Patient-controlled sedation using propofol is described in 23 ASA 1 patients undergoing surgical extraction of third molars. Cardiovascular and respiratory stability was maintained and sedation was no deeper than full eyelid closure with prompt response to verbal command. Amnesia for the extractions was common (70%), but there was no significant amnesia for recovery room events. Intra-operative patient cooperation was good, postoperative patient satisfaction high and all patients stated they liked the self-administration and would use the same technique again. Propofol dose was correlated with both procedure length (r = 0.587; p = 0.003) and surgical difficulty (rs = 0.550; p = 0.010).
