Brief Summary:
The objective of the current program of research will be to test whether intranasal ketamine treatment is more effective than placebo in reducing suicidal ideation in suicidal patients presenting for acute treatment in emergency department settings. Secondary objectives will test the effect of genotypic differences in the mu opioid receptor on efficacy of ketamine and the correlation of speech patterns and facial movement patterns with subjective reductions in suicidal ideation after ketamine treatment.

Ketamine in liquid form to be distributed nasally by a board-certified physician while the subject is already in the hospital for suicidal ideation.
Other Name: ketamine

0.2 mg / kg dose saline intranasal will be given in two separate doses on the day of hospital admission.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Ketamine effect on Suicidal Ideation and Depression. [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    To assess the acute efficacy and durability of effect over a 4 week time period of single dose of 0.2 mg/kg intranasal ketamine treatment on suicidal ideation and depression in individuals with acute suicidal ideation as measured by the Beck Scale for Suicidal Ideation (BSS) and the Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating Scale (MADRS)as compared to placebo.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Assessment of Role of Mu Opioid Receptor [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    To assess the role of specific mu opioid receptor genetic variants in prediction of response to ketamine to alleviate suicidal ideation.


Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Assessment of Changes of Biological Markers [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]
    To assess the changes in biological markers of suicide risk such as linguistic patterns, voice and facial movements after ketamine treatment compared to baseline.
