DESCRIPTION

Lidocaine Hydrochloride Injection, USP is a sterile, nonpyrogenic solution of lidocaine hydrochloride

in water for injection for parenteral administration in various concentrations with characteristics as

follows:

Concentration

0.5% 1% 1.5% 2%

mg/mL lidocaine HCl (anhyd.)5

mg/mL sodium chloride

Multiple-dose vials contain 0.1% of methylparaben added as preservative. May contain sodium

hydroxide and/or hydrochloric acid for pH adjustment. The pH is 6.5 (5.0 to 7.0). See HOW SUPPLIED

section for various sizes and strengths.

Lidocaine is a local anesthetic of the amide type.

Lidocaine Hydrochloride, USP is chemically designated 2-(diethylamino)-N-(2,6-dimethylphenyl)-

acetamide monohydrochloride monohydrate, a white powder freely soluble in water. The molecular

weight is 288.82. It has the following structural formula:

The semi-rigid vial used for the plastic vials is fabricated from a specially formulated polyolefin. It is a

copolymer of ethylene and propylene. The safety of the plastic has been confirmed by tests in animals

according to USP biological standards for plastic containers. The container requires no vapor barrier to

maintain the proper drug concentration.

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

Mechanism of action: Lidocaine stabilizes the neuronal membrane by inhibiting the ionic fluxes

required for the initiation and conduction of impulses, thereby effecting local anesthetic action.

Hemodynamics: Excessive blood levels may cause changes in cardiac output, total peripheral

resistance, and mean arterial pressure. With central neural blockade these changes may be attributable to

block of autonomic fibers, a direct depressant effect of the local anesthetic agent on various

components of the cardiovascular system and/or the beta-adrenergic receptor stimulating action of

epinephrine when present. The net effect is normally a modest hypotension when the recommended

dosages are not exceeded.

Pharmacokinetics and metabolism: Information derived from diverse formulations, concentrations

and usages reveals that lidocaine is completely absorbed following parenteral administration, its rate of

absorption depending, for example, upon various factors such as the site of administration and the

presence or absence of a vasoconstrictor agent. Except for intravascular administration, the highest

blood levels are obtained following intercostal nerve block and the lowest after subcutaneous

administration.

The plasma binding of lidocaine is dependent on drug concentration, and the fraction bound decreases

with increasing concentration. At concentrations of 1 to 4 mcg of free base per mL, 60 to 80 percent of

lidocaine is protein bound. Binding is also dependent on the plasma concentration of the alpha-1-acid

glycoprotein.

Lidocaine crosses the blood-brain and placental barriers, presumably by passive diffusion.

Lidocaine is metabolized rapidly by the liver, and metabolites and unchanged drug are excreted by the

kidneys. Biotransformation includes oxidative N-dealkylation, ring hydroxylation, cleavage of the amide

linkage, and conjugation. N-dealkylation, a major pathway of biotransformation, yields the metabolites

monoethylglycinexylidide and glycinexylidide. The pharmacological/toxicological actions of these

metabolites are similar to, but less potent than, those of lidocaine. Approximately 90% of lidocaine

administered is excreted in the form of various metabolites, and less than 10% is excreted unchanged.

The primary metabolite in urine is a conjugate of 4-hydroxy-2, 6-dimethylaniline.

The elimination half-life of lidocaine following an intravenous bolus injection is typically 1.5 to 2.0

hours. Because of the rapid rate at which lidocaine is metabolized, any condition that affects liver

function may alter lidocaine kinetics. The half-life may be prolonged two-fold or more in patients with

liver dysfunction. Renal dysfunction does not affect lidocaine kinetics but may increase the

accumulation of metabolites.

Factors such as acidosis and the use of CNS stimulants and depressants affect the CNS levels of

lidocaine required to produce overt systemic effects. Objective adverse manifestations become

increasingly apparent with increasing venous plasma levels above 6.0 mcg free base per mL. In the

rhesus monkey arterial blood levels of 18-21 mcg/mL have been shown to be threshold for convulsive

activity.

INDICATIONS AND USAGE

Lidocaine Hydrochloride Injection, USP is indicated for production of local or regional anesthesia by

infiltration techniques such as percutaneous injection and intravenous regional anesthesia by peripheral

nerve block techniques such as brachial plexus and intercostal and by central neural techniques such as

lumbar and caudal epidural blocks, when the accepted procedures for these techniques as described in

standard textbooks are observed.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Lidocaine is contraindicated in patients with a known history of hypersensitivity to local anesthetics of

the amide type.

WARNINGS

LIDOCAINE HYDROCHLORIDE INJECTION, FOR INFILTRATION AND NERVE BLOCK,

SHOULD BE EMPLOYED ONLY BY CLINICIANS WHO ARE WELL VERSED IN DIAGNOSIS

AND MANAGEMENT OF DOSE-RELATED TOXICITY AND OTHER ACUTE EMERGENCIES

THAT MIGHT ARISE FROM THE BLOCK TO BE EMPLOYED AND THEN ONLY AFTER

ENSURING THE IMMEDIATE AVAILABILITY OF OXYGEN, OTHER RESUSCITATIVE

DRUGS, CARDIOPULMONARY EQUIPMENT, AND THE PERSONNEL NEEDED FOR PROPER

MANAGEMENT OF TOXIC REACTIONS AND RELATED EMERGENCIES (See also ADVERSE

REACTIONS and PRECAUTIONS). DELAY IN PROPER MANAGEMENT OF DOSE-RELATED

TOXICITY, UNDERVENTILATION FROM ANY CAUSE AND/OR ALTERED SENSITIVITY

MAY LEAD TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF ACIDOSIS, CARDIAC ARREST AND, POSSIBLY,

DEATH.

