraadditive effect.
Timing of Midazolam and Propofol Administration for Co-Induction of Anaesthesia
TLDR
It is indicated that midazolam may be given up to 10 minutes prior to propofol and still achieve a substantial dose reduction, and patients who received midAZolam had less recollection of events surrounding induction and recalled the induction experience as being more pleasant than those who did not receive midrazolam.
Comparative study between propofol and propofol-ketamine for induction of anesthesia in dogs
TLDR
The association of ketamine for induction of anesthesia in healthy dogs using propofol was able to reduce the dose of the induction agent necessary for tracheal intubation, which allowed for a safer procedure for the patients.
The Effect of Intravenous Ketamine on Recovery from Total Intravenous Anesthesia with Propofol
TLDR
No statistical differences were identified with respect to severity of injection pain, hemodynamic response, VAS or PARS among the groups, but the respective times lapsed to extubation, eye opening and hand grasp after the discontinuation of propofol were longer in group K2 than in the other groups.
Assessment of Efficacy of Two Drug Combinations in Patients Undergoing Total Intravenous Anesthesia: A Comparative Study
TLDR
Both the drug combinations used in the present study with equal efficacy were assessed and comparison of efficacy in patients undergoing total intravenous anesthesia were obtained.

[Optimal dosage strategies in total intravenous anesthesia using propofol and ketamine].
TLDR
Total intravenous anesthesia with propofol and ketamine with computer-assisted infusion pumps proved to be very satisfactory from a clinical point of view and can be used in risk patients and under disaster conditions when i.v. access is the only possible route of drug administration.
[The effect of propofol-ketamine anesthesia on hemodynamics and analgesia in comparison with propofol-fentanyl].
TLDR
General intravenous anesthesia with propofol and ketamine offered the advantages of better analgesia, a higher state of vigilance and the absence of respiratory depression during the postoperative phase compared with the combination of prop ofol and fentanyl.
Hypnotic and anaesthetic interactions between midazolam, propofol and alfentanil.
TLDR
Interactions between midazolam, propofol and alfentanil using two end-points of light sedation (hypnosis) and anaesthesia showed significant interactions for hypnosis and for anaesthesia, dose-related effects could not be demonstrated for midAZolam or alfENTanil when used alone.
Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics of Propofol Infusions during General Anesthesia
TLDR
This clinical study demonstrates the feasibility of performing pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic analyses when complex infusion and bolus regimens are used for administering iv anesthetics.
Hypnotic and anaesthetic action of thiopentone and midazolam alone and in combination.
TLDR
The observed synergistic anaesthesia interaction is used to explain the potentially dangerous combination of benzodiazepines with other potent CNS depressants such as barbiturates and alcohol.
Sympathetic responses to induction of anesthesia in humans with propofol or etomidate.
TLDR
It is suggested that propofol-induced hypotension is mediated by an inhibition of the sympathetic nervous system and impairment of baroreflex regulatory mechanisms, and etomidate maintains hemodynamic stability through preservation of both sympathetic outflow and autonomic reflexes.
Midazolam acts synergistically with fentanyl for induction of anaesthesia.
TLDR
Midazolam was found to act in synergism with fentanyl for induction of anaesthesia and this degree of synergism may explain mutual potentiation between opioids and benzodiazepines reported previously.
Ketamine as analgesic for total intravenous anaesthesia with propofol
TLDR
The propofol/ketamine combination resulted in haemodynamically stable anaesthesia without the need for additional analgesics and is recommended for total intravenous anaesthesia for surgery when stable haemodynamics are required.
Triple Anesthetic Combination: Propofol‐Midazolam‐Alfentanil
TLDR
The results indicate that the propofol‐midazolam‐alfentanil interaction produces a profound hypnotic synergism which is not significantly different from that of the binary midazol AMF combination.
Ketamine kinetics in unmedicated and diazepam‐premedicated subjects
TLDR
Diazepam‐ketamine treatment resulted in higher plasma levels at most time points, but diazepam pretreatment did not alter plasma levels of metabolite KI and pseudometabolite KII nor the 24‐hr urinary excretion of ketamine, KI, and KII.
