Q: Ketamine has all of the properties except 

A) dissociative anesthetic
B)  increase mean arterial pressure (MAP)
C) increase intracranial pressure (ICP)
D) cause reemergence phenomenon

Answer:  E

One of the reason Ketamine is still advocated by many in Rapid Sequence Intubation (RSI) because it has many good properties like dissociative anesthetic with good amnestic and sedative effects. It has good Hemodynamic profile and a bronchodilator. It should be use with caution in neuro patients.
