The effect of intravenous ketamine on cerebrospinal fluid pressure.


The effect of an intravenous injection of ketamine 1.1 mg/kg on the cerebrospinal fluid (cs.f.) pressure was studied in 20 patients during nitrous oxide-oxygen and relaxant anaesthesia. In 11 patients with normal cs.f. pathways the pressure did not alter significantly, but in 6 of 9 patients with intracranial space-occupying lesions there was a substantial… (More)
