Local anesthetics function by blocking the generation and conduction of nerve impulses. The blocking is mostly done by increasing the threshold for electrical excitation in the nerve, by slowing the propagation of the nerve impulse and by reducing the rate of rise of the action potential. The effect and progression of anesthesia are mostly related to the diameter, myelination and conduction velocity of affected nerve fibers. The order in which the nerve loses its functionality is as follows: pain, temperature, touch, proprioception and skeletal muscle tone.
The common drugs in local anesthetics can be chemically classified into a) Ester-linked Local Anesthetics like Cocaine, Procaine, Chloroprocaine, Tetracaine, benzocaine and others. b) Amide-linked local anesthetics such as Lidocaine, Bupivacaine, dibucaine, prilocaine, ropivacaine and others.
