Conscious sedation with subanaesthetic doses of propofol is an effective technique for the management of highly anxious patients in dentistry. Prolonged administration of propofol to achieve conscious sedation in spontaneously breathing patients without an airway adjunct has not been reported previously. We describe the management of target-controlled conscious sedation with propofol for 21 h in a patient undergoing gynaecological radiotherapy.