Intra-articular infusions of local anesthetics following arthroscopic and other surgical procedures is an

unapproved use, and there have been post-marketing reports of chondrolysis in patients receiving such

infusions. The majority of reported cases of chondrolysis have involved the shoulder joint; cases of

gleno-humeral chondrolysis have been described in pediatric and adult patients following intra-articular

infusions of local anesthetics with and without epinephrine for periods of 48 to 72 hours. There is

insufficient information to determine whether shorter infusion periods are not associated with these

findings. The time of onset of symptoms, such as joint pain, stiffness and loss of motion can be variable,

but may begin as early as the 2nd month after surgery. Currently, there is no effective treatment for

chondrolysis; patients who experienced chondrolysis have required additional diagnostic and

therapeutic procedures and some required arthroplasty or shoulder replacement.

To avoid intravascular injection, aspiration should be performed before the local anesthetic solution is

injected. The needle must be repositioned until no return of blood can be elicited by aspiration. Note,

however, that the absence of blood in the syringe does not guarantee that intravascular injection has

been avoided.

Local anesthetic solutions containing antimicrobial preservatives (e.g., methylparaben) should not be

used for epidural or spinal anesthesia because the safety of these agents has not been established with

regard to intrathecal injection, either intentional or accidental.

PRECAUTIONSGeneral:

The safety and effectiveness of lidocaine depend on proper dosage, correct technique, adequate

precautions, and readiness for emergencies. Standard textbooks should be consulted for specific

techniques and precautions for various regional anesthetic procedures.

Resuscitative equipment, oxygen, and other resuscitative drugs should be available for immediate use.

(See WARNINGS and ADVERSE REACTIONS). The lowest dosage that results in effective

anesthesia should be used to avoid high plasma levels and serious adverse effects. Syringe aspirations

should also be performed before and during each supplemental injection when using indwelling catheter

techniques. During the administration of epidural anesthesia, it is recommended that a test dose be

administered initially and that the patient be monitored for central nervous system toxicity and

cardiovascular toxicity, as well as for signs of unintended intrathecal administration before proceeding.

When clinical conditions permit, consideration should be given to employing local anesthetic solutions

that contain epinephrine for the test dose because circulatory changes compatible with epinephrine may

also serve as a warning sign of unintended intravascular injection. An intravascular injection is still

possible even if aspirations for blood are negative. Repeated doses of lidocaine may cause significant

increases in blood levels with each repeated dose because of slow accumulation of the drug or its

metabolites. Tolerance to elevated blood levels varies with the status of the patient. Debilitated, elderly

patients, acutely ill patients and children should be given reduced doses commensurate with their age

and physical condition. Lidocaine should also be used with caution in patients with severe shock or

heart block. Lumbar and caudal epidural anesthesia should be used with extreme caution in persons with

the following conditions: existing neurological disease, spinal deformities, septicemia and severe

hypertension.

Local anesthetic solutions containing a vasoconstrictor should be used cautiously and in carefully

circumscribed quantities in areas of the body supplied by end arteries or having otherwise

compromised blood supply. Patients with peripheral vascular disease and those with hypertensive

vascular disease may exhibit exaggerated vasoconstrictor response. Ischemic injury or necrosis may

result. Preparations containing a vasoconstrictor should be used with caution in patients during or

following the administration of potent general anesthetic agents, since cardiac arrhythmias may occur

under such conditions.

Careful and constant monitoring of cardiovascular and respiratory (adequacy of ventilation) vital signs

and the patient’s state of consciousness should be accomplished after each local anesthetic injection. It

should be kept in mind at such times that restlessness, anxiety, tinnitus, dizziness, blurred vision,

tremors, depression or drowsiness may be early warning signs of central nervous system toxicity.

Since amide-type local anesthetics are metabolized by the liver, lidocaine should be used with caution

in patients with hepatic disease. Patients with severe hepatic disease, because of their inability to

metabolize local anesthetics normally, are at greater risk of developing toxic plasma concentrations.

Lidocaine should also be used with caution in patients with impaired cardiovascular function since they

may be less able to compensate for functional changes associated with the prolongation of A-V

conduction produced by these drugs. Many drugs used during the conduct of anesthesia are considered

potential triggering agents for familial malignant hyperthermia. Since it is not known whether amide-type

local anesthetics may trigger this reaction and since the need for supplemental general anesthesia cannot

be predicted in advance, it is suggested that a standard protocol for the management of malignant

hyperthermia should be available. Early unexplained signs of tachycardia, tachypnea, labile blood

pressure and metabolic acidosis may precede temperature elevation. Successful outcome is dependent

on early diagnosis, prompt discontinuance of the suspect triggering agent(s) and institution of treatment,

including oxygen therapy, indicated supportive measures and dantrolene (consult dantrolene sodium

intravenous package insert before using).

Proper tourniquet technique, as described in publications and standard textbooks, is essential in the

performance of intravenous regional anesthesia. Solutions containing epinephrine or other

vasoconstrictors should not be used for this technique.

