We will start to use intranasal ketamine in our Pediatric Emergency for pain control and sedation. A couple of questions for the group:
Is anyone using it for simple laceration repairs, if so what is your dose?
What dose is usually adequate for 1. mild and 2. moderate sedation?
How long does it take for patients to recover after IN ketamine when it is given for 1. mild and 2. moderate sedation?
Thanks for your help! I'm happy to share the responses with anyone who is interested.
