Applications of Subanesthetic Ketamine In and Out of the Operating Room
The opioid crisis has led anesthesiologists and pain physicians to focus on non-opioid analgesics as one way to combat reliance on opioids. Ketamine is a potent non-opioid analgesic that can be used in this role. Evidence for ketamine in both surgical and non-surgical patients will be discussed to help anesthesiologists understand when to consider using it.
Participants will learn which patient groups benefit most from ketamine, appropriate dosing strategies, and side effects and toxicities to watch for. This one-hour live webinar offers 1 CME credit.