Lidocaine should be used with caution in persons with known drug sensitivities. Patients allergic to

para-aminobenzoic acid derivatives (procaine, tetracaine, benzocaine, etc.) have not shown cross

sensitivity to lidocaine.

Use in the Head and Neck Area: Small doses of local anesthetics injected into the head and neck area,

including retrobulbar, dental and stellate ganglion blocks, may produce adverse reactions similar to

systemic toxicity seen with unintentional intravascular injections of larger doses. Confusion,

convulsions, respiratory depression and/or respiratory arrest and cardiovascular stimulation or

depression have been reported. These reactions may be due to intra-arterial injections of the local

anesthetic with retrograde flow to the cerebral circulation. Patients receiving these blocks should have

their circulation and respiration monitored and be constantly observed. Resuscitative equipment and

personnel for treating adverse reactions should be immediately available. Dosage recommendations

should not be exceeded. (See DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION).

Information for Patients:

When appropriate, patients should be informed in advance that they may experience temporary loss of

sensation and motor activity, usually in the lower half of the body following proper administration of

epidural anesthesia.

Clinically Significant Drug Interactions:

The administration of local anesthetic solutions containing epinephrine or norepinephrine to patients

receiving monoamine oxidase inhibitors or tricyclic antidepressants may produce severe prolonged

hypertension.

Phenothiazines and butyrophenones may reduce or reverse the pressor effect of epinephrine.

Concurrent use of these agents should generally be avoided. In situations when concurrent therapy is

necessary, careful patient monitoring is essential.

Concurrent administration of vasopressor drugs (for the treatment of hypotension related to obstetric

blocks) and ergot-type oxytoxic drugs may cause severe persistent hypertension or cerebrovascular

accidents.

Drug Laboratory Test Interactions:

The intramuscular injection of lidocaine may result in an increase in creatine phosphokinase levels.

Thus, the use of this enzyme determination without isoenzyme separation as a diagnostic test for the

presence of acute myocardial infarction may be compromised by the intramuscular injection of

lidocaine.

Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility:

Studies of lidocaine in animals to evaluate the carcinogenic and mutagenic potential or the effect on

fertility have not been conducted.

Pregnancy:

Teratogenic Effects. Pregnancy Category B. Reproduction studies have been performed in rats at doses

up to 6.6 times the human dose and have revealed no evidence of harm to the fetus caused by lidocaine.

There are, however, no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Animal reproduction

studies are not always predictive of human response. General consideration should be given to this fact

before administering lidocaine to women of childbearing potential, especially during early pregnancy

when maximum organogenesis takes place.

Labor and Delivery:

Local anesthetics rapidly cross the placenta and when used for epidural, paracervical, pudendal or

caudal block anesthesia, can cause varying degrees of maternal, fetal and neonatal toxicity (See

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY—Pharmacokinetics). The potential for toxicity depends upon the

procedure performed, the type and amount of drug used, and the technique of drug administration.

Adverse reactions in the parturient, fetus and neonate involve alterations of the central nervous system

peripheral vascular tone and cardiac function.

Maternal hypotension has resulted from regional anesthesia. Local anesthetics produce vasodilation by

blocking sympathetic nerves. Elevating the patient’s legs and positioning her on her left side will help

prevent decreases in blood pressure. The fetal heart rate also should be monitored continuously, and

electronic fetal monitoring is highly advisable.

Epidural, spinal, paracervical, or pudendal anesthesia may alter the forces of parturition through

changes in uterine contractility or maternal expulsive efforts. In one study, paracervical block

anesthesia was associated with a decrease in the mean duration of first stage labor and facilitation of

cervical dilation. However, spinal and epidural anesthesia have also been reported to prolong the

second stage of labor by removing the parturient’s reflex urge to bear down or by interfering with

motor function. The use of obstetrical anesthesia may increase the need for forceps assistance.

The use of some local anesthetic drug products during labor and delivery may be followed by

diminished muscle strength and tone for the first day or two of life. The long-term significance of these

observations is unknown. Fetal bradycardia may occur in 20 to 30 percent of patients receiving

paracervical nerve block anesthesia with the amide-type local anesthetics and may be associated with

fetal acidosis. Fetal heart rate should always be monitored during paracervical anesthesia. The

physician should weigh the possible advantages against risks when considering paracervical block in

prematurity, toxemia of pregnancy and fetal distress. Careful adherence to recommended dosage is of

the utmost importance in obstetrical paracervical block. Failure to achieve adequate analgesia with

recommended doses should arouse suspicion of intravascular or fetal intracranial injection. Cases

compatible with unintended fetal intracranial injection of local anesthetic solution have been reported

following intended paracervical or pudendal block or both. Babies so affected present with unexplained

neonatal depression at birth, which correlates with high local anesthetic serum levels, and often

manifest seizures within six hours. Prompt use of supportive measures combined with forced urinary

excretion of the local anesthetic has been used successfully to manage this complication.

Case reports of maternal convulsions and cardiovascular collapse following use of some local

anesthetics for paracervical block in early pregnancy (as anesthesia for elective abortion) suggest that

systemic absorption under these circumstances may be rapid. The recommended maximum dose of each

drug should not be exceeded. Injection should be made slowly and with frequent aspiration. Allow a 5-

minute interval between sides.

