Id: NCT02828566

Organisation Name: Lawson Health Research Institute

Overal Status: Unknown status

Start Date: October 2017

Last Update: August 29, 2017

Lead Sponsor: Lawson Health Research Institute

Brief Summary: This study will examine the effectiveness of intranasal (IN) ketamine compared to standard intravenous (IV) ketamine administration for simple reductions of orthopaedic injuries in the paediatric population. The aim is to assess if IN administration is equivalent to the current standard of care, IV. The population to be studied is children 4-17 years of age who require a simple orthopaedic reduction. Following a double dummy approach to overcome the difficulty in masking interventions, each participant will receive both IV and IN interventions, only one of which will be the real drug. Procedural sedation and analgesia (PSA) will be assessed using the Dartmouth Operative Conditions Scale (DOCS).
