tetracaine uses

Tetracaine is an amino-ester class local anesthetic. It has been in use for a variety of purposes since the early 1930s, but its most common use today is as a topical ophthalmic anesthetic for short procedures on the surface of the eye, as well as the ears and nose. Spinal anesthesia is also another indication.

tetracaine mechanism of action

Tetracaine is an ester-type anesthetic and produces local anesthesia by blocking the sodium ion channels involved in the initiation and conduction of neuronal impulses. Tetracaine is rapidly hydrolyzed in the plasma; therefore, volume of distribution could not be determined.Customized packaging on demand