Nursing Mothers:

It is not known whether this drug is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human

milk, caution should be exercised when lidocaine is administered to a nursing woman.

Pediatric Use:

Dosages in pediatric patients should be reduced, commensurate with age, body weight and physical

condition. See DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION.

ADVERSE REACTIONS

Systemic: Adverse experiences following the administration of lidocaine are similar in nature to those

observed with other amide local anesthetic agents. These adverse experiences are, in general, dose-

related and may result from high plasma levels caused by excessive dosage, rapid absorption or

inadvertent intravascular injection, or may result from a hypersensitivity, idiosyncrasy or diminished

tolerance on the part of the patient. Serious adverse experiences are generally systemic in nature. The

following types are those most commonly reported:

Central Nervous System: CNS manifestations are excitatory and/or depressant and may be

characterized by lightheadedness, nervousness, apprehension, euphoria, confusion, dizziness,

drowsiness, tinnitus, blurred or double vision, vomiting, sensations of heat, cold or numbness,

twitching, tremors, convulsions, unconsciousness, respiratory depression and arrest. The excitatory

manifestations may be very brief or may not occur at all, in which case the first manifestation of toxicity

may be drowsiness merging into unconsciousness and respiratory arrest.

Drowsiness following the administration of lidocaine is usually an early sign of a high blood level of

the drug and may occur as a consequence of rapid absorption.

Cardiovascular System: Cardiovascular manifestations are usually depressant and are characterized by

bradycardia, hypotension, and cardiovascular collapse, which may lead to cardiac arrest.

Allergic: Allergic reactions are characterized by cutaneous lesions, urticaria, edema or anaphylactoid

reactions. Allergic reactions may occur as a result of sensitivity either to local anesthetic agents or to

the methylparaben used as a preservative in multiple dose vials. Allergic reactions as a result of

sensitivity to lidocaine are extremely rare and, if they occur, should be managed by conventional means.

The detection of sensitivity by skin testing is of doubtful value.

Neurologic: The incidences of adverse reactions associated with the use of local anesthetics may be

related to the total dose of local anesthetic administered and are also dependent upon the particular drug

used, the route of administration and the physical status of the patient. In a prospective review of 10,440

patients who received lidocaine for spinal anesthesia, the incidences of adverse reactions were

reported to be about 3 percent each for positional headaches, hypotension and backache; 2 percent for

shivering; and less than 1 percent each for peripheral nerve symptoms, nausea, respiratory inadequacy

and double vision. Many of these observations may be related to local anesthetic techniques, with or

without a contribution from the local anesthetic.

In the practice of caudal or lumbar epidural block, occasional unintentional penetration of the

subarachnoid space by the catheter may occur. Subsequent adverse effects may depend partially on the

amount of drug administered subdurally.

These may include spinal block of varying magnitude (including total spinal block), hypotension

secondary to spinal block, loss of bladder and bowel control, and loss of perineal sensation and sexual

function. Persistent motor, sensory and/or autonomic (sphincter control) deficit of some lower spinal

segments with slow recovery (several months) or incomplete recovery have been reported in rare

instances when caudal or lumbar epidural block has been attempted. Backache and headache have also

been noted following use of these anesthetic procedures.

There have been reported cases of permanent injury to extraocular muscles requiring surgical repair

following retrobulbar administration.

OVERDOSAGE

Acute emergencies from local anesthetics are generally related to high plasma levels encountered

during therapeutic use of local anesthetics or to unintended subarachnoid injection of local anesthetic

solution (see ADVERSE REACTIONS, WARNINGS and PRECAUTIONS).

Management of Local Anesthetic Emergencies: The first consideration is prevention, best

accomplished by careful monitoring of cardiovascular and respiratory vital signs and the patient’s state

of consciousness after each local anesthetic injection. At the first sign of change, oxygen should be

administered.

The first step in the management of convulsions, as well as underventilation or apnea due to unintended

subarachnoid injection of drug solution, consists of immediate attention to the maintenance of a patent

airway and assisted or controlled ventilation with oxygen and a delivery system capable of permitting

immediate positive airway pressure by mask. Immediately after the institution of these ventilatory

measures, the adequacy of the circulation should be evaluated, keeping in mind that drugs used to treat

convulsions sometimes depress the circulation when administered intravenously. Should convulsions

persist despite adequate respiratory support, and if the status of the circulation permits, small increments

of an ultra-short acting barbiturate (such as thiopental or thiamylal) or a benzodiazepine (such as

diazepam) may be administered intravenously. The clinician should be familiar, prior to use of local

anesthetics, with these anticonvulsant drugs. Supportive treatment of circulatory depression may require

administration of intravenous fluids and, when appropriate, a vasopressor as directed by the clinical

situation (e.g., ephedrine).

If not treated immediately, both convulsions and cardiovascular depression can result in hypoxia,

acidosis, bradycardia, arrhythmias and cardiac arrest. Underventilation or apnea due to unintentional

subarachnoid injection of local anesthetic solution may produce these same signs and also lead to

cardiac arrest if ventilatory support is not instituted. If cardiac arrest should occur standard

cardiopulmonary resuscitative measures should be instituted.

Endotracheal intubation, employing drugs and techniques familiar to the clinician, may be indicated, after

initial administration of oxygen by mask, if difficulty is encountered in the maintenance of a patent

airway or if prolonged ventilatory support (assisted or controlled) is indicated.

