Ketamine Infusion Procedure by Save Minds at Smart Clinics

Save Minds, a division of Smart Clinics Family Medical Centres, provides Ketamine infusion procedure for depression, and in particular, for those patients that may have resisted previous treatments. It happens that the number of people who do not respond to antidepressants represents about 30% of all depressed people on average. Considering that antidepressants are specifically designed to target and improve an individual’s basic ability to function – a non-success rate of one in three is significant. It is also known that, save for Ketamine infusion treatment for depression, there hasn’t been a major breakthrough in pharmaceutical treatment for depression for some time. Experts within the field, particularly those who specialise in depression and suicide, agree that there is a need to develop a way of supporting patients feel better more rapidly than the typical wait time of 4 – 8 weeks that traditional antidepressants take to affect.

BENEFITS

Rapid wide-ranging benefitS

Ketamine continues to attract broad attention is as it has been shown to have a rapid effect on most patients, especially those that have shown resistance to other forms of treatments for depression. One dose of Ketamine infusion treatment for depression will typically kick in within hours of its administration, with its subsequent benefits felt for up to one week. Doctors in the US, due to its rapid onset, will often administer Ketamine to emergency room patients who have attempted to suicide.

Depression is considered complex because of how diverse it is – symptoms typically exist in a spectrum; however, Ketamine appears to present patients with wide ranging benefits across these symptoms. In fact, it has been shown to influence positive effects in patients with post-traumatic stress disorder (‘PTSD’), anxious bipolar depression, suicidal thoughts and loss of pleasure (or anhedonia).

Our clinics provide patients with paid-for ketamine infusion for depression services – these are particularly helpful for those patients that suffer depression and have also resisted other types of treatments administered to them by either a psychiatrist or a GP. In essence, the service is intended to tackle depression that is non-responsive to Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (‘SSRIs’) or other care plans for patients with severe depression. With more than 300 million people globally suffering some sort of depression, it is by far the leading mental disorder condition.
