  • Ketamine hydrochloride, or "Special K," is a powerful hallucinogen widely used as an animal tranquilizer by veterinarians. Users sometimes call the high caused by Special K, "K hole," and describe profound hallucinations that include visual distortions and a lost sense of time, sense, and identity.
  • Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic developed in 1963 to replace PCP and currently used in human anesthesia and veterinary medicine. Much of the ketamine sold on the street has been diverted from veterinarians' offices.
  • Ketamine's chemical structure and mechanism of action are similar to those of PCP Ketamine hydrochloride ("Special K" or "K") was originally created for use as a human anaesthetic.
  • Ketamine belongs to a class of drugs called "dissociative anaesthetics," which separate perception from sensation. Other drugs in this category include PCP, DXM and nitrous oxide (laughing gas).
  • Product resulting from grignard reaction involving o-chlorobenzonitrile &  bromocyclopentane is treated in presence of strong alkali to form epoxy cmpd. Reaction of this with methylamine yields imine which rearranges on heating in presence of hcl.
  • Use of ketamine to treat severe cancer pain. The physiologic effects of the use of Telazol-ketamine-xylazine on feral cats in a large-volume spay and neuter clinic.
  • The use of ketamine hydrochloride as an anesthetic for raccoons. Ketamine continues to be used extensively in children and for short-term anaesthesia and analgesia in-patients with burns.
  • In veterinary anesthesia, ketamine is often used for its anaesthetic and analgesic effects on cats, dogs, rabbits, rats, and other small animals. Veterinarians often use ketamine with sedative drugs to produce balanced anaesthesia and analgesia, and as a constant rate infusion to help prevent pain wind-up. Ketamine is used to manage pain among large animals, though it has less effect on bovines.
  • The effect of ketamine on the respiratory and circulatory systems is different from that of other anaesthetics. When used at anaesthetic doses, it will usually stimulate rather than depress the circulatory system. It is sometimes possible to perform ketamine anaesthesia without protective measures to the airways.
  • Ketamine is sold in either powdered or liquid form. In powdered form, its appearance is similar to that of pharmaceutical grade cocaine and can be insufflated (referred to as a "SPECIAL K"), injected, or placed in beverages.
  • There are three main types of ketamine infusion techniques currently being performed on RSD / CRPS patients for the relief of their pain and allodynia symptoms.
  • Propofol-fentanyl-midazolam combination is found to be far superior to propofol-pethidine-midazolam and ketamine-midazolam combinations in respect to haemodynamic stability, oxygenation, shifting to PACU, incidence of complications and discharge readiness.
  • Ketamine has been recommended as an alternative to thiopental sodium for the induction of general anesthesia in patients undergoing elective cesarean section. Compared to thiopental sodium induction, ketamine induction yields a significantly lower intraoperative maternal awareness and better neonatal outcome.
  • According to the survey , 1329 users (14.8% of respondents) had tried ketamine, the vast majority on an experimental or occasional basis, with 279 individuals (3%) claiming to use occasionally or more often. The proportion of users each year is relatively stable between a low of 13.0%, and a high of 18.4% in the smaller in the corresponding year. Similarly current use remains relatively stable at 2-3%.
