This study will compare and determine the most ideal local anesthetic (LA) solution to activate a labor epidural: lidocaine, bupivacaine, or a combination of bupivacaine plus lidocaine.
Ophthalmological procedures such as cataract extraction can be carried out with a peribulbar block (PBB). The advantages of this anesthetic technique include a lower incidence of coughing,...
Mohs surgery is a very effective option in removing non-melanoma skin cancers, as the tissue being removed is analyzed the same day. If there are remnants of cancer cells in the tissue rem...
The purpose of this study is to compare the addition of dexmedetomidine to bupivacaine versus bupivacaine only in anterior QLblock(transincisional) , where the local anesthetic will be app...
Will the technique of adding lidocaine to bupivacaine fasten the onset of bupivacaine alone for infraclavicular brachial plexus block in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patient?
The primary objective was to study the effects of liposomal bupivacaine (LB) compared to bupivacaine HCL with lidocaine on postoperative day 1 pain scores.
Intravenous regional anesthesia (IVRA; Bier block) is commonly used to anesthetize an extremity for surgery. Limitations of the procedure include pain from the required tourniquet, the toxicity that c...
Dexmedetomidine (Dex), as an adjuvant, has been reported to prolong the duration of spinal analgesia when adding to local anesthetic. We hypothesized that Dex could enhance the efficiency of intrathec...
Hyperbaric bupivacaine (0.75% in dextrose) is used for spinal obstetric anesthesia. Occasional clusters of anesthetic failures occur in this setting, not readily attributable to clinical factors. We h...
The local anesthetic bupivacaine is a common analgesic adjuvant medication used in combination with opioids in intrathecal drug delivery systems (IDDSs). While the acute effects of spinal bupivacaine ...
A local anesthetic that is chemically related to BUPIVACAINE but pharmacologically related to LIDOCAINE. It is indicated for infiltration, nerve block, and epidural anesthesia. Mepivacaine is effective topically only in large doses and therefore should not be used by this route. (From AMA Drug Evaluations, 1994, p168)
A local anesthetic and cardiac depressant used as an antiarrhythmia agent. Its actions are more intense and its effects more prolonged than those of procaine but its duration of action is shorter than that of bupivacaine or prilocaine.
A widely used local anesthetic agent.
A local anesthetic with rapid onset and long action, similar to BUPIVACAINE.
A local anesthetic that is similar pharmacologically to LIDOCAINE. Currently, it is used most often for infiltration anesthesia in dentistry. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1992, p165)
