No two patients have identical symptoms or conditions, which is why we offer individualized and customized care. Our experienced team of professionals will sit down with you to discuss your medical history, events leading up to your illness, and any existing concerns. With much experience, we understand the importance of allowing our patients the time to discuss their personal life situations, as these can affect the patients’ decisions on treatment.
Better Patient Monitoring – Caretaker Medical
Ketamine Infusion Therapy is very safe, but it is not without risks. We utilize the Caretaker monitoring system, an advanced form of patient monitoring that allows us to better monitor heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen saturation second by second.
The Caretaker monitoring system is designed to be minimally stimulating. It is a simple finger cuff that measures pulse pressures, as opposed to an arm cuff that squeezes and clicks, potentially compromising the patient’s comfort during treatment. Safe, secure, and accurate patient monitoring is important so that our providers can intervene before any problematic events could occur. We always ensure that the patients are constantly supervised during every part of Ketamine Infusion Therapy.
Minimally Stimulated Ketamine Infusion Therapy
Patients under the influence of ketamine are very suggestible. The ideal dosages can make stimulation uncomfortable and difficult to tolerate. Therefore, we subscribe to the best practice method of Minimally Stimulated Ketamine Infusion Therapy (MSKIT). MSKIT utilizes optimal dosing, which is why our outcomes exceed those of other clinics in the region.
An environment that minimizes stimulation will assist the brain in reaching a theta wave state that facilitates an ideal stimulation of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) release, leading to neuro-optimization. Neuro-optimization is why Ketamine Infusion Therapy works.
Steady State Administration
At Scenic City Neurotherapy, we utilize syringe infusion pumps that allow perfect dosing and administration to ensure infusion quality is the highest standard. We caution against alternative administration methods such as an IV drip because of the irregular and unpredictable administration. Steady-state administration is key to reaching and maintaining therapeutic blood levels. Our best-practice methods ensure our patients reach therapeutic blood levels that are necessary for successful remission of symptoms and comfort of treatment.
Scenic City Neurotherapy has developed a relaxing, low-stimulation environment that enhances the patient’s outcome. Since Ketamine Infusion Therapy is a very personal and private experience, we provide every patient with a private treatment room for the duration of their visit. We encourage our patients to use the provided headphones that play gentle rhythms to support a pleasant experience during the infusion. We turn off the overhead lights leaving soft lamp light illuminating the room. Eye masks are provided for those that prefer no light during treatment.
We always schedule appointments with enough time for the infusion prep, the ketamine infusion, and plenty of recovery time. Most patients are fully recovered within 20-30 minutes after the infusion, but we allow our patients as much time as they need. We will make sure you are ready and safe after your infusion before we let your driver take you home.
