Abstract

Daycare surgical procedure is those procedures which are performed in a hospital or an outpatient setting/surgeon’s office where the patient is discharged within 24 hours. 1% Propofol and 8% sevoflurane are commonly used induction agents for such procedures. It is of great importance to select a better induction agent with rapid onset and recovery with minimal side effects. Our study comprises of 60 cases undergoing various daycare surgical procedures that were admitted in National Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Hospital, Jaipur from January 2017-June 2018. This study was carried out to compare which out of propofol and sevoflurane is a better induction agent for day care procedures. In our study, we found that induction was faster and with fewer complications with propofol as compared to sevoflurane which was associated with a higher incidence of postoperative nausea and vomiting. We concluded that propofol is a better induction agent than sevoflurane for daycare surgical procedures.
