Propofol acts quickly and sedates more predictably on a continuum, from moderate sedation to general anesthesia. Patients recover within a few minutes (much faster than with traditional sedation).
Patient complaints of nausea are significantly reduced.
Patients are comfortable throughout the entire procedure, often remarking that they just had their best sleep.
Patient’s comprehension and retention of post-operative instruction and physician dialogue are enhanced.
Many patients say they were not even aware of the procedure with propofol anesthesia.
Increase Revenue without Expense
Maintain current staffing levels while increasing your patient flow by 20% to 25% with faster patient recovery. Turnover is facilitated with the anesthesia team’s assistance.
Patients are much more likely to return and recommend your facility rather than search out propofol anesthesia that may be offered at a competing facility.
Physicians and their patients enjoy having a helping hand that is focused entirely on monitoring the patient’s airway, vital signs and anesthesia dosage, while nurses enjoy the assistance with patient turnover.
Predictable Recovery Intervals
Allows your practice to increase daily procedures without adding staff, or you can use the time-savings to consolidate current procedures into less hours.
Propofol acts quickly and metabolizes much faster than traditional “moderate sedation”, allowing for a more efficient patient flow
Propofol acts in seconds, not minutes. The time routinely wasted waiting for sedatives to take effect is saved. Patients are routinely able to ambulate more rapidly post-procedure.
Patients move less during the procedure
Allows the physician to focus completely on the procedure without interruptions due to the patient’s level of anesthesia.
Predictable recovery time
Allows for procedure scheduling blocks of time, thereby reducing the recovery bed bottleneck often associated with “moderate sedation”.
Patients are more alert during the post-procedural visit
Patients are also far more alert when speaking to the physician at the time of discharge.
Patients are more stable upon discharge
This limits concerns of the nursing (or legal) staff about falls.
