Local anesthetics and analgesics

The flashcards below were created by user Aleksbaron on FreezingBlue Flashcards.

  1. Anesthetics with high potency?
    Bupivicaine and Tetracaine

    High pKa, moderate rate of onset but LONG duration
  2. Two theories of mode of action of anesthetics?
    1. Membrane expansion theory: lipophilic  anesthetics inciorporate themselves into membrane

    • 2. (Major) receptor mechanism: physical occulsion of na channel
    •                   a. allosterically mediated
    •                   b. distort local electrical field
  3. The blockade of Na conductance is the basis of local anesthetic action
  4. What is an additional contributing mechanism to blockade of Na conductance?
    Physiochemical interaction of the base form with membrane
  5. What is the differential nerve blockade by anesthetics?
    Autonomic loss first (that is why we give epi to constrict because autonomics shutdown)

  6. What are the factors contributing to the differential nerve blockade?
    • 1. fiber length
    • 2. use-dependent block
    • 3. peripheral nerve organization
    • 4. local anesthetic selectivity
  7. How to delay anesthetics rate of absorption?
    Vasoconstrictors slow

    Sympathomimetic agents are topically ineffective
  8. Distribution of local anesthetics?
    • 1.bind to plasma proteins
    • 2. Unbound diffuses to tissues freely
    • 3. Enter CNS and can cross placenta
    •              a. lido, prilo, etido Cat B
    •              b. Mepiv, Bupi Cat C
  9. Metabolism of local anesthetics?
    Esters by plasma cholinesterase

    Amides by hepatic oxidase system (lido T1/2 1.5-3.5hrs but Tetra is 25 minutes because it has an ester)

    Metabolite of prilocaine, articaine, benzocaine (O-toluidine) can cause methehemeglobinemia

    Lido has some metabolites too that are toxic
  10. Excretion of local anesthetics?

    Inversely to their protein binding

    Inversely to the pH of urin
  11. Cardivascular toxicity of local anesthetics?
    Lipophilic ones like etido and bupivacaine

    depress myocardial contractility

    note: locally do affect myogenic activity and autonomic tone

    lido no epi 3mg/kg 300mg max
  14. What is inside a carpule of anesthetic?
    • 1. Local anest
    • 2. Vasoconstrictor
    • 3. Metabisulfite (only if epi present)
