Ketamina: sedación procedimental

emupdates.com - December 25th, 2013 - By Reuben Strayer
"The ability of ketamine to produce dissociation is of great value to clinicians who perform painful procedures, and this practice is firmly entrenched in pediatric emergency practice. In the past decade, ketamine has seen an expanded role in general emergency medicine for a variety of indications, especially as mythical contraindications around intracranial pressure, intraocular pressure, and psychiatric disease have been debunked. However, adults who receive ketamine are more likely than kids to develop emotional distress, which makes some providers reluctant to use ketamine in patients they cannot lift with one hand. This reluctance is unwarranted and, given the efficacy and safety advantages of ketamine over other agents for procedural sedation, not considering ketamine is suboptimal care. Understanding the effects of ketamine on the brain empowers you to use it fearlessly, even recklessly, to the benefit of your patients of all ages."
