Pain on injection: a double-blind comparison of propofol with lidocaine pretreatment versus propofol formulated with long- and medium-chain triglycerides



Pain on injection: a double-blind comparison of propofol with lidocaine pretreatment versus propofol formulated with long- and medium-chain triglycerides



Anesthesia and Analgesia 99(6): 1699-702



The incidence of pain on injection of propofol has been reported to be 70%. A new propofol formulation with a 10% emulsion of long-and medium-chain triglycerides (LCT/MCT) is associated with less pain on injection. Our goal was to compare the effect of propofol-LCT/ MCT on the incidence of pain versus propofol with lidocaine 40 mg TV pretreatment injected as a Bier's block.
