New Recommendations for Safe Use of Propofol by ASA

It is sad for public and healthcare providers to learn this from recent death of Michael Jackson. (I happened to watched his movie last weekend. ) The new recommendation to use EtCO2 detector bring me those days when the SpO2 was first introduced.  We will see how long it takes the whole healthcare system to adopt to this kind of safety device.  Do we need more RCT to show the effectiveness?

Remember the classic paper from BMJ 2003?
