How does everyone feel about the use of low dose IV ketamine either preemptively or prior to emergence for post-op pain relief? Does anyone ever incorporate this technique into their practice? In your experiences, does it seem to decrease post-operative pain and/or opioid requirements? What are the other pros and cons? Thanks in advance for your insight.

At the most recent TANA conference in Dallas it was suggested that 150mcgs/kg Im prior to emergence was showing great promise for post op pain control. Any thoughts on the new dosing suggestions and results.
