2.  Paradoxical reactions to benzodiazepines in intravenous sedation: a report of 2 cases and review of the literature. 
Anesthesia Progress  2002;49(4):128-132.
Paradoxical reactions to benzodiazepines have been thoroughly reported since the introduction of this type of drug. The mechanism of benzodiazepine action is through the gamma-aminobutyric acid receptors. Properties of benzodiazepine include sedation, anxiolysis, amnesia, anticonvulsion, and muscle relaxation. Unfortunately, adverse paradoxical reactions can be stimulated by benzodiazepines and are difficult to predict and diagnose. Two cases of paradoxical reactions associated with the use of intravenous midazolam are presented, and the management of this complication and its different etiologies are reviewed. The relationship of the paradoxical reaction to alteration of the cholinergic homeostasis, serotonin levels, the role of genetics, and gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor configuration is discussed.

3.  Propofol as an Intravenous Agent in General Anesthesia and Conscious Sedation 
Anesthesia Progress  1988;35(4):147-151.
Propofol has been shown in clinical studies to be a safe, effective, hypnotic, and amnesic anesthetic agent at induction doses of 2-2.5 mg/kg and maintenance doses of approximately 9mg/kg per hour. Significant post-induction hypotension reported earlier can be reduced to a all in MAP of less than 25% when the drug is used alone (without nitrous oxide or narcotic premedication). Post-induction apnea is minimized by avoidance of pre-induction hyperventilation. Acute and long term venous tolerance is acceptable. Emergence from anesthesia induced and maintained with propofol is rapid, predictable and relatively free of postoperative complications. Incidence of drug interaction is low. Propofol causes no adrenocortical suppression and is not potentiated by ethanol, diazepam, amitriptyline or phenelzine. Preliminary investigation of propofol as an intravenous sedative agent at subanesthetic doses has been favorable.
