well, we still use it here in the US!!!...(small cities, with really tiny hospital, they still use Halothane, Isoflurane and succinylcholine)

Do you have any reference for the propofol causing pancreatitis!...yup...just go to pubmed.gov....

Correct Answer B is the answer

Well propofol causes pancreatitis cos it is made up of large amounts of Triglycerides.
And i recommend DIT too and get the notes that come with it. I mean it is 15 days.....no harm done!
