Ketamine2- Intoxicated Head Trauma Patient

June 27, 2016

Intoxicated Head Trauma patient with bumps on the head like one noted on cartoons after hit with a hammer and other forms of cartoon blunt trauma.

3-5mg/kg intramuscular dose. I had to prove to myself on my live patients in ed that the foamed knowledge I had just read was safe. This is not in ATLS text. 

Remember the bad voodoo of Ketamine being bad for head trauma. Watching the United States Airway Pararescue in the television series Combat Rescue. I also read about the Israeli's who documented the Eitan Melamed study with very small numbers but based on long history of using ketamine in trauma patients in the field.

Hmmm. Click on this link for more foamed pdf knowledge.
