NO REFUND POLICY
HydraFuse has a NO REFUND policy for completed infusions. Results vary and cannot be guaranteed. Refunds will not be issued even in the event you do not see improvement in your symptoms or if your symptoms worsen.
I acknowledge that I have read and understand the information stated above.
24 HOUR CANCELLATION and “NO SHOW” FEE POLICY
Please provide our office with 24-hour notice to change or cancel an appointment. Clients who do not attend a scheduled appointment or do not provide 24-hour notice to change a scheduled appointment may be responsible for a $50.00 service fee. This fee must be paid on or before the next scheduled appointment.
After two missed or cancelled appointments without the appropriate 24-hour notice, you may be placed on a same day scheduling policy for your treatments, which would not allow you to schedule any appointments in advance.
Thank you for your understanding.

INFORMED CONSENT FOR KETAMINE INFUSION DISCLOSURE OF OFF-LABEL USE
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves drugs used in the United States for specific indications, routes of administration and dosages. A drug approved by the FDA undergoes a series of extensive drug trials to determine a drug both safe and effective for its indicated use. Postmarketing surveillance data is used to determine if an approved drug continues to be safe after approval--if not, the medication is taken off the market.
Since 1970, ketamine has maintained its FDA-approval as an anesthetic. When a drug is used "off-label",also known as experimental, it means the FDA- approved drug is being used for a disease not listed on the label, and/or in a dose or by a route not listed on the label. Physicians, based on their knowledge and on available current information, may use a drug for a use not indicated in the "approved" labeling if it seems reasonable or appropriate. This applies to the off-label use of ketamine for psychiatric and pain conditions.
1. PROCEDURE - KETAMINE INFUSION THERAPY
An intravenous line (IV) will be started in an extremity so you can receive ketamine. Your blood pressure, heart rate, heart rhythm and oxygen saturation will all be monitored throughout the infusion under the supervision of a physician.
2. RISKS/SIDE EFFECTS
Common risks include, but are not limited to, blood pressure changes needing treatment, changes or difficulty in breathing needing treatment or reactions to the medications used. Uncommon risks include, but are not limited to, unexpected or sometimes severe complications, injury to blood vessels, airway, dentition, convulsions, stroke or other brain damage, heart attack or other organ damage, aspiration, infection or death. Problems or complications may require admission to a hospital. Rarely do these complications occur.
We further reduce risk by ensuring you receive sub-anesthetic doses (low dose) of agent(s) and directly monitor and observe your status while employing any interventions necessary making complications unlikely to occur.
Risk of ketamine: Side effects normally depend on the dose and how quickly the injection is given. The dose being used is lower than anesthetic doses and will be given slowly over at least 40 minutes, longer for pain conditions. These side effects often go away on their own. Common side effects, greater than 1% and less than 10%:
• nausea and vomiting
• increased saliva production
• blurred vision
• increased heart rate and blood pressure during the infusion
• "dissociation" out of body experience during the infusion
• change in motor skills
These symptoms dissipate when the infusion is stopped. If they are severe, another ultra-rapid acting medication such as a sedative can be used to treat the symptoms. You should not drive the day of an infusion.
Uncommon side effects, greater than 0.1% and less than 1%:
• double vision
• pain and redness in the injection site -Increased pressure in the eye
• jerky arm movements resembling a seizure
Rare side effects, greater than 0.01% and less than 0.1%:
• allergic reaction
• irregular or slow heart rate
• low blood pressure
• cystitis of the bladder: inflammation, ulcers, and fibrosis
• Ketamine can cause various symptoms including but not limited to flashbacks, hallucinations, feelings of unhappiness, restlessness, anxiety, insomnia and disorientation.
• There is a potential risk of dosing error or unknown drug interaction that may require medical intervention including intubation (putting in a breathing tube), or hospitalization.
• The risk of venipuncture may include temporary discomfort from the needle stick, bruising, or infection.
• Fainting may also occur.
• Risk of discomfort in answering questionnaires about your mental health and drug and alcohol use.
• Risk of other medications interacting with ketamine. It is very important that you disclose all medications, both prescription and over the counter, that you are taking.
• Ketamine may not help your depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD or pain
Ketamine has been associated with a decrease in depression, bipolar, and PTSD symptoms with results lasting for days to weeks to months. There is no way to predict how any single person will respond to ketamine infusion therapy. These effects may not be long lasting and will most likely require further infusions.
4. Risk Management
You must report any unusual symptoms or side effects at once to the medical staff. On the day of the infusion, you should NOT engage in any of the following after the infusion:
• drinking alcohol or using drugs
• conducting business
• participating in activities which require you to rely on motor skills or memory
5. VOLUNTARY NATURE OF THE TREATMENT
You are free to choose to receive or not receive the ketamine infusion. Please tell the doctor if you do not wish to receive the infusion.
6. WITHDRAWAL OF TREATMENT
Your doctor has the right to stop the infusion at any time. They can stop the infusion with or without your consent for any reason.