Dialysis is of negligible value in the treatment of acute overdosage with lidocaine.

The oral LD of lidocaine HCl in non-fasted female rats is 459 (346−773) mg/kg (as the salt) and 214

(159−324) mg/kg (as the salt) in fasted female rats.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

Table 1 (Recommended Dosages) summarizes the recommended volumes and concentrations of

Lidocaine Hydrochloride Injection, USP for various types of anesthetic procedures. The dosages

suggested in this table are for normal healthy adults and refer to the use of epinephrine-free solutions.

When larger volumes are required only solutions containing epinephrine should be used, except in

those cases where vasopressor drugs may be contraindicated.

There have been adverse event reports of chondrolysis in patients receiving intra-articular infusions of

local anesthetics following arthroscopic and other surgical procedures. Lidocaine is not approved for

this use (see WARNINGS and DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION).

These recommended doses serve only as a guide to the amount of anesthetic required for most routine

procedures. The actual volumes and concentrations to be used depend on a number of factors such as

type and extent of surgical procedure, depth of anesthesia and degree of muscular relaxation required,

duration of anesthesia required, and the physical condition of the patient. In all cases the lowest

concentration and smallest dose that will produce the desired result should be given. Dosages should

be reduced for children and for elderly and debilitated patients and patients with cardiac and/or liver

disease.

The onset of anesthesia, the duration of anesthesia and the degree of muscular relaxation are

proportional to the volume and concentration (i.e., total dose) of local anesthetic used. Thus, an increase

in volume and concentration of Lidocaine Hydrochloride Injection will decrease the onset of

anesthesia, prolong the duration of anesthesia, provide a greater degree of muscular relaxation and

increase the segmental spread of anesthesia. However, increasing the volume and concentration of

Lidocaine Hydrochloride Injection may result in a more profound fall in blood pressure when used in

epidural anesthesia. Although the incidence of side effects with lidocaine is quite low, caution should

be exercised when employing large volumes and concentrations, since the incidence of side effects is

directly proportional to the total dose of local anesthetic agent injected.

For intravenous regional anesthesia, only the 50 mL single-dose vial containing 0.5% Lidocaine

Hydrochloride Injection, USP should be used.

Epidural Anesthesia

For epidural anesthesia, only the following available specific products of Lidocaine Hydrochloride

Injection by Hospira are recommended:

1%. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 30 mL single-dose teartop vials

1.5%. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 20 mL single-dose ampuls

2%. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 10 mL single-dose ampuls

Although these solutions are intended specifically for epidural anesthesia, they may also be used for

infiltration and peripheral nerve block provided they are employed as single dose units. These solutions

contain no bacteriostatic agent. In epidural anesthesia, the dosage varies with the number of dermatomes

to be anesthetized (generally 2−3 mL of the indicated concentration per dermatome).

Caudal and Lumbar Epidural Block: As a precaution against the adverse experiences sometimes

observed following unintentional penetration of the subarachnoid space, a test dose such as 2−3 mL of

1.5% lidocaine hydrochloride should be administered at least 5 minutes prior to injecting the total

volume required for a lumbar or caudal epidural block. The test dose should be repeated if the patient is

moved in a manner that may have displaced the catheter. Epinephrine, if contained in the test dose (10−15

mcg have been suggested), may serve as a warning of unintentional intravascular injection. If injected

into a blood vessel, this amount of epinephrine is likely to produce a transient "epinephrine response"

within 45 seconds, consisting of an increase in heart rate and systolic blood pressure, circumoral

pallor, palpitations and nervousness in the unsedated patient. The sedated patient may exhibit only a

pulse rate increase of 20 or more beats per minute for 15 or more seconds. Patients on beta-blockers

may not manifest changes in heart rate, but blood pressure monitoring can detect an evanescent rise in

systolic blood pressure. Adequate time should be allowed for onset of anesthesia after administration

of each test dose. The rapid injection of a large volume of Lidocaine Hydrochloride Injection through

the catheter should be avoided, and, when feasible, fractional doses should be administered.

In the event of the known injection of a large volume of local anesthetic solutions into the subarachnoid

space, after suitable resuscitation and if the catheter is in place, consider attempting the recovery of

drug by draining a moderate amount of cerebrospinal fluid (such as 10 mL) through the epidural

catheter.

Maximum Recommended Dosages

NOTE: The products accompanying this insert do not contain epinephrine.

Adults: For normal healthy adults, the individual maximum recommended dose of lidocaine HCl with

epinephrine should not exceed 7 mg/kg (3.5 mg/lb) of body weight and in general it is recommended that

the maximum total dose not exceed 500 mg. When used without epinephrine, the maximum individual

dose should not exceed 4.5 mg/kg (2 mg/lb) of body weight and in general it is recommended that the

maximum total dose does not exceed 300 mg. For continuous epidural or caudal anesthesia, the

maximum recommended dosage should not be administered at intervals of less than 90 minutes. When

continuous lumbar or caudal epidural anesthesia is used for non-obstetrical procedures, more drug may

be administered if required to produce adequate anesthesia.

The maximum recommended dose per 90 minute period of lidocaine hydrochloride for paracervical

block in obstetrical patients and non-obstetrical patients is 200 mg total. One-half of the total dose is

usually administered to each side. Inject slowly five minutes between sides. (See also discussion of

paracervical block in PRECAUTIONS).

