Ketamine is an anesthetic used mostly during procedures in the OR. It works in the brain to inhibit painful sensations. Ketamine has been widely used in the Emergency Department at UNC Hospitals to control acute pain during laceration repairs, hernia reductions, and incision and drainage of abscesses. Recently, Ketamine has been trialed as a pharmacologic therapy for chronic pain patients.
