Comparison of Ketamine and Etomidate During Rapid Sequence Intubation in Trauma Patients

2019-10-15 11:11:04 | BioPortfolio


In trauma patients with high shock index, the investigators compare the effects on hemodynamics between ketamine and etomidate.


In trauma patients, rapid sequence intubation is recommended. The drug of choice, however, has been debated. One cohort comparative study showed ketamine had benefit in hemodynamics compared to etomidate in trauma patients. One observational study showed in high shock index patients, ketamine showed maintain systolic blood pressure. And other retrospective showed less clinical hypotension was less in ketamine. However there is no randomized controlled study comparing ketamine and etomidate in trauma patients. The purpose of this study is comparing the effects of hemodynamics between ketamine and etomidate in high shock index trauma patients.

Ketamine / Propofol Admixture "Ketofol" at Induction in the Critically Ill Against Etomidate: KEEP PACE Trial

The hypothesis of this study is that a Ketamine / Propofol mixture will produce more stable hemodynamics as compared to Etomidate during emergent intubations in the intensive care unit. P...

Ketamine Versus Etomidate for Procedural Sedation for Pediatric Orthopedic Reductions

There are multiple retrospective studies detailing the use of etomidate in pediatric procedural sedation but few to no prospective clinical trials. None have compared etomidate to ketamin...

Evaluating the Hemodynamic Effects of Ketamine Versus Etomidate During Rapid Sequence Intubation

The purpose of this study is to compare the hemodynamic effects of ketamine v etomidate during rapid sequence intubation (RSI) in the pre-hospital and emergency department setting.

Ketamine Versus Etomidate During Rapid Sequence Intubation: Consequences on Hospital Morbidity

The expected benefit is a reduction of the morbidity of patients admitted in the intensive care unit having received ketamine for intubation.

Etomidate Versus Ketamine for Emergency Endotracheal Intubation: a Prospective Randomized Clinical Trial

Patients who are having problems breathing sometimes require placement of a breathing tube in their mouth and windpipe. The purpose of this breathing tube is to save the patient's life. It...

KEtaminE/ProPofol Admixture vs Etomidate for Intubation in the Critically-Ill: KEEP PACE Randomized Clinical Trial.

Peri-intubation hypotension is associated with poor outcomes in the critically-ill. We aimed to determine if an admixture of ketamine and propofol for emergent endotracheal intubation in critically-il...

Ultrasound-guided joint injection is more accurate than palpation-guided injection and performed more frequently. Joint injection is helpful for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes as well as for inje...

Increased Reactivity of the Mesolimbic Reward System after Ketamine Injection in Patients with Treatment-resistant Major Depressive Disorder.

The antidepressant effect of ketamine is associated with increased activity in the reward circuitry of the brain and a suppression of circuitry that mediates perceptual processing of negative emotions...

Long-Lasting Effects of Repeated Ketamine Administration in Adult and Adolescent Rats.

Initiation of ketamine use often occurs in adolescence, yet little is known about long-term consequences when use begins in this developmental period. The current experiments were designed to examine ...

Peripheral antinociception induced by ketamine is mediated by the endogenous opioid system.

Ketamine is a drug largely used in clinical practice as an anesthetic and it can also be used as an analgesic to manage chronic pain symptoms. Despite its interactions with several other signaling sys...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Adverse reactions that occur initially at the site of injection or infusion. Milder type is confined to a local allergic flare reaction. A more severe reaction is caused by extravasation of VESICANTS from the blood vessel at the site of injection and can cause damage to the surrounding tissue. In tumor flare reaction symptoms involve well beyond the injection site such as an increase in the tumor size and tumor markers levels, bone pain, and HYPERCALCEMIA.

Total or subtotal destruction of the pituitary gland by chemical injection. It is usually achieved by injection of ethyl alcohol via trans-sphenoidal cannulation under stereotaxic control. It is usually performed for the treatment of intractable pain.

Hemorrhagic necrosis that was first demonstrated in rabbits with a two-step reaction, an initial local (intradermal) or general (intravenous) injection of a priming endotoxin (ENDOTOXINS) followed by a second intravenous endotoxin injection (provoking agent) 24 h later. The acute inflammation damages the small blood vessels. The following intravascular coagulation leads to capillary and venous THROMBOSIS and NECROSIS. Shwartzman phenomenon can also occur in other species with a single injection of a provoking agent, and during infections or pregnancy. Its susceptibility depends on the status of IMMUNE SYSTEM, coagulation, FIBRINOLYSIS, and blood flow.

The analysis of a chemical substance by inserting a sample into a carrier stream of reagent using a sample injection valve that propels the sample downstream where mixing occurs in a coiled tube, then passes into a flow-through detector and a recorder or other data handling device.

Intradermal injection of a heated (pasteurized) saline suspension of sarcoid tissue obtained from a sarcoid spleen or lymph node. In patients with active sarcoidosis a dusky red nodule develops slowly over the next few weeks at the injection site. Histologic examination, an essential part of the complete test, reveals sarcoid tissue.
