Low dose special K

Here's a video from Prof Larry Mellick which demostrates the efficacy of low dose Ketamine (as an infusion) for neuropathic pain. Ketamine, for those that who are unaware, can be used for the following purposes quite safely. Here is St Emlyn's view on this.

  • Analgesia
  • RSI (most useful in trauma)
  • Maintenance of sedation (ventilated patients)
  • Procedural sedation (esp for children)
