Pain on injection and quality of induction were compared in 74 children (5–12 years) randomly assigned to receive either 5 mg·kg−1 of cold propofol (group A), 5 mg·kg−1 of cold propofol mixed with lignocaine 1% (group B) or 5 mg·kg−1 of propofol at room temperature (22–23°C) mixed with lignocaine 1% (group C). The group receiving cold propofol had to be stopped due to a very high incidence of pain (70%). The incidence of pain on injection was 3% in group B and 17% in group C (not significant). Quality of induction and side‐effects were similar in the two groups.
