What anesthesia is used for tee?

Anesthesia is maintained with propofol by infusion (5-10 mg/kg/hr). The TEE probe is passed as the patient loses consciousness and is protected by a bite block next to which O 2 (8 l/min) flows. Jaw thrust is used to maintain the airway as needed. Any patient movement is treated with further propofol (0.25mg/kg).
