Organisation Name: Maimonides Medical Center

Overal Status: Recruiting

Start Date: April 16, 2019

Lead Sponsor: Antonios Likourezos

Brief Summary: The investigators previous research study comparing the efficacy of intravenous ketamine to morphine showed ketamine to provide equivalent relief of moderate to severe acute pain in emergency department patients. A second study by the investigators showed that increasing the time of administration of the ketamine, from a push injection to a drip infusion, will minimize the adverse effects experienced by recipients of ketamine.

The investigators now aim to see if nebulized subdissociative-dose ketamine administered as a single agent in a dose of 1.5 mg/kg via Breath-Actuated Nebulizers (BAN) over 5-15 minutes will provide a better pain relief in comparison to 1 mg/kg and 0.75 mg/kg doses or if the lower doses are equally as effective.
