Active Comparator: Pain management without ketamine infusion
Pain management without ketamine infusion. No other restrictions on pain management or medications.
Other: Pain management
Experimental: Pain management with ketamine infusion
Pain management that includes a ketamine infusion. No other restrictions on pain management or medications.
The experimental group will receive a ketamine intravenous infusion, initiated at 0.2 mg/kg/hr within the first 12 to 24 hours on an inpatient admission for sickle cell pain crisis, and titrated per hospital policy by the inpatient pain service.
Other: Pain management
- Percentage reduction in grand mean opioid consumption from 0 to 72 hours [ Time Frame: baseline, 72 hours ]
- Percentage reduction in grand mean pain score using the 11-point visual analog scale [ Time Frame: baseline, 72 hours ]Using standard 11-point visual analog pain scale, ranging from 0 = no pain to 10 = worst pain imaginable.
- Time from inpatient admission to readiness for discharge [ Time Frame: Upon discharge from the hospital (an average of 1 week) ]
- 30-day hospital readmission rate [ Time Frame: 30 days from discharge ]
