UNLABELLED Clinically used ketamine is a racemic mixture of two isomers, S(+)- and R(-)-ketamine. The anaesthetic potency of S(+)-ketamine was found to be three times higher than that of R(-)-ketamine. It was the aim of this study to compare the effects of racemic ketamine and S(+)-ketamine on endocrine and cardiovascular parameters, recovery and psychomimetic reactions in young healthy volunteers. METHODS 6 women and 4 men between 23 and 38 years were investigated twice in a randomized… CONTINUE READING
