MetadataShow full item record
Ketalar (Ketamine Hydrochloride) was used as the sole anaesthetic agent by a single operator in fifty cases of uterine evacuation. The procedure was easy in use, and safe. It was noted that Ketalar caused a significant increase in tone of the uterine musculature,obviating the need for oxytocic drugs. The incidence of emergence phenomena was low. The patients, and staff were well pleased with the outcome.
