In a single-blind study of 100 children aged 1 to 10 years, the minimum effective dose of lignocaine required to prevent injection pain due to propofol was 0.2 mg.kg-1 when veins on the dorsum of the hand were used. This is more than twice the adult value. We concluded that injection pain should not limit the use of propofol in children if an adequate amount of lignocaine is mixed immediately prior to injection.
