Neurocognitive Changes after Sustained Ketamine Administration in Children with Chronic Pain

Ketamine has received attention recently as an agent for chronic pain. There are concerns, however, regarding the neurocognitive changes patients might experience after ketamine exposure. Ketamine is an agent that has been used as a dissociative anesthetic during painful procedures and during induction of anaesthesia in both adults and children for greater than 50 years. However, there are concerns of the long-term neurocognitive effects of ketamine administration. Children who have had multiple surgeries requiring anesthesia with (and without) ketamine have been noted to have neurocognitive delays. It has been impossible, to date, to determine if these neurocognitive delays are related to the ketamine, to the other anesthetic agents, or to a combination of both.
