Ketamine Treatment

Ketamine is used primarily as an anesthetic in human beings and in animals. Ketamine treatment has been shown to be effective in patients with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), formerly known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), a debilitating chronic pain syndrome. It has also been used in the treatment of acute pain, addiction and experimentally to treat depression. It is sometimes used for recreational purposes. It is known by the nicknames, ‘K’, ‘Ket’, ‘Special K’, ‘Vitamin K’, ‘Pony dust’ and others.

Penalties For Possession buy liquid ketamine 

Legally speaking, ‘K’ is a Class C Drug. This means it carries the least severe penalties for possession for personal use. In 2003, the United States, more than 80 per cent of seizures for this drug have been found to originate in Mexico. Most of the drug used recreationally today comes from India.

Helpful Uses

The main use of ‘K’ is in anesthesia. It may be used as the sole anesthetic in children. Because it suppresses breathing significantly less than other anesthetics, it is useful in patients with asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It is used in emergency medicine for trapped patients suffering from trauma, on the battlefield and in cases where the patient’s fluid status cannot be accurately assessed (for example, at the scene of a traffic accident).

CRPS/RSD

CRPS/RSD is a severe, chronic, progressive pain condition. It has autonomic, sensory, dystrophic and motor components (the term, ‘dystrophy’ refers to the degeneration of muscle tissue). The pain is continuous and worsens with time. It may be accompanied by swelling and changes to the skin. It may start in an arm or a leg and and spread to other parts of the body.

Treatment Techniques

There are two different treatment modalities for using ‘K’ to treat CRPS/RSD. The ‘awake’ technique consists of a slow infusion of a low dose over a period of days. This may take place in a hospital or as an outpatient. The second technique involves putting the patient into a medically-induced coma and giving them a large bolus of the drug. This method is not approved for use in the United States but is widely practiced in Germany and is also used in parts of Mexico.
