Brief Summary:
The purpose of the research is to see whether a low dose of ketamine, a medication used to reduce pain, enhances the effectiveness of a virtual reality video game, which is used as a form of distraction from pain during a painful burn care procedure.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Burn Behavioral: Virtual Reality Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This study is conducted in a hospital setting. It is a randomized controlled trial comparing the use of virtual reality distraction (VRD) and standard pain medications to the use of VRD, standard pain medications and a single low dose of ketamine as a means to reduce pain during a painful procedure in patients in the hospital.