For intravenous regional anesthesia, the dose administered should not exceed 4 mg/kg in adults.

Children: It is difficult to recommend a maximum dose of any drug for children, since this varies as a

function of age and weight. For children over 3 years of age who have a normal lean body mass and

normal body development, the maximum dose is determined by the child’s age and weight. For example,

in a child of 5 years weighing 50 lbs., the dose of lidocaine HCl should not exceed 75 — 100 mg (1.5

— 2 mg/lb). The use of even more dilute solutions (i.e., 0.25 — 0.5%) and total dosages not to exceed 3

mg/kg (1.4 mg/lb) are recommended for induction of intravenous regional anesthesia in children.

In order to guard against systemic toxicity, the lowest effective concentration and lowest effective dose

should be used at all times. In some cases it will be necessary to dilute available concentrations with

0.9% sodium chloride injection in order to obtain the required final concentration.

Parenteral drug products should be inspected visually for particulate matter and discoloration prior to

administration whenever the solution and container permit. Solutions that are discolored and/or contain

particulate matter should not be used.

Sterilization, Storage and Technical Procedures: Disinfecting agents containing heavy metals, which

cause release of respective ions (mercury, zinc, copper, etc.) should not be used for skin or mucous

membrane disinfection as they have been related to incidence of swelling and edema. When chemical

disinfection of multi-dose vials is desired, either isopropyl alcohol (91%) or 70% ethyl alcohol is

recommended. Many commercially available brands of rubbing alcohol, as well as solutions of ethyl

alcohol not of USP grade, contain denaturants which are injurious to rubber and, therefore, are not to be

used. It is recommended that chemical disinfection be accomplished by wiping the vial stopper

thoroughly with cotton or gauze that has been moistened with the recommended alcohol just prior to

use.

SODIUM CHLORIDE

INJECTION, USP, 0.9%

DESCRIPTION

Sodium Chloride Injection, USP is a sterile, nonpyrogenic, isotonic solution of sodium chloride 0.9%

(9mg/mL) in Water for Injection containing no antimicrobial agent or other added substance. The pH is

between 4.5 and 7.0. Its chloride and sodium ion concentrates are approximately 0.154 mEq of each per

milliliter and its calculated osmolality is 0.308 milliosmols per mL.

Sodium chloride occurs as colorless cubic crystals or white crystalline powder and has a saline taste.

Sodium Chloride is freely soluble in water. It is soluble in glycerin and slightly soluble in alcohol.

The empirical formula for sodium chloride is NaCl, and the molecular weight is 58.44.

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

Sodium chloride comprises over 90% of the inorganic constituents of the blood serum. Sodium

chloride in water dissociates to provide sodium (Na+) and (Cl-) ions. These ions are normal

constituents of the body fluids (principally extracellular) and are essential for maintaining electrolyte

balance. The small volume of fluid and amount of sodium chloride provided by Sodium Chloride

Injection, USP, 0.9% when used only as a vehicle for parenteral injection of drugs, is unlikely to exert a

significant effect on fluid and electrolyte balance except possibly in very small infants.

INDICATIONS AND USAGE

Sodium Chloride Injection is used to flush intravascular catheters or as a sterile, isontonic single dose

vehicle, solvent, or diluent for substances to administered intravenously,k intramuscularly or sub-

cutaneously and for other extemporaneously prepared single dose sterile solutions according to

instructions of the manufacture of the drug to be administered.

WARNING

Sodium Chloride must be used with caution in the presence of congestive heart failure, circulatory

insufficiency, kidney dysfunction or hypoproteinemia.

Excessive amounts of sodium chloride by any route may cause hypokalemia and acidosis. Excessive

amounts by parental routes may precipitate congestive heart failure and acute pulmonary edema,

especially seen in patients with preexisting cardiovascular disease and those receiving coricos-teroids,

corticotrophin or other drugs that may give rise to sodium retention. For use in newborns, when a

Sodium Chloride solution is required for preparation or diluting medications, or in flushing intravenous

catheters, only preservative-free Sodium Chloride Injection, USP, 0.9% should be used.

PRECAUTIONS

GENERAL

Since Sodium Chloride Injection does not contain antimicrobial agents and is intended for single use,

any unused amount must be discarded immediately following withdrawal of any portion of the contents

of the vial or ampul. Do not open ampul until it is to be used.

Consult the manufactures instructions for choice of vehicle, appropriate dilution or volume for

dissolving the drug to be injected, including the route and rate of injection.

PREGNANCY

CATEGORY C-Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with Sodium Chloride Injection.

It is also not known whether Sodium Chloride Injection can cause fetal harm when administered to a

pregnant woman or can effect reproduction capacity. Sodium Chloride Injection should be given to a

pregnant woman only if clearly needed.

ADVERSE REACTIONS

Reactions which may occur because of this solution, added drugs or the technique of reconstitution or

administration include febrile response, local tenderness, abscess, tissue necrosis or infection at the

site of injection, venous thrombosis or phlebitis extending from the site of injection and extravasations.

If an adverse reaction does occur, discontinue the infusion, evaluate the patient, institute appropriate

countermeasures and if possible, retrieve and save the remainder of unused vehicle for examination.

