1

What are the 3 parts of local anesthetic?

1. Aromatic Group
2. Intermediate Chain
3. Secondary or Tertiary Amine

2

Confers lipophilic properties:

Aromatic group

3

Supplies spatial separation between lipophilic and hydrophilic ends and connects them with an ester or amide linkage:

Intermediate chain

4

Affects pKa (& lips vs. water solubility) and influences speed of onset:

Secondary or tertiary amine

5

T/F: secondary/tertiary amines are bases:

T

6

How strongly the organic base portion of the L.A. molecule holds onto its proton (AKA acid dissociation constant):

pKa

7

High or low pKa:
weaker acid (stronger bases)
Hold proton more tightly
Remain positively charges and cross cell membranes poorly.
Slower onset.

High pKa

8

High or low pKa:
Shed proton more easily.
Become non-ionized "free bases".
Cross membranes more easily.

Low pKa

9

Which locals has a high pKa and slower onset?

1. Bupivacaine (Marcaine)

10

Dbl T/F:
LAs stabilize cell membranes.
LAs act mainly be promoting rapid Na+ influx.

T
F: LAs act mainly by inhibiting rapid Na+ influx.

11

T/F: LAs are unusual in that they lose their effect when absorbed into the blood stream.

T

12

How does an LA stop working (numbness goes away)?

Redistributed

13

Duration of action is based on _____ ______ not metabolic transformation (half-life).

Protein bonding

14

Half- life has a bearing on _____, not duration of action.

Toxicity

15

Local are all vasodilators except for ____.

Cocaine

16

Vasoconstrictors are needed to slow _____.

Redistribution

17

Which area for anesthesia takes the longest to develop and leaves first?

Pulpal anesthesia

18

Which lasts longer, nerve blocks or infiltration?

Nerve blocks

19

Which amides are metabolized in the blood?

Only Articaine (septocaine).
All others are metabolized in the liver.

20

Where are esters metabolized?

Cocaine = liver
Procaine (Novocaine) and Benzocaine = blood

21

Which LAs are excreted only in the kidneys, not as metabolites?

Mepivicaine (Carbocaine)
Bupivicaine (Marcaine)

22

Which LAs are excreted through the kidneys and as metabolites?

Lidocaine (Xylocaine)
Artisane (Septocaine)

23

Which 2 LA's have a rapid onset?

Mepivicaine (Carbocaine)
Lidocaine (Xylocaine)

24

Rate at which local is removed from the plasma:

1/2 life

25

List duration of action of locals, shortest to longest:

1. Mepivicaine (Carbocaine)
2. Lidocaine (Xylocaine)
3. Articaine (Septocaine)
4. Marcaine (Bupivicaine)

26

Which LA is not recommended in pedo or cognitively impaired adults?

Marcaine (Bupivicaine)

27

Accumulation of orthotoludine in the blood can produce this:

Methemoglobin.

28

Which two LAs can produce methemoglobin?

Prilocaine and Articaine (Septocaine)

29

T/F: Methemoglobin is methylated hemoglobin:

F: it is hemoglobin where the iron has been oxidized to the ferric (Fe3+) instead of ferrous (Fe2+) state.

30

T/F: Methemoglobin has poor O2 delivery to tissues:

T
