Migraña: propofol

 
Academic Life in Emergency Medicine - Saturday, May 25, 2013
 
Propofol for the treatment of migraines in the ED might be on the horizon.

"This will possibly be a new practice in emergency medicine, although it has been known for some time. Propofol, when given at procedural sedation doses, seems to miraculously terminate migraines refractory to usual treatment.
Patients awake with minimal to no headache and may be discharged from the ED much quicker than traditional treatment with possibly less side effects. The proposed mechanism of action is described in below papers, but in short,  propofol seems to "reboot" the brain and terminate the migraine."
