Safe

Intravenous Ketamine has an impressive safety record as a sedative agent since the 1960s and 1970s -where it was initially utilized as a battlefield anesthetic in Vietnam. To this day, it remains one of the most cardiorespiratory stable medications in any Anesthesiologist’s armamentarium. With Ketamine Clinics of Northern California, your therapy takes place at our AAAHC (Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care) center which is certified to perform general anesthesia -an absolute rarity among ketamine clinics. Although your infusion does not constitute general anesthesia, your treatment takes place in the safest of environments.

Your Reset on Life

Simply stated, Ketamine’s successful treatment of psychiatric disorders can be thought of as a “rebooting of the brain and brain neurons.” For those interested in more mechanistic detail, promising studies show that Ketamine’s blockade of NMDA receptors results in a reflex burst of available neurotransmitter glutamate and immediate induction of synaptogenesis between neurons. Regardless of the mechanism, Ketamine can work for your “Your Reset On Life.”
