Your protocol looks almost exactly like ours, except that I do not pre-treat
with atropine, anxiolytics, or use a papouse board. I understand their rational
but think that in practice they are not needed. I've never had to consider
reversing ketamine. I have, on occasion had to bag, for whatever reason, when
using narcotics and benzodiazepines.
