  1. The induction, recovery and combination of both times showed a significant difference between dexmedetomidine–propofol group and the other two groups with a p value of < 0.001 with a lower induction time of 12.2 min and a recovery time of 10 min and a total combination time of 22.2 min, while the dexmedetomidine group (18 min, 21.1 min, and 39.1 min, respectively) shows significant difference to dexmedetomidine/ketamine group (20 min, 29.2 min, and 49.1 min respectively) with a p value of < 0.001
