    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello all, can Ketamine be given just as an IVP? Or is it always used for concious sedation, so should I send back to the Dr. and ask for a concious sedation form? He gave 2mg Ketamine IVP per med sheet..thank you, alice, it was so the pt could get a ct done since he was moving around alot and the ativan didn't calm him..thanks

    Yes, Ketamine can be given as an IVP, usually over 1-2 minutes.

    2mg of Ketamine is a low dose. It can be given for pain control. For pediatric conscious sedation the dose is 1-2 mg per kg.
