ESO Publishes Peer-Reviewed Paper On Prehospital Ketamine Use At A National Level


ESO, the leading data and software company serving emergency medical services (EMS), fire departments, hospitals, and state EMS/Trauma offices, today announced findings from a peer-reviewed research study focused on prehospital ketamine use. The study uses data from the ESO Data Collaborative, one of the largest prehospital research databases in the country. The findings are based on more than 11,000 patients receiving ketamine by EMS from January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019.

"The ketamine conversation has reached a national, mainstream audience," said Dr. Brent Myers, Chief Medical Officer for ESO. "We felt it imperative to look at the full range of ketamine use and impact through an objective, data-driven lens to understand the effect of the medication on patients in both the prehospital setting and, to the extent we have data, through hospital outcome."

Key Findings Include:

"ESO has brought forth a large and robust data set that provides clarity on the safety of ketamine used in the field for behavioral emergencies when administered by providers overseen by EMS physicians," said Dr. Michael Levy, President of NAEMSP. "NAEMSP, the largest organization representing EMS physicians and other professional EMS providers, thanks ESO for providing these data to help support our best practice model of EMS."

"Our key mission is to help improve the health and safety of our communities through the power of data," added Dr. Myers. "We hope the data from this research help contribute to a meaningful and rational conversation about the use of ketamine by EMS providers across the country as we explore and examine tools to help first responders keep patients and themselves safe."
