Position Statement: Nonanesthesiologist Administration of Propofol for GI Endoscopy

This document is designed to provide an evidence-based assessment of propofol-mediated sedation by properly trained gastroenterologists and other nonanesthesiologists.  It did mention the simulation training and airway workshops for properly training.  But I am not sure why they use Propofol in the title.  Does it mean there will be different statement to administrate other medications (benzodiazepine, opioid, etc) ?

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?
Parachute use to prevent death and major trauma related to gravitational challenge: systematic review of randomised controlled trials

Lots of things are take for granted in developed countries is not always available in developing countries. There are no system can be rely on for healthcare delivery, the impact of individual doctor is big.
