GENERAL
This is an extremely dangerous proposal which will undoubtedly lead to and cause unnecessary deaths and severe complications.I am an Anesthesiologist, and I have seen first hand how dangerous this drug can be in untrained hands. There is simply no upside to this proposal, only poor outcomes can be expected. Gastroenterologists can safely use multiple other drugs in their practice. There is no reasonable or practical need for them to use Propofol.
