Mechanism Of Action After in-vivo conversion of fospropofol into propofol by endothelial alkaline phosphatase, propofol crosses the blood-brain barrier, binds to GABA-A receptors and acts as an agonist. By binding to GABA-A receptor, it will cause an increase in chloride conductance, thus inhibiting the firing of new action potentials in the post-synaptic neuron.
Description of the Drug: Fospropofol is a sedative-­hypnotic agent indicated for monitored anesthesia care (MAC) sedation in adult patients undergoing diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