OVERDOSAGE

When used as a diluent, solvent or intravascular flushing solution, this parental preparation is unlikely to

pose a threat of sodium chloride or fluid overload except possible in very small infants. In the event

these should occur, reevaluate the patient and institute appropriate corrective measures.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

Before Sodium Chloride Injection, USP, 0.9% is used as a vehicle for the administration of a

drug;specific references should be checked for any possible incompatibility with sodium chloride.

The volume of the preparation to be used for diluting or dissolving any drug for injection is dependent

on the vehicle concentration, dose and route of administration as recommended by the manufacture.

Sodium Chloride Injection, USP, 0.9% is also indicated for use in flushing intravenous catheters. Prior

to and after administration of the medication, the intravenous catheter should be flushed in its entirety

with Sodium Chloride Injection, USP, 0.9%. Use in accord with any warnings or precautions

appropriate to the medication being administered as recommended by the manufacture. Parental drug

products should be inspected visually for particulate matter and discoloration prior to

administration, whenever solution and container permit.

Lidocaine is a local anesthetic of the amide type.

Lidocaine Hydrochloride, USP is chemically designated 2-(diethyl-amino)-2’,6’-acetoxylidide

monohydrochloride monohydrate, a white powder freely soluble in water. It has the following

structural formula:

Epinephrine, USP is a sympathomimetic (adrenergic) agent designated chemically as 4-[1-hydroxy-2

(methylamino) ethyl]-1,2 benzenediol, a white, microcrystalline powder. It has the following structural

formula:

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

Mechanism of action: Lidocaine stabilizes the neuronal membrane by inhibiting the ionic fluxes

required for the initiation and conduction of impulses, thereby effecting local anesthetic action.

Hemodynamics: Excessive blood levels may cause changes in cardiac output, total peripheral

resistance, and mean arterial pressure. With central neural blockade these changes may be attributable to

block of autonomic fibers, a direct depressant effect of the local anesthetic agent on various

components of the cardiovascular system and/or the beta-adrenergic receptor stimulating action of

epinephrine when present. The net effect is normally a modest hypotension when the recommended

dosages are not exceeded.

Pharmacokinetics and metabolism: Information derived from diverse formulations, concentrations

and usages reveals that lidocaine is completely absorbed following parenteral administration, its rate of

absorption depending, for example, upon various factors such as the site of administration and the

presence or absence of a vasoconstrictor agent. Except for intravascular administration, the highest

blood levels are obtained following intercostal nerve block and the lowest after subcutaneous

administration.

The plasma binding of lidocaine is dependent on drug concentration, and the fraction bound decreases

with increasing concentration. At concentrations of 1 to 4 µg of free base per mL, 60 to 80 percent of

lidocaine is protein bound. Binding is also dependent on the plasma concentration of the alpha-1-acid

glycoprotein.

Lidocaine crosses the blood-brain and placental barriers, presumably by passive diffusion.

Lidocaine is metabolized rapidly by the liver, and metabolites and unchanged drug are excreted by the

kidneys. Biotransformation includes oxidative N-dealkylation, ring hydroxylation, cleavage of the amide

linkage, and conjugation. N-dealkylation, a major pathway of biotransformation, yields the metabolites

monoethylglycinexylidide and glycinexylidide. The pharmacological/toxicological actions of these

metabolites are similar to, but less potent than, those of lidocaine. Approximately 90% of lidocaine

administered is excreted in the form of various metabolites, and less than 10% is excreted unchanged.

The primary metabolite in urine is a conjugate of 4-hydroxy-2, 6-dimethylaniline.

The elimination half-life of lidocaine following an intravenous bolus injection is typically 1.5 to 2.0

hours. Because of the rapid rate at which lidocaine is metabolized, any condition that affects liver

function may alter lidocaine kinetics. The half-life may be prolonged two-fold or more in patients with

liver dysfunction. Renal dysfunction does not affect lidocaine kinetics but may increase the

accumulation of metabolites.

Factors such as acidosis and the use of CNS stimulants and depressants affect the CNS levels of

lidocaine required to produce overt systemic effects. Objective adverse manifestations become

increasingly apparent with increasing venous plasma levels above 6.0 µg free base per mL. In the

rhesus monkey arterial blood levels of 18-21 µg/mL have been shown to be threshold for convulsive

activity.

INDICATIONS AND USAGE

Lidocaine Hydrochloride and Epinephrine Injection, USP is indicated for production of local or

regional anesthesia by infiltration techniques such as percutaneous injection, by peripheral nerve block

techniques such as brachial plexus and intercostal and by central neural techniques such as lumbar and

caudal epidural blocks, when the accepted procedures for these techniques as described in standard

textbooks are observed.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

Lidocaine is contraindicated in patients with a known history of hypersensitivity to local anesthetics of

the amide type.

WARNINGS

LIDOCAINE HYDROCHLORIDE AND EPINEPHRINE INJECTION, USP FOR INFILTRATION

AND NERVE BLOCK SHOULD BE EMPLOYED ONLY BY CLINICIANS WHO ARE WELL

VERSED IN DIAGNOSIS AND MANAGEMENT OF DOSE-RELATED TOXICITY AND OTHER

ACUTE EMERGENCIES THAT MIGHT ARISE FROM THE BLOCK TO BE EMPLOYED AND

THEN ONLY AFTER ENSURING THE IMMEDIATE AVAILABILITY OF OXYGEN, OTHER

RESUSCITATIVE DRUGS, CARDIOPULMONARY EQUIPMENT, AND THE PERSONNEL

NEEDED FOR PROPER MANAGEMENT OF TOXIC REACTIONS AND RELATED

EMERGENCIES (See also ADVERSE REACTIONS and PRECAUTIONS). DELAY IN PROPER

MANAGEMENT OF DOSE-RELATED TOXICITY, UNDERVENTILATION FROM ANY CAUSE

AND/OR ALTERED SENSITIVITY MAY LEAD TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF ACIDOSIS,

CARDIAC ARREST AND, POSSIBLY, DEATH.

