The first step in the management of convulsions, as well as underventilation or apnea due to unintended subarachnoid injection of drug solution, consists of immediate attention to the maintenance of a patent airway and assisted or controlled ventilation with oxygen and a delivery system capable of permitting immediate positive airway pressure by mask.
When administering lidocaine hydrochloride or any potent medication by continuous intravenous infusion, it is advisable to use a precision volume control I. When appropriate, patients should be informed in advance that they may experience temporary loss of sensation and motor activity, usually in the lower half of the body following proper administration of epidural anesthesia. With central neural blockade these changes may be attributable to block of autonomic fibers, a direct depressant effect of the local anesthetic agent on various components of the cardiovascular system.
There is insufficient information to determine whether shorter infusion periods are not associated with these findings. It is not known whether this drug is excreted in human milk. In addition to blocking conduction in nerve axons in the peripheral nervous system, Lidocaine has important effects on the central nervous system and cardiovascular system.
How to store Lidocaine Keep this medicine out of the sight and reach of children. It should rarely be necessary to continue intravenous infusions of lidocaine for prolonged periods. Fetal heart rate should always be monitored during paracervical anesthesia.
Lower doses should be used in congestive cardiac failure and following cardiac surgery See 4. At concentrations of 1 to 4 mcg of free base per mL, 60 to 80 percent of lidocaine is protein bound. Should circulatory depression occur, vasopressors may be used. The actual volumes and concentrations to be used depend on a number of factors such as type and extent of surgical procedure, depth of anesthesia and degree of muscular relaxation required, duration of anesthesia required and the physical condition of the patient.
Nursing Mothers It is not known whether this drug is excreted in human milk. Failure to achieve adequate analgesia with recommended doses should arouse suspicion of intravascular or fetal intracranial injection. Contents of the pack and other information 1. Should convulsions persist despite adequate respiratory support, and if the status of the circulation permits, small increments of an ultra-short acting barbiturate such as thiopental or thiamylal or a benzodiazepine such as diazepam may be administered intravenously.
Allergic reactions are characterized by cutaneous lesions, urticaria, edema or anaphylactoid reactions. Successful outcome is dependent on early diagnosis, prompt discontinuance of the suspect triggering agent s and institution of treatment, including oxygen therapy, indicated supportive measures and dantrolene consult dantrolene sodium intravenous package insert before using.
Although the incidence of side effects with lidocaine is quite low, caution should be exercised when employing large volumes and concentrations, since the incidence of side effects is directly proportional to the total dose of local anesthetic agent injected. Marketing authorisation number s 9.
Prompt use of supportive measures combined with forced urinary excretion of the local anesthetic has been used successfully to manage this complication. The long-term significance of these observations is unknown. Solosec Solosec secnidazole is a nitroimidazole antimicrobial for use as a single-dose oral therapy in the Lidocaine solution for injection may be used to produce local numbness anaesthesia by injection of the solution into or around the area of operation.
Elevated lidocaine levels may persist in the newborn for at least 48 hours after delivery. Feeling faint or light headed. Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility: The deltoid muscle is the preferred site for IM injection.
