Lori Calabrese. Titrated Serial Ketamine Infusions Stop Outpatient Suicidality and Avert ER Visits and Hospitalizations. Int J Psychiatr Res. 2019; 2(5): 1-12.
SUMMARY:This is the first report of serial titrated IV ketamine infusions in a real-world psychiatry office for adults and adolescents with TRD and complex psychiatric comorbidity to safely and rapidly treat severe suicidal ideation and avert suicide, ER evaluation and hospitalization. It represents the largest number of patients to date reported from a single site in studies of IV ketamine infusions for TRD and suicidality, and a potential breakthrough treatment option for psychiatrists to provide in the office.
