Local and Vocal
We are in a medical crisis. On top of if all there is a severe shortage of propofol. There are two companies that make it. One had a contamination problem with metal shavings and I am not sure about the other but it has been recalled. The side effect is that is is scarce. So instead of a little bump of propofol for the needle sticks and the infusion of the lidocaine, you get some versed, fentynl and a bit of "just a little poke", "stay still"! I dont know about you but I will wait until propofol is back before any colonoscopy!
