Please do not allow non-anesthesia experts to begin administering propofol by changing the drug's label. It is not safe or reasonable. A gastroenterologist wouldn't want to prescribe chemotherapy or life saving cardiac medications; why would he/she want to prescribe anesthesia? ALlow each provider to do what they do best. Keep anesthetics under the control of our anesthesiologists and anesthetists.
