Hands Off The Ketamine!

photo (26)

Folks, this is serious! China has proposed to UN to add ketamine to a restricted list of drugs, meaning it will become very hard for low income nations to access this effective anaesthetic agent .

Read what the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland have to say about this issue!

Fact Sheet on the Proposal to Discuss International Scheduling of Ketamine at the 58th CND

I havent been able to find any communications from ANZCA on this issue. Please let me know if you have come across any!

Support our colleagues in countries where ketamine is a widely used anaesthetic agent! Lobby UK politicians to vote against this proposal!

  1. Reblogged this on MEDEST and commented:
    MEDEST join and support the disappointment about Ketamine restriction and its potential effects on medical use in low income nations. We support the work of collegues that face everyday the challenge of working in countries where the lack of resources makes being an intensivist the hardest experience.
    So Hands Off The Ketamine!
