Procedural sedation is frequently used to facilitate distressing and painful procedures in the pediatric emergency department. However, administering an intramuscular medication or placing an intravenous line to give intravenous medications can be as distressing as the procedure itself. Oral medications generally take longer to work and are subject to first-pass metabolism. Another alternative is to give the medication by the intranasal route, which only requires a spray into the nose. Ketamine is a good sedative drug with favorable qualities, and is often used intramuscularly or intravenously. It has been used intranasally as a pre-induction by anesthetics, sedation for CT scans, and brief dental procedures, but its use has not yet been demonstrated in the setting of the pediatric emergency department for procedural sedation. We will be comparing three different doses of ketamine, applied intranasally using a mucosal atomization device, and determining if there are any differences in efficacy of sedation, time to onset of sedation, duration of sedation, caregiver and physician satisfaction, and number of adverse events. We will also use this opportunity to determine ketamine bioavailability when given intranasally using the mucosal atomization device.

Admixtures of propofol-ketamine, propofol-ketamine-fentanyl, and propofol-ketamine-remifentanil were subjected to various clinically relevant conditions to study their chemical stability. A novel high...
A cyclohexanone derivative used for induction of anesthesia. Its mechanism of action is not well understood, but ketamine can block NMDA receptors (RECEPTORS, N-METHYL-D-ASPARTATE) and may interact with sigma receptors.
A hallucinogen formerly used as a veterinary anesthetic, and briefly as a general anesthetic for humans. Phencyclidine is similar to KETAMINE in structure and in many of its effects. Like ketamine, it can produce a dissociative state. It exerts its pharmacological action through inhibition of NMDA receptors (RECEPTORS, N-METHYL-D-ASPARTATE). As a drug of abuse, it is known as PCP and Angel Dust.
