We will take an initial set of vital signs and start an IV in your arm or hand. The IV is a flexible plastic catheter placed in a vein that is used to deliver your ketamine infusion. We can use numbing medicine before placing the IV so it is a virtually painless experience. The plastic catheter is connected to fluids that contain your prescribed dose of ketamine. During the infusion, we will monitor your heart, breathing, blood pressure, and oxygen level. In addition, we will carefully monitor your reaction to the infusion and make any necessary adjustments.
Each treatment room has dimmable lights and a white noise machine. We can provide ear plugs or you can bring music to listen to if desired. Bring your own playlist or stream live music using our complimentary WiFi .
If you have a history of motion sickness or become nauseous easily, we can administer an anti-nausea medication before your treatment begins. Though unusual, some patients may experience some very mild nausea during their infusion which can be quickly treated with medication in your IV.
