Lidocaine and Dextrose (Lidocaine Hydrochloride) - Summary

 
 



SUMMARY

0.4% and 0.8% Lidocaine Hydrochloride and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP are sterile, nonpyrogenic solutions of lidocaine hydrochloride and 5% Dextrose Injection, USP for use in the management of ventricular arrhythmias. Each 100 mL contains lidocaine hydrochloride, anhydrous 400 mg (4 mg/mL) or 800 mg (8 mg/mL) and dextrose hydrous 5 g in water for injection. The osmolarity of the solutions is 282 and 311 mOsmol/liter (calc.) respectively. May contain hydrochloric acid and/or sodium hydroxide for pH adjustment. pH 4.0 (3.0 − 5.5). The solution contains no bacteriostatic, antimicrobial agent or added buffer (except for pH adjustment) and is intended only for use as a single-dose administration. When smaller doses are required, the unused portion should be discarded. Lidocaine administered intravenously is a cardiac antiarrhythmic agent.

Lidocaine Hydrochloride administered intravenously is specifically indicated in the acute management of (1) ventricular arrhythmias occurring during cardiac manipulation, such as cardiac surgery; and (2) life-threatening arrhythmias, particularly those which are ventricular in origin, such as occur during acute myocardial infarction.

Clinical Trials Related to Lidocaine and Dextrose (Lidocaine)

Comparison of the Total Dose and Efficacy of Two Lidocaine Concentrations Needed for Cutaneous Surgery Local Anesthesia [Completed]
The purpose of the study will be to demonstrate whether Mohs micrographic surgery can be performed with a lower total dose of local anesthesia (and greater patient safety) when using 0. 5% lidocaine with 1: 200,000 epinephrine versus 1% lidocaine with 1: 100,000 epinephrine.

Preemptive Analgesia for Postlaminectomy [Completed]
To relieve post laminectomy pain, we have tried intraoperative perineural injection of lidocaine right after the exposure in expecting that this would be preemptive analgesia by blocking the nerve transmission so that postoperative pain starts later and lighter.

Lidocaine Lubricant in Pediatric Urethral Catheterization [Completed]
In Emergency Departments (ED) across the nation there is renewed interest in finding ways to alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with many of the procedures that children must undergo. In a policy by the American Academy of Pediatrics, a nationally recognized advocate for children, physicians are urged to advocate for child-specific research in pain management and the effective use of pain medication to ensure compassionate and competent management of pain. (AAP Statement, 2001) Pediatric urethral catheterizations are one such procedure in which children experience significant pain.(11) In present care, children over 2 months of age do not routinely receive intervention for urethral catheterization related anxiety and pain, and, anecdotal reports suggest that most require physical restraint to complete the procedure. Lidocaine is an anesthetic agent that provides relief from pain during many commonly performed ED procedures. Intraurethral Lidocaine has been shown to decrease pain associated with urethral catheter placement in cystograms, however, Lidocaine is not routinely used for urethral catheterizations in the CHOA ED.

This study aims to investigate the potential use of Lidocaine as an anesthetic agent during urethral catheterization of children. Recently, two specific studies were performed investigating the use of Lidocaine to decrease discomfort associated with urethral catheterization. Using the strengths of both previously published studies, our study will use Lidocaine both topically and instilled into the urethra. Investigators plan to perform a prospective three-arm double-blinded randomized clinical trial investigating the effectiveness of Lidocaine jelly as a analgesic when used as a lubricant for urinary catheterization. Investigators aim to demonstrate that Lidocaine used as a lubricant anesthetic for urethral catheterization will provide a safe, time-efficient, and relatively easy way to decrease pediatric pain in the emergency department setting.

Efficacy and Safety Study of Lidocaine Vaginal Gel for Recurrent Dysmenorrhea (Painful Periods) [Active, not recruiting]
The purpose of this study is to determine whether lidocaine vaginal gel is safe and effective for preventing or reducing the severity of dysmenorrhea (painful menstrual periods) compared to placebo (inactive gel).

Lidocaine Supplement for Minimal Invasive Parathyroid Surgery [Completed]
Primary Objective:

1. To determine if the application of lidocaine to the airway will obtund or abolish the laryngeal reflexes. This in turn will lead to a quiescent controlled surgical field.
