IV Ketamine Infusion

St. Joseph's Health Care London Pain Management Program

This is a handout to explain that Ketamine is a medication most commonly used as an anesthetic during surgical procedures. At lower doses, ketamine is used to treat certain types of nerve pain that have not responded to other pain management approaches. The most common condition for which IV (intravenous) ketamine infusions are used in the pain clinic is complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS).
