Ketamine treatment is effective in patients with complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). It is also known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), as debilitating chronic pain syndrome.
Pharmaceutical companies are rushing to develop drugs that improve on it or can be combined with it. Neuro X has progressed with its drug cycloserine when combined with ketamine drugs, which has the potential to treat bipolar depression which doctors have struggled to treat successfully.

There are three types of local anesthesia.
The most common form of local anesthesia is the type used for dental injection, where the loss of sensation only affects a limited area.
Local anesthetics that affect all parts of the body, such as the arm or leg, produce what is called regional anesthesia. The injection is given close to where the nerve leaves the spinal cord.
Drugs can be injected to produce partial anesthesia combined with amnesia. The patient then becomes peaceful and relaxed.
What precautions are taken before anesthesia is given and after consciousness has recovered?
Patients are not allowed to eat or drink for at least four hours before surgery. This reduces changes in vomiting and inhaled fluid into the lungs when anesthesia is given. After surgery, the anesthesiologist must remain with the patient until consciousness recovers.
