Ketamine [Presence] in Specimen
Ketamine is a general dissociative anaesthetic for human and veterinary use. Its hydrochloride salt is sold as Ketanest ®, Ketaset ®, and Ketalar ®. Pharmacologically it is very similar to other dissociative anesthetics such as tiletamine and phencyclidine (PCP). As with many other pharmaceuticals, ketamine is used extramedically as a recreational drug. Ketamine is a chiral compound, with two distinct enantiomers. Most pharmaceutical ketamine preparations are racemic, however reportedly some brands have (mostly undocumented) differences in enantiomeric proportions.

- Change Reason
- The Property has been changed from ACnc to reflect the new model for ordinal terms where results are based on a cut-off value.; The PrThr property is used for LOINC terms whose results are reported using an ordered categorical scale, regardless of whether or not an internal threshold was used to make that determination. This change was approved by the Laboratory LOINC Committee in June 2016.
