Objective: To evaluate efficiency between ketofol and propofol in minor surgical procedure in Bangladesh. Methods: This experimental study is conducted at tertiary medical college and hospital, from March 2019 to March 2020, where 200 between 21-50 years old with the ASA physical status class I and II were included in the study. Result: During the study, most of the patients in both groups belong to 31-40 years age group, 51% and 63%, followed by 36% and 30% in 21-30 years age group, 8% and 7%

In group-A, 14% had decreased level of SPO2<90% where as in group-B it was 22% followed by 11% had apnea in group-A whereas in group B it was 9%. Also, in group A 3% had slow respiration, in group B it was 7%. Conclusion: From result and observation we can say that, the combination of ketamine and propofol (ketofol) has several advantages over the propofol alone for the anesthesia in minor surgical procedures. The combination has less antagonistic effects than the either drug alone due to their complementary effects of lowering the dose of both drugs. Further study is essentially needed for better outcome.
