What is Ketamine?


Ketamine is an anesthetic drug first synthesized by Calvin L. Stevens PhD and his team in 1962. It is an analog of phencyclidine. It is a dissociative anesthetic that produces intense analgesia and amnesia. The clinical effect of Ketamine is produced through inhibition of the N-methyl-D-asparate (NMDA) receptors. Ketamine also has clinical effects at opioid, noradrenergic, cholinergic, nicotinic, and muscarinic receptors.


Ketamine administration for anesthesia has been described as causing a dissociative amnestic state. Patients are unconscious with eyes open, maintain spontaneous respirations, and do not react to painful or noxious stimuli. Low dose infusion of Ketamine is used for analgesia in postoperative patients. Ketamine also has effects on mood, and low dose infusions are now being used to treat severe treatment resistant depression and suicidal ideations.


Ketamine was approved by the FDA in 1970, and it is listed as an essential medication for anesthesia and pain management by the World Health Organization.
