Id: NCT02363270

Organisation Name: Maimonides Medical Center

Overal Status: Completed

Start Date: April 1, 2015

Last Update: November 22, 2017

Lead Sponsor: Antonios Likourezos

Brief Summary: Our previous published research comparing the efficacy of intravenous ketamine to morphine has shown ketamine to provide equivalent relief of moderate to severe acute pain in emergency medicine patients. Secondary analysis of the previous published research has also revealed ketamine to have statistically more side effects. The investigators believe that increasing the time of administration of the ketamine, from a push injection to a drip infusion, will minimize the side effects experienced by recipients of ketamine.
