I am a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthesiologist and I urge the FDA to keep the labeling of Propofol as is. This drug is not a sedative, it is an anesthetic and should only be administered by an anesthesia provider trained in administrating anesthetic drugs and who is well versed in airway management. To do otherwise will lead to patient deaths. Do not change the labeling, for the good of the high quality of health care our country is known for, Please.
