Local anesthetic agents

Anesthesia Care


Chloroprocaine (Nesacaine)



For regional anesthesia. Block conduction of pain impulses in specific area (parenteral). No loss of consciousness. Used for dental work, minor surgery, labor & delivery, diagnostic procedures, skin & mucous membrane (topical).SE: CNS excitation-seizures →RD → unconsciousness, HPT & cardio suppr, AR, can prolong labor, risk of fetal BC & CNS depression, spinal HA, UR. For local infiltration, peripheral nerve block, epidural anesthesia. Blocks more sensory than motor nerves. Little systemic toxicity. Onset: rapid 6-12 min, duration: short acting 45-60 min. For topical anesthesia only, rarely used for other due to

Ester Amide

Tetracaine (Pontocaine) Lidocaine (Xylocaine)


Mepivacaine (Carbocaine)

Amide Amide

Bupivacaine (Marcaine, Sensorcaine) Ropivacaine (Naropin)

systemic toxicity and addictive potential. Provides vasoconstriction. May cause severe↑HR & BP. Used primarily for nasal intubations & nasopharyngeal surgery. Onset: rapid, duration: intermediate acting. Onset: slower 7-10 min, duration: long acting. Topical/Spinal block, not FDA approved in peds. For topical anesthesia/local infiltration. IV regional, peripheral nerve block, spinal & epidural block. Blocks motor & sensory nerves equally. Onset: rapid 5-15 min, duration: intermediate/depends on the dose & additives: 45-180 min & longer. For local infiltration, peripheral nerve/epidural block. Does not cause vasodilation. Onset: rapid to intermediate 3-20 min, duration: intermediate acting 120-200 min. For local infiltration, peripheral nerve block, spinal & epidural block. Onset: slower 5-15 min, duration: long 3-10 hrs. For epidural block. Onset: intermediate to fast. Duration: long acting, not as long as bupivacaine.

Neuromuscular blocking agents
Paralytic Depolarizing agents

Anesthesia Care
Succinylcholine (Anectine) Muscle relaxant for surgeries, ideal for short procedures, intubation. Onset: rapid 30-60 sec, duration: short 3-5 min, no reversal agents available. SE: look for BC, myalgia, MH trigger. Route of elimination: pseudochlinesterase (plasma cholinesterase). AE: hyperkalemia. If rigidity&↑T (NMS): antidote: Dantrolene (Dantrium) to slow metabolic activity of muscles. Duration: intermediate 45 min. Route of elimination: Hofmann elimination (hepatorenal independent degradation occurring spontaneously within plasma at a normal body T and PH) SE: slight histamine release, CV stability. Duration: intermediate 40-60 min. Route of elimination: Hofmann elimination. SE: no histamine release, CV stability. Duration: intermediate 20-40 min. Route of elimination: Hepatic. SE: no histamine release, CV stability. Duration: intermediate/dose dependent 12-67 min. Route of elimination: hepatic. Onset rapid to intermediate. SE: histamine release, ↑pulmonary vascular resistance. Rare use. Duration: long 60-85 min. Route of elimination: renal. SE: no histamine release, vagolylic, TC. Rare use. Duration: long 100 min. Route of elimination: renal. SE: min to no histamine release, CV stability.

Atracurium (Tracrium)

Cis-atracurium (Nimbex) Vecuronium (Norcuron) Rocuronium (Zemuron)

Pancuronium (Pavulon) Doxacurium (Nuromax)

Reversal agents for nondepolarizing muscle relaxants
Anticholinesterase drugs

Anesthesia Care

Neostigmine (Prostigmin)

Physostigmine Pyridostigmine

To improve muscle tone in MG, in anesthesia to reverse effects of non-depolarizing muscle relaxants. For UR (from general anesthesia) Parasympathomimetic that acts as reversible acetylcholinesterase inhibitor. Strong muscarinic effects. Onset: 6-8 min, duration: 60 min, usual dose o.5-2.5 mg IV. SE: dysrhythmias BC> cardiac monitoring is essential.

Anticholinergic drugs

Atropine 2.0 mg IV

Glycopyrrolate (Robinul) 1.0 mg IV

General Inhalation Anesthetics

Anesthesia Care

Ocular SE: HA, eye brow pain, blurred vision, retinal detachment (rare). Anticholinesterase drugs stimulate muscarinic receptors leading to BC, excessive salivation & bronchoconstriction. Given to counteract the SE of anticholinesterase drugs. Atropine rare use for reversal, onset: rapid, duration: 40 min. SE: tachydysrhythmias common, may cause central cholinergic syndrome as drug crosses BBB. Onset: slower, duration: 80 min. SE: lower incidence of dysrhythmias, slow change in HR, does not cross BBB. Produces loss of consciousness & sensation, relaxed muscles, memory loss. For surgical anesthetic, diagnostic procedures, cardiological procedures, pain relief, muscle relaxation. SE: HPT, RD & cardiac depression, malignant hyperthermia (muscle rigidity,↑body T, up to 43° C (109.4° F), LT, aspiration of gastric contents, risk of toxicity to OR personnel.

Inhalation Anesthesia

Anesthesia Care
Malignant Hyperthermia is a complication of general anesthesia using Halothane can occur during induction or after. Signs: TC, dysrhythmias, muscle rigidity, v in O2 sats. Telemetry is essential to detect! For: along with inhalation anesthetics, induces & maintains anesthesia, causes amnesia, conscious SED, Ketamine used for children. Produce loss of consciousness & eliminates pain response. SE: RD& cardiac depression, HPT, bacterial infection, psychological reactions in children <15 & adults <65, hallucinations, dreams, mental confusion. Induction & maintenance of general anesthesia, SED for mechanically ventilated adults. Short acting. Is not analgesic>opioids (fentanyl) can be combined w propofol to alleviate pain.
