Example text

The development of vasovagal reactions after injections of any kind may cause hypotension, bradycardia, diaphoresis, pallor, nausea, and loss of consciousness. These adverse reactions may be misinterpreted by the patient and even the physician as allergic reactions [180]. A careful history from the patient describing the apparent reaction usually clarifies the cause. If there is still concern about the possibility of true allergy to local anesthetic, then the patient should be referred to an allergist for skin testing [181].

Early signs of toxicity, usually occurring at serum levels of about 3–4 mg mL for lidocaine, include circumoral numbness, lightheadedness, and tinnitus. As the serum concentration increases toward 8 mg/mL, tachycardia, tachypnea, confusion, disorientation, visual disturbance, muscular twitching, and cardiac depression may occur. At still higher serum levels above 8 mg/mL, unconsciousness and seizures may ensue. Complete cardiorespiratory arrest may occur between 10 and 20 mg/mL [155, 163, 164].

This topical anesthetic preparation must be applied under an occlusive dressing at least 60 min prior to the procedure to develop adequate local anesthesia [176]. Even after 60 min, the anesthesia may not be complete and the patient may still experience significant discomfort. Many physicians prefer to use their own customized formula, which they obtain from a compounding pharmacy. Frequently, the patient is given the topical anesthetic to be applied at home prior to arrival to the office or surgical center.
