Evaluation of Ketamine Treatment
Outcomes and Purposeful Data Analysis
Widely used, ketamine is a powerful analgesic and sedative with a favorable safety profile for EMS. Nevertheless, recent media stories have called into question the safe prehospital use of this medication.
Brent Myers, MD, MPH, FACEP, FAEMS, Chief Medical Officer for ESO; and Remle Crowe, PhD, NREMT, Research Scientist for ESO, present “Evaluation of a treatment: Ketamine, outcomes and purposeful data analysis,” as part of the Pinnacle webinar series.
In this webinar, learn about the indications for ketamine use by EMS and outcomes for patients who receive this medication in the prehospital setting. We’ll show you how to harness the power of data to monitor prehospital ketamine use as a framework for your agency to evaluate and communicate with key stakeholders about any prehospital clinical treatment.
