Incidence of local anesthetic
systemic toxicity and postoperative neurologic symptoms associated with 12,668 ultrasound-guided nerve blocks: an analysis from a prospective clinical registry.
The crabs were exposed (immersed in clove oil) for 30 min to the anesthetic
The electric current made the prilocaine hydrochloride enter the body more effectively; the permeation of the anesthetic
through the mouth lining increased 12-fold.
The primary anesthetic
efficacy parameter in this study was the subjective evaluation of pain during access cavity preparation and pulp extirpation.
The idea is to bring the anesthetic
solution close to physiologic pH, which makes for a far less painful experience than injecting the acidic unbuffered solution.
agents share the property of being liquid at room temperature, but evaporating easily for administration by inhalation.
As shown in Figure 6,a marked matrix effect is observed when determining the same anesthetic
concentration in water and urine.
Five days after the referral of Case #2, Case #3 (see below) who was seen in the outpatient clinic had exactly the same symptoms and signs of Case #2 and was diagnosed as topical anesthetic
abuse from the history.
Virtually no transfer of the anesthetic
effect to the patient's partner has been reported, and prilocaine side effects have been eliminated.
Redheads require on average 19% MORE anesthetic
than women with dark hair.
Newer anesthesia gas machines contain plastic and elastomeric components that absorb volatile anesthetics
and then release residual vapor during subsequent anesthetic
Local and general anesthetic
agents are commonly used in pregnancy, especially for epidural or combined spinal epidural analgesia at delivery.
Zvara DA, Nelson JM, Brooker RF et al 1996 The importance of the postoperative anesthetic
visit: do repeated visits improve patient satisfaction or physician recognition?
Randomized Clinical Trial of Local Anesthetic
versus a Combination of Local Anesthetic
with Self-Hypnosis in the Management of Pediatric Procedure-Related Pain.
Cases of chondrolysis diagnosed in people a median of 8.5 months after they received a continuous intra-articular infusion of a local anesthetic
for postsurgical pain with an infusion pump have prompted the Food and Drug Administration to issue a statement recommending against this practice.
