LOCAL ANAESTHESIA (LA): AN OVERVIEW

 




CONCLUSION:
Understanding the pharmacology of local anaesthetics enables the anaesthetist to predict the potency, speed of onset, duration of action and safety of a specific drug in a given clinical situation, this maximises the opportunity for safe and effective use of local anaesthesia in a wide variety of contexts. The review here illustrates general mechanism, chemistry and therapeutic uses as well as side effects of the local anaesthetic agents including properties and their usage to the future aspects (anaesthetics) and make aware about the types and benefits of local anaesthetic agents.
