Dr. Yoho's Anesthesia Technique

As of early 2007, Dr. Yoho no longer uses ketamine on a routine basis, preferring just dilute propofol in a ratio of 40 cc of propofol to 250 cc of D5W, administered with a pediatric microdripper (60 drops per cc) and very rarely uses any other intravenous or intramuscular sedation or analgesic agents. If ketamine is to be used by an anesthesia provider who is not an anesthesiologist, the recommended dose is 25 mg or less every 10 minutes to a maximum dose of 50 mg total. He believes the national standard of care is to have at a minimum one other licensed individual in the room, i.e. a physician's assistant or registered nurse.
