Brief Summary: Total Knee Replacements are associated with a frequent incidence of intense postoperative pain, particularly during early attempts at mobilisation. This trial will investigate the effective of adding Ketamine to a Morphine Patient Controlled Analgesia (PCA) system in order to improve analgesic efficacy, focusing on the first 48 hours. It will also measure side effects that might emerge from adding Ketamine to a Morphine PCA, the level of patient satisfaction with their PCA, and whether the addition of Ketamine leads to less PCA use.

Countries:
  • Australia
Conditions:
  • Pain after Total Knee Replacement
  • Ketamine in patient controlled analgesia side effects
  • Morphine patient controlled analgesia side effects
