  • Myths About Ketamine

    A common misrepresentation by the media, this myth gives the impression that ketamine use in humans is somehow deviant.

In fact, it’s one of only two injected general anesthetics listed on the World Health Organization’s Model List of Essential Medicines—a core list of “the most efficacious, safe and cost-effective medicines for priority conditions.”
