BACKGROUND Critically ill patients may require emergent intubations, and the use of some induction agents can lead to undesirable effects on hemodynamics. The use of "ketofol" (ketamine/propofol admixture) may allow for improved hemodynamic control. The primary aim of this study was to assess the hemodynamic effects of "ketofol" in a fixed-dose combination during induction of general anesthesia in a controlled environment. METHODS This was a randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled… CONTINUE READING
