Factors such as rapid rise in aging population, rising prevalence of cardiovascular and respiratory system-related diseases, and rising number of emergency surgeries are driving the growth of the U.S. general anesthesia drugs market. However, side effects associated with ketamine usage (such as elevation in blood pressure and heart rate, amnesia, respiratory depression, and hallucinations), regulatory issues, and lower compliance rates in comparison with other anesthetic drugs are likely to restrain the growth of this market.
