Infusion Therapy occurs in private rooms with constant mechanical monitoring of heart rate, pulse, blood oxygen saturation percentages and blood pressure.
Using an IV, an appropriate dose of ketamine is administered over a 40 minute time frame or longer. Practitioners constantly observe the patients vital signs from the nursing station. Patients will notice that a practitioner will enter the patient treatment room several times during the active phase of the infusion to monitor the depth of sedation and ensure comfort.
Most patients report a relaxing and peaceful experience. Patients will most likely experience changes in vision and their ability to clearly focus on objects or people, speech will be slurred or slowed, most will have an experience of floating or being disconnected.
