Thanks for all of the replies on the IN ketamine.

My conclusions:

   - There is limited data but several of us have been experimenting with
   using it
   - Low doses can give some pain relief
   - Higher doses (9-10mg/kg) can give you some dissociative effect
   - The effect is inconsistent
   - The advantage over other agents seems to be limited, e.g. IN fentanyl
   for pain, IN versed or nitrous oxide or anxiolysis
   - Indeed, for many of us, the full procedural sedation protocol will
   need to go into effect regardless of the route of administration.

Thanks so much for the feedback.
