Propovan (INN propofol) is white, opaque liquid for intravenous injection contain-ing 10 mg Propofol per ml. The vehicle contains glycerol, purified egg lecithin, sodium hydroxide, soybean oil and water. PROPOVAN (Propofol Inj.) is an intrave-nous anesthetic agent which is chemically unrelated to other anesthetics. Induc-tion of anesthesia with Propovan is rapid, and maintenance can be achieved by either continuous infusion or intermittent bolus injections, with either nitrous oxide or opioids used to provide analgesia.
