How to Play
HintAnswer
Cocaine class
Nerve selectivity: rapid firing, small diameter 'C' fibers and medium diameter, myelinated B sympathetic preganglionic fibers.
Short duration ester
Medium duration amide
Surface active ester
SE cont: All are vasodilators (except cocaine). Heart block, arrythmias, low BP. Can form metabolites that create hypersensitivity reactions.
Etidocaine class
Class P-kinetics: systemic absorption is proportional to vascularization, widely distributed in not locally injected.
Procaine class
Prilocaine class
Nerve selectivity: large diameter, slow firing, myelinated 'A' type motor neuron fibers
Benzocaine class
SE: similar to tetracaine
Long duration ester
MOA: State dependent blockage of voltage dependent Na channels, prevent depolarization and conduction of APs in excitable cells esp. neurons when localized next to neurons
HintAnswer
Long duration amide
Medium duration ester
Tetracaine class
Bupivacaine class
Class P-kinetics cont: Most bound by plasma PRO, which effects clinical effects and toxicity.
Class P-kinetics cont: Weak base which must be lipophilic to pass through cell membrane to internally block channels and hydrophilic to bind channel.
SE: similar to tetracaine. However more cardiotoxic (arrythmias and hypotension), may be irreversible. Tx with epi, atropine, and bretylium.
Mepivacaine class
Class P-kinetics: Similar in absorption & distribution and ionization to esters. Metabolism via CYP in liver (longer duration), liver function important in metabolism.
SE: Can also block NE --> vasoconstriction and CV toxicity (HTN, cerebral hemorrhage, arrhythmias, and MI's)
Lidocaine class
Class of P-kinetics cont: pH dependent (HH principles) ionization important. Hydrolyzed relatively rapidly via butyrylcholinesterase (except benzocaine which is topical only)
Ropivacaine class
SE: light headedness, sedation, restless, nystagmus, tonic-clonic convulsions (tx with sedative hypnotics). Resp and CV collapse. High [ ] may permanent damage nerves.
SE: metabolized to products which can cause methemoglobinemia (treat with methylene blue)
