In our first episode, we discuss a review article The Use of Ketamine in Neuropathic Pain with co-author Dr. Sanjog Pangarkar. Dr. Pangarkar is the director of the West Los Angeles VA pain medicine service and is board certified in internal medicine, physical medicine and rehabilitation and pain medicine. Learn about ketamine's history, mechanism of action, clinical applications, economic considerations, and a first-hand account of how it is administered.
Citations include the primary article and a case report that we co-authored with Dr. Pangarkar that is referenced during the interview.
