Scott Weingart, of EMCrit fame, was gracious enough to do a two-part, flipped classroom presentation on the use of ketamine since he pushes the drug on a daily basis for a wide variety of applications.
One of the weaknesses of SOF medic education is the lack of experience in administration of live drugs on patients. This interview should help answer any questions we may have as a community as we move forward on using Ketamine for longer term drips and sedation in austere environments. We recorded the interview in order to prepare for the live Q&A session.
One of Scott’s ideas was to have everyone listen to a talk Reuben Strayer gave at the Social Media and Critical Care (SMACC) Conference titled Ketamine: How to Use it Fearlessly for All it’s Indications. So if you haven’t already, click on the link below or search for the title in your favorite podcast app and listen to it prior to listening to the first part of the Interview. This will allow us to start at a common level of base knowledge and understanding as we go down some of the rabbit holes of our discussion.
