49. Subcutaneous ketamine for postoperative pain relief in Rwanda: a randomized clinical trial Full Text available with Trip Pro

Subcutaneous ketamine for postoperative pain relief in Rwanda: a randomized clinical trial Postoperative pain control is often inadequate in low-income countries such as Rwanda, prompting the search for an inexpensive improvement. A randomized controlled trial was conducted to study the use of subcutaneous ketamine for the management of postoperative pain in patients undergoing major surgery in Kigali, Rwanda.Fifty-nine patients undergoing major abdominal, head and neck, plastic (...) , or gynecological surgeries were studied. In addition to standard care, patients received five subcutaneous injections of ketamine 1 mg·kg-1 (ketamine group, n = 30) or normal saline (placebo group, n = 29) during the postoperative period. The first injection was administered in the postanesthesia care unit and then every 12 hr thereafter starting at 20:00 on the day of surgery. Pain was assessed three times per day using an 11-point verbal response scale. Patients were also assessed for side effects, including

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. Group (III) received 10 mL of normal saline instilled in the wound. Total

53. A Comparison of Headache Treatment in the Emergency Department: Prochlorperazine Versus Ketamine (Abstract)

A Comparison of Headache Treatment in the Emergency Department: Prochlorperazine Versus Ketamine Intravenous subdissociative-dose ketamine has been shown to be effective for pain management, but has not been specifically studied for headaches in the emergency department (ED). For this reason, we designed a study to compare standard treatment (prochlorperazine) with ketamine in patients with benign headaches in the ED.This study was a multicenter, double-blind, randomized, controlled trial (...) with a convenience sample of patients presenting to the ED with benign headaches. Patients were randomized to receive either prochlorperazine and diphenhydramine or ketamine and ondansetron. Patients' headache severity was measured on a 100-mm visual analog scale (VAS) at 0, 15, 30, 45, and 60 minutes. Nausea, vomiting, anxiety, and the need for rescue medications were also tracked. Patients were contacted at 24 to 48 hours posttreatment to rate their satisfaction and to determine whether they were still

56. Prefrontal Connectivity and Glutamate Transmission: Relevance to Depression Pathophysiology and Ketamine Treatment Full Text available with Trip Pro

Prefrontal Connectivity and Glutamate Transmission: Relevance to Depression Pathophysiology and Ketamine Treatment Prefrontal global brain connectivity with global signal regression (GBCr) was proposed as a robust biomarker of depression, and was associated with ketamine's mechanism of action. Here, we investigated prefrontal GBCr in treatment-resistant depression (TRD) at baseline and following treatment. Then, we conducted a set of pharmacological challenges in healthy subjects to investigate (...) the glutamate neurotransmission correlates of GBCr.In study A, we used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to compare GBCr between 22 TRD and 29 healthy control. Then, we examined the effects of ketamine and midazolam on GBCr in TRD patients 24h post-treatment. In study B, we acquired repeated fMRI in 18 healthy subjects to determine the effects of lamotrigine (a glutamate release inhibitor), ketamine, and lamotrigine-by-ketamine interaction.In study A, TRD patients showed significant reduction

Smith < > > > > > Title Author Date of Graduation Summer 8-12-2017 Degree Type Capstone Project Degree Name Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies Rights . Abstract Background: Suicide is one of the leading causes of death in the United States. Research has shown that the glutamate N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist ketamine can significantly decrease depressive (...) symptoms, which is a leading cause of suicidal ideation (SI). Preliminary research has shown that ketamine effectively reduces SI. The purpose of this systematic review is to expand on the current understanding of ketamine as a way to treat SI. Methods: An exhaustive search of available medical literature was preformed using OVID, Google Scholar and Web of Science. Keywords included suicide and ketamine. Quality of the eligible studies were evaluated using the Cochrane GRADE method. Results: Two

Adverse Events With Ketamine Versus Ketofol for Procedural Sedation on Adults: A Double-blind, Randomized Controlled Trial The goal of our study was to compare the frequency and severity of recovery reactions between ketamine and ketamine-propofol 1:1 admixture ("ketofol").We performed a multicentric, randomized, double-blind trial in which adult patients received emergency procedural sedations with ketamine or ketofol. Our primary outcome was the proportion of unpleasant recovery reactions (...) . Other outcomes were frequency of interventions required by these recovery reactions, rates of respiratory or hemodynamic events, emesis, and satisfaction of patients as well as providers.A total of 152 patients completed the study, 76 in each arm. Compared with ketamine, ketofol determined a 22% reduction in recovery reactions incidence (p < 0.01) and less clinical and pharmacologic interventions required by these reactions. There was no serious adverse event in both groups. Rates in hemodynamic
