I am opposed to a lable change. Nurses have other responsibilities to preform at the same time the sedation is being given and are unable to give full attention to the patient and the airway. A patient recieving propofol can very easily and quickly slip from deep sedation to full general anesthesia and should be monitored by an anesthesia provider.
