Drug supply update: Propofol 1% X 50mL and 100mL Vials


In an effort to conserve existing large vial formats for use in intensive care due to supply concerns, NH pharmacy services had previously recommended that operating rooms move to exclusively using propofol 1% X 20 mL vials for anesthesia. Over the past several weeks, availability of the larger vials (50 mL and 100 mL) has improved signficantly and pharmacy has obtained a sufficient, ongoing supply.
