Id: NCT03879564

Organisation Name: Mahidol University

Overal Status: Unknown status

Start Date: April 5, 2019

Lead Sponsor: Mahidol University

Brief Summary: This is a randomized, double-blinded study to evaluate the analgosedative effect of ketamine in a surgical intensive care unit. The patients who will receive continuous fentanyl infusion for either pain control or sedation will be recruited in this trial. Fentanyl will be titrated with initial loading doses of 20 mcg until the numeral rating scale(NRS) less than 4 or critical care pain observation tool (CPOT) less than 3 or Richmond agitation sedation score (RASS) -2-0. Then the patients will be randomised in to receive saline infusion in control group (Group C) or ketamine infusion in ketamine group (Group K). Ketamine will be administered with an initial bolus of 0.3 mg/kg followed by a perfusion of1.5 mcg/kg/min during the first 48 h. The dose of fentanyl will be protocolized adjusted according to NRS or CPOT or RASS.

Conditions:
  • Critically Ill
  • Pain, Postoperative
