Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) is working with Warwick Clinical Trials Unit and Airedale NHS Foundation Trust to examine the effectiveness of Ketamine for those who have severe pain after a traumatic injury. The ambulance service currently uses Morphine, but evidence indicates that Ketamine works faster than Morphine. This trial compares which of these two drugs is more effective at managing pain after an injury. The findings from this study will provide the evidence base, to decide which pain drugs Yorkshire Ambulance Service paramedics will carry in the future.
