Amounts to be administered and administration route
For local nerve block, by subcutaneous injection.
Local anaesthetics may have systemic adverse effects as a result of the raised plasma concentrations which occur when the rate of absorption exceeds the rate of breakdown. Toxicity causes excitation of the central nervous system, which may be followed by systemic depression leading to coma. Convulsions may be controlled with Diazepam.
Horse meat: zero days.
Pharmacotherapeutic group: Lidocaine, combinations.
ATCvet code: QN01BB52
Lidocaine is a local anaesthetic of the amide type, used both by injection and for local application to mucous membranes.
Lidocaine has rapid onset of action when injected and spreads rapidly through surrounding tissues. The speed of onset and duration of action of Lidocaine may be increased by the addition of a vasoconstrictor.
Adrenaline is added to local anaesthetics, such as Lidocaine hydrochloride, to slow diffusion and limit absorption as it constricts arterioles and capillaries, so prolonging the duration of the effect and lessening the danger of toxicity.
