Describe the pharmacology of propofol.
Those candidates who did poorly lacked any structure for answering a pharmacology question.

known. Doses of the drug were often incorrectly stated.
Important aspects such as dose or pharmacodynamics were often omitted and a structured
approach helps avoid this.
