|Product name||Lidocaine HCl|
|Therap.Cat :||Lidocaine hydrochloride is 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.|
Lidocaine Hydrochloride is the hydrochloride salt from of lidocaine, an aminoethylamide and a prototypical member of the amide class anesthetics. Lidocaine interacts with voltage-gated Na+ channels in the nerve cell membrane and blocks the transient increase in permeability of excitable membranes to Na+. This prevents the generation and conduction of nerve impulses and produces a reversible loss of sensation.
