Based on the measured parameters it also concludes that propofol is preferably recommended as safe therapy than thiopentone
sodium for the surgical operations.
Effects of thiopentone

and Propofol," Acta Anaesthesiologica Sinica, vol.
Every medical student knows that cardiac disease is a relative contraindication to the use of thiopentone
. However, the enormous advantages of a smooth induction, and the knowledge that careful technique is--even in the cardiac patient--rarely followed by trouble, makes the use of thiopentone
At the end of the 8th week of the experiment, 5 ml retro-orbital blood samples were obtained under anesthesia using 40 mg/Kg sodium thiopentone
Comparison of propofol and thiopentone
for LMA insertion.
In another study14 after the administration of magnesium sulphate and thiopentone
no case of fasciculation was observed in patients who had succinylcholine-induced anaesthesia.
The first most effective, safe and reliable intravenous anesthetic agent was thiopentone
The groups were further randomized to thiopentone
or propofol as the anaesthetic induction agent.
Two agents that have not been linked to ototoxicity--oxytocin and thiopentone
sodium--were found to be ototoxic in our study (1 case each).
The induction of general anaesthesia for electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) often includes intravenous agents, such as propofol, methohexitone and thiopentone
