Blood test results after a road traffic collision

    So a few months ago I was involved in a car crash which left me with a broken knee and femur. I was given morphine and ketamine at the scene for pain relief and to help the paramedics/ fire birgade get me out of the car safely.

    When I got to the hospital a Garda was there to take a blood test, I got a letter a few days later saying there was nothing in my system.

    Fast forward to last week when I got a registered letter with my official blood test results stating that I had morphine in my system.

    This was obviously the morphine the paramedics give me but I am curious why the Ketamine didn't show up on the results?

    Is this not a tested for drug ?

    the blood test checks for benzos and opioids. ketamine doesn't fall into either class of drug.
