Current Primary Outcome Measures
 (submitted: December 23, 2019)
  • Quick Inventory of Depressive Symptomatology Self Report 16-Item [ Time Frame: Over 4 inital infusions and maintance infusions (~2 years) ]
    The QIDS-SR16 is a self-report assessment used to evaluate depression severity in patients with a Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition, diagnosis of Major Depressive Episode. In total, there are 16 individual questions evaluating 9 DSM domains. The highest score is 27, indicating severe depression, while the lowest score is 0, which would suggest a complete absence of depressive symptoms.
  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder 7-item [ Time Frame: Over 4 inital infusions and maintance infusions (~2 years) ]
    The GAD-7 is a 7 item self-report assessment used to evaluate symptoms of anxiety. The scale ranges from 0 (not at all) to 3 (nearly every day). To total score ranges from 0 suggesting a lack anxiety symptoms to 21, indicating severe anxiety.
  • Snaith-Hamilton Pleasure Scale [ Time Frame: Over 4 inital infusions and maintance infusions (~2 years) ]
    The SHAPS assessment is a 14 item self report tool used to measure anhedonia. Each item can be have a response of 1 (Definitely agree), 2(Agree), 3(Disagree), and 4(definitely disagree). The total score ranges from 14 to 56, in which higher scores on the assessment indicate higher levels of anhedonia.
  • Sheehan Disability Scale [ Time Frame: Over 4 inital infusions and maintance infusions (~2 years) ]
    The SDS contains 3 items, each ranging between zero to ten. The SDS is a self-reported assessment of disability within the context of depression. The total score ranges from 0, indicating no impairment, to 30, indicating severe impairment.
  • Endicott Work Productivity Scale [ Time Frame: Over 4 inital infusions and maintance infusions (~2 years) ]
    The EWPS is a self report scale consisting of 25 items each ranging from 0 (high functioning) to 4 (low functioning). The total score ranges from 0 to 100, with 100 indicating extremely poor workplace productivity.

Clinician Administered Dissociative States Scale [ Time Frame: Over 4 inital infusions and maintance infusions (~2 years) ]
The CADSS is a 23-item assessment administered by a clinician in order to evaluate dissociative symptoms. Each item is evaluated on a scale from 0, suggesting no dissociative symptom, to 4, suggesting extreme dissociation. In total, patients can score between 0 to 92, indicating extreme dissociation.

Descriptive Information
Brief Title Chart Review of Patients Undergoing Ketamine Infusions
Official Title A Retrospective Chart Review of Patients Undergoing Ketamine Infusions at the Canadian Rapid Treatment Center of Excellence
Brief Summary The Canadian Rapid Treatment Center of Excellence (CRTCE) is a healthcare facility principally focused on providing best practices of intravenous ketamine treatment to adult patients suffering from mental health conditions. The center focuses specifically on treating individuals suffering from major depression disorder, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder as their primary diagnosis. Herein, this retrospective analysis aims to look at past data in order to further develop our understanding of ketamine in the use of psychiatry.
Detailed Description Not Provided
Study Type Observational
Study Design Observational Model: Ecologic or Community
Time Perspective: Retrospective
Target Follow-Up Duration Not Provided
Biospecimen Not Provided
Sampling Method Non-Probability Sample
Study Population The investigators aim to analyze data from June 2018 (clinic opening) to present. Patients must have a Diagnostic and Statistical Manual 5 (DSM-5) diagnosis of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), Bipolar Disorder (BD), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) as determined by a psychiatrist. Patients must currently be experiencing a major depressive episode (MDE) as defined by the DSM-5.
Condition
  • Major Depressive Disorder
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Intervention Drug: Ketamine Hydrochloride
Ketamine, a N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist has been used for general anesthesia since the 1970s, however, reports and trials by the end of the twentieth century and onward using subanesthetic doses suggested robust and rapid antidepressant and anti-suicidal effects. Ketamine is available as a 50/50 racemic mixture of enantiomers (S)-ketamine and (R)-ketamine.
Study Groups/Cohorts
