1. Effect of Intranasal Ketamine vs Fentanyl on Pain Reduction for Extremity Injuries in Children: The PRIME Randomized Clinical Trial

Effect of Intranasal Ketamine vs Fentanyl on Pain Reduction for Extremity Injuries in Children: The PRIME Randomized Clinical Trial Timely analgesia is critical for children with injuries presenting to the emergency department, yet pain control efforts are often inadequate. Intranasal administration of pain medications provides rapid analgesia with minimal discomfort. Opioids are historically used for significant pain from traumatic injuries but have concerning adverse effects. Intranasal (...) ketamine may provide an effective alternative.To determine whether intranasal ketamine is noninferior to intranasal fentanyl for pain reduction in children presenting with acute extremity injuries.The Pain Reduction With Intranasal Medications for Extremity Injuries (PRIME) trial was a double-blind, randomized, active-control, noninferiority trial in a pediatric, tertiary, level 1 trauma center.

Early Administration of Ketamine in Refractory Status Epilepticus "Early Administration of Ketamine in Refractory Status Epilepticus" by Kayla Moody < > > > > > Title Author Date of Graduation Summer 8-11-2018 Degree Type Capstone Project Degree Name Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies Rights . Abstract Purpose: While protocols regarding how to treat status epilepticus (SE) has been universally accepted, management of refractory status epilepticus (RSE) is far from being evidence (...) -based. Ketamine (KET), a NMDA-antagonist, may have a role in RSE when other conventional anesthetics fail due to its unique pharmacodynamic properties and good safety profile. Methods: Exhaustive search of available medical literature was performed using MEDLINE-Ovid, MEDLINE-PubMed, Psych INFO, Web of Science, and CINAHL for relevant articles from 2012-2017 using keywords “ketamine” and “status epilepticus.” Additional criteria for consideration: articles applicable to the topic and published

Characteristics of patients expressing an interest in ketamine treatment: results of an online survey Off-label ketamine treatment has shown acute antidepressant effects that offer hope for patients with therapy-resistant depression. However, its potential for integration into treatment algorithms is controversial, not least because the evidence base for maintenance treatment with repeated ketamine administration is currently weak. Ketamine is also a drug of misuse, which has raised concerns (...) regarding the target population. Little is known about which patients would seek ketamine treatment if it were more widely available.To explore some of the characteristics of the patients actively seeking ketamine treatment.An online survey containing questions about duration of current depressive episode, number of antidepressants used and other comments was completed by patients who were exploring the internet regarding the possibility of ketamine for depression.Of the 1088 people who registered

13. A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of Ketamine as an Alternative to Opioids for Acute Pain in the Emergency Department

A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis of Ketamine as an Alternative to Opioids for Acute Pain in the Emergency Department Opioids are commonly prescribed in the emergency department (ED) for the treatment of acute pain. Analgesic alternatives are being explored in response to an epidemic of opioid misuse. Low-dose ketamine (LDK) is one opioid alternative for the treatment of acute pain in the ED.This systematic review and meta-analysis sought to quantify whether LDK is an effective and safe (...) opioid alternative for acute pain reduction in adults in the ED setting. (PROSPERO Registration Number CRD42017065303).This was a systematic review of randomized controlled trials comparing intravenous opioids to LDK for relief of acute pain in the ED. Studies where the control group initially received opioids prior to ketamine were excluded. A research librarian designed the electronic search strategy. Changes in visual analog scale or numeric rating scale pain scales were analyzed to determine

Slow Infusion of Low-dose Ketamine Reduces Bothersome Side Effects Compared to Intravenous Push: A Double-blind, Double-dummy, Randomized Controlled Trial We compared the analgesic efficacy and incidence of side effects when low-dose (0.3 mg/kg) ketamine (LDK) is administered as a slow infusion (SI) over 15 minutes versus an intravenous push (IVP) over 1 minute.This was a prospective, randomized, double-blind, double-dummy, placebo-controlled trial of adult ED patients presenting with moderate (...) to severe pain (numerical rating scale [NRS] score ≥ 5). Patients received 0.3 mg/kg ketamine administered either as a SI or a IVP. Our primary outcome was the proportion of patients experiencing any psychoperceptual side effect over 60 minutes. A secondary outcome was incidence of moderate or greater psychoperceptual side effects. Additional outcomes included reduction in pain NRS scores at 60 minutes and percent maximum summed pain intensity difference (%SPID).Fifty-nine participants completed

18. Ketamine-based anesthesia improves electroconvulsive therapy outcomes: a randomized-controlled study

Ketamine-based anesthesia improves electroconvulsive therapy outcomes: a randomized-controlled study Major depressive disorder (MDD) is a common and debilitating condition that can be challenging to treat. Electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is currently the therapeutic gold standard for treatment-resistant MDD. We tested our hypothesis that ketamine-based anesthesia for ECT results in superior improvement in treatment-resistant MDD outcomes compared with propofol-based anesthesia.Patients (...) with treatment-resistant MDD were enrolled in a randomized clinical trial with assignment to ketamine- or propofol-based anesthesia arms. Using a modified intention-to-treat analysis, we compared the median number of ECT treatments required to achieve a 50% reduction (primary outcome) and a score ≤ 10 (secondary outcome) on the Montgomery-Asberg depression rating scale (MADRS) between anesthesia groups.The study was terminated as significant results were found after the first planned interim analysis with 12

Ketamine for Rapid Reduction of Suicidal Thoughts in Major Depression: A Midazolam-Controlled Randomized Clinical Trial Pharmacotherapy to rapidly relieve suicidal ideation in depression may reduce suicide risk. Rapid reduction in suicidal thoughts after ketamine treatment has mostly been studied in patients with low levels of suicidal ideation. The authors tested the acute effect of adjunctive subanesthetic intravenous ketamine on clinically significant suicidal ideation in patients with major (...) depressive disorder.In a randomized clinical trial, adults (N=80) with current major depressive disorder and a score ≥4 on the Scale for Suicidal Ideation (SSI), of whom 54% (N=43) were taking antidepressant medication, were randomly assigned to receive ketamine or midazolam infusion. The primary outcome measure was SSI score 24 hours after infusion (at day 1).The reduction in SSI score at day 1 was 4.96 points greater for the ketamine group compared with the midazolam group (95% CI=2.33, 7.59; Cohen's d

Efficacy of Postoperative Analgesia of Local Ketamine Wound Instillation Following Total Thyroidectomy: A Randomized, Double-blind, Controlled Clinical Trial Total thyroidectomy is recommended as a line of management of thyroid cancer in many cases. Our aim was to compare postoperative analgesic effect of local ketamine 1 mg/kg instilled in the wound to that of intramuscular (IM) ketamine and placebo after total thyroidectomy.A total of 90 patients aged 18 to 60 years, American Society (...) of Anesthesiologists (ASA) class I to II, with a body weight of 50 to 90 kg, scheduled for total thyroidectomy were enrolled after ethics committee approval in this prospective, randomized, double-blind, controlled study and divided randomly into 3 groups to receive treatment after hemostasis. Group (I) received 1 mg/kg ketamine in a total volume of 10 mL normal saline instilled in the wound. Group (II) received 1 mg/kg of IM ketamine.
