Ketamine (INN) is a medication with many uses. It is used in medical procedures with humans and other animals. It is mainly for starting and maintaining general anesthesia.

Other uses include sedation in intensive care, as a pain killer (particularly in emergency medicine and persons with potentially compromised respiration and/or allergies to opiate and barbiturate analgesics), as treatment of bronchospasm, and as a treatment for complex regional pain syndrome.
