Medical Practitioners from a variety of specialties have used local and regional anesthetics since 1948 for medical and surgical procedures because of their ability to reduce risks and the dangerous side effects associated with general anesthetics. Usually, the onset of local anesthesia is rapid but the duration of its action is short, which would require repeated administration in some procedures. Some of the most commonly used anesthetics in Physician offices and surgery centers today are Xylocaine (Lidocaine) and Marcaine (Bupivacaine). Other products available from Clint Pharmaceuticals used to promote local anesthesia include Carbocaine and Naropin (Ropivacaine).
Lidocaine (Xylocaine) has been used for minor surgeries and procedure since 1949. It is administered parenterally by injection, is fast acting, and produces temporary sensation loss.
Practitioners depend on injectable Lidocaine (Xylocaine) with Epi, which is available in Ampules, SDV's and MDV's, when administering local or regional anesthetic with epinephrine.
Injectable Marcaine® (Bupivacaine) is used by physicians as a local or regional anesthetic in pain management procedures and is available in Ampules, Single and Multi-dose vials.
Injectable Marcaine (Bupivicaine) with Epinephrine, used by Practitioners to reduce pain locally or on specific nerve pathways, is available in Ampules, SDV's, or MDV's.
