Özet

Propofol and ketamine have become progressively popular in electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) anesthesia, although propofol shortened seizure duration and ketamine might cause cardiotoxicity, psychotic episodes, and delayed recovery. Ketofol is a combination of ketamine and propofol, and the current study was designed to evaluate the effect of ketamine, propofol, and ketofol on hemodynamic profile, duration of seizure activity, and recovery times in patients undergoing ECT.
