    At Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta we do use Ketamine on some of our sickle cell patients with pain. However, the Ketamine drip is managed exclusively by our inpatient Pain team (which is separate from the inpatient Sickle Cell team). I will reach out to them and see if they have any information I can share with you that is more specific.
