– IV ketamine infusion therapy
Once Miracle Hills Clinic has your medical history form on file and has received an Acknowledgement of Ongoing Care signed by your mental health practitioner or primary care physician, you are free to schedule your first ketamine infusion.
On the day of your first infusion, plan to be at the Omaha ketamine clinic for approximately 1.5-2 hours if you are receiving ketamine infusions for depression or psychiatric disorders, or longer if you are receiving ketamine infusions for chronic pain management. Do not eat solid foods, milk, pulpy juices, or soup for at least 6 hours before your infusion. You may enjoy water and other clear liquids, Gatorade, apple juice, black coffee, or tea up to 2 hours prior to your infusion.
During your ketamine infusion, Miracle Hills Clinic will set an IV, apply state-of-the-art monitoring equipment for your heart rate, heart rhythm and oxygen levels, and then begin the infusion. While staff administers your ketamine infusion, you will be awake and alert. You will be able to interact with people, though most patients enjoy relaxing or listening to music during their ketamine infusion. You can anticipate a 45-minute infusion time for the treatment of depression and mood disorders, or up to 4-hours if you are treating a chronic pain condition.
Post-infusion, Miracle Hills Clinic will monitor your vitals for another half hour. Once staff determines that you are stable, they will release you into the care of a friend or relative who can safely drive you home. The clinic asks that you please not operate a vehicle for at least 24-hours after your ketamine treatment.
Research shows that the most effective ketamine infusion protocol for the treatment of depression is 4-6 infusions over the course of two weeks. Serial infusions are more effective than single infusions. After your initial 4-6 infusions, you may need maintenance infusions on an ongoing basis to help maintain the positive results of your ketamine treatments. How often you need maintenance infusions will be dependent on your needs, as well as on the impact of other therapies you are using in conjunction with ketamine infusions.
