We present four patients in whom a "ketofol" (ketamine 200 mg and propofol 200 mg) infusion was used in conjunction with regional anaesthesia. The patients were considered 'high risk' due to their medical condition or age. The ketofol proved safe and effective in all four cases. Advantages of this technique included analgesia, airway preservation, maintenance of spontaneous respiration, haemodynamic stability and rapid recovery.
