A 40-year-old man with no past medical history was riding his bicycle when he rode over a large pothole in the road, fell to the curb, and sustained a closed mid-shaft right femur fracture.

Your colleague suggests ketofol for sedation for the ED procedure. Which of the following is BEST supported by the current evidence?
