Rapid Agitation Control with Ketamine in the ED: Current progress, challenges, and future directions

Abstract: When patients arrive at the emergency department (ED) agitated, aggressive, and with potentially violent behaviour, it is paramount to find a way to address the situation quickly for the safety of patients and ED staff. Patients may be suffering from mental health crises, substance misuse, severe infections, or trauma, and caring for them and other patients is a primary concern for ED staff. This randomized controlled trial investigates the use of intramuscular (IM) ketamine compared to current standard care medications for the rapid and safe control of patients in the ED who present to the ED with aggression or violent behaviour. The trial began enrolling patients June 11, 2018 and there have been both successful moments and challenges to this point. Dr. Barbic will be discussing these, as well as future directions for ED and pre-hospital research in this field.

Work in Progress (WiP) presentations take place at St. Paul’s Hospital in the Hurlburt Auditorium on alternating Wednesdays from 12:00–1:00 PM. These seminars provide investigators with an opportunity to present ongoing research, obtain feedback from colleagues and peers, and make new connections for their projects. Talks are open, and a light lunch is served.

  • Democratizing health research through patient engagement
  • Evaluating patient engagement (why is it important and who is it really for?)
  • How can we meaningfully share our research discoveries beyond the covers of traditional research journals?
