Abstract
Ketamine is a rapidly acting dissociative anesthetic that can be administered as a sole agent, an induction agent, or a supplement to low potency anesthetic agents.It is usually used for the minor surgery or outpatient surgery in pediatric anesthesia because of the undesirable psychotomimetic side effects of ketamine are less common in the children. We report that a pediatric patient had experienced a profound paralytic ileus after ventilation tube insertion with ketamine anesthesia.
Key Words: ileus, ketamine
