In a nutshell:  This paper examines the effects of subanesthetic ketamine infusions on pain intensity and opioid use in children and adolescents with chronic pain syndromes treated in an outpatient setting and suggests that subanesthetic ketamine infusion is feasible in an outpatient setting and may benefit children and adolescents with chronic pain. Furthermore it concludes patients with CRPS, POTS, and a history of trauma-related chronic pain are more likely to benefit from this therapeutic modality.