Intra-articular infusions of local anesthetics following arthroscopic and other surgical procedures is an

unapproved use, and there have been post-marketing reports of chondrolysis in patients receiving such

infusions. The majority of reported cases of chondrolysis have involved the shoulder joint; cases of

gleno-humeral chondrolysis have been described in pediatric and adult patients following intra-articular

infusions of local anesthetics with and without epinephrine for periods of 48 to 72 hours. There is

insufficient information to determine whether shorter infusion periods are not associated with these

findings. The time of onset of symptoms, such as joint pain, stiffness and loss of motion can be variable,

but may begin as early as the 2nd month after surgery. Currently, there is no effective treatment for

chondrolysis; patients who experienced chondrolysis have required additional diagnostic and

therapeutic procedures and some required arthroplasty or shoulder replacement.

To avoid intravascular injection, aspiration should be performed before the local anesthetic solution is

injected. The needle must be repositioned until no return of blood can be elicited by aspiration. Note,

however, that the absence of blood in the syringe does not guarantee that intravascular injection has

been avoided.

Local anesthetic solutions containing antimicrobial preservatives (e.g., methylparaben) should not be

used for epidural or spinal anesthesia because the safety of these agents has not been established with

regard to intrathecal injection, either intentional or accidental.

Lidocaine Hydrochloride and Epinephrine Injection contains sodium metabisulfite, a sulfite that may

cause allergic-type reactions including anaphylactic symptoms and life-threatening or less severe

asthmatic episodes in certain susceptible people. The overall prevalence of sulfite sensitivity in the

general population is unknown and probably low. Sulfite sensitivity is seen more frequently in asthmatic

than in nonasthmatic people.

PRECAUTIONS

General: The safety and effectiveness of lidocaine depend on proper dosage, correct technique,

adequate precautions, and readiness for emergencies. Standard textbooks should be consulted for

specific techniques and precautions for various regional anesthetic procedures.

Resuscitative equipment, oxygen, and other resuscitative drugs should be available for immediate use.

(See WARNINGS and ADVERSE REACTIONS). The lowest dosage that results in effective

anesthesia should be used to avoid high plasma levels and serious adverse effects. Syringe aspirations

should also be performed before and during each supplemental injection when using indwelling catheter

techniques. During the administration of epidural anesthesia, it is recommended that a test dose be

administered initially and that the patient be monitored for central nervous system toxicity and

cardiovascular toxicity, as well as for signs of unintended intrathecal administration before proceeding.

When clinical conditions permit, consideration should be given to employing local anesthetic solutions

that contain epinephrine for the test dose because circulatory changes compatible with epinephrine may

also serve as a warning sign of unintended intravascular injection. An intravascular injection is still

possible even if aspirations for blood are negative. Repeated doses of lidocaine may cause significant

increases in blood levels with each repeated dose because of slow accumulation of the drug or its

metabolites. Tolerance to elevated blood levels varies with the status of the patient. Debilitated, elderly

patients, acutely ill patients and children should be given reduced doses commensurate with their age

and physical condition. Lidocaine should also be used with caution in patients with severe shock or

heart block.

Lumbar and caudal epidural anesthesia should be used with extreme caution in persons with the

following conditions: existing neurological disease, spinal deformities, septicemia and severe

hypertension.

Local anesthetic solutions containing a vasoconstrictor should be used cautiously and in carefully

circumscribed quantities in areas of the body supplied by end arteries or having otherwise

compromised blood supply. Patients with peripheral vascular disease and those with hypertensive

vascular disease may exhibit exaggerated vasoconstrictor response. Ischemic injury or necrosis may

result. Preparations containing a vasoconstrictor should be used with caution in patients during or

following the administration of potent general anesthetic agents, since cardiac arrhythmias may occur

under such conditions.

Careful and constant monitoring of cardiovascular and respiratory (adequacy of ventilation) vital signs

and the patient’s state of consciousness should be accomplished after each local anesthetic injection. It

should be kept in mind at such times that restlessness, anxiety, tinnitus, dizziness, blurred vision,

tremors, depression or drowsiness may be early warning signs of central nervous system toxicity.

Since amide-type local anesthetics are metabolized by the liver, lidocaine injection should be used with

caution in patients with hepatic disease. Patients with severe hepatic disease because of their inability to

metabolize local anesthetics normally, are a greater risk of developing toxic plasma concentrations.

Lidocaine should also be used with caution in patients with impaired cardiovascular function since they

may be less able to compensate for functional changes associated with the prolongation of A-V

conduction produced by these drugs.

Many drugs used during the conduct of anesthesia are considered potential triggering agents for

familial malignant hyperthermia. Since it is not known whether amide-type local anesthetics may trigger

this reaction and since the need for supplemental general anesthesia cannot be predicted in advance, it is

suggested that a standard protocol for the management of malignant hyperthermia should be available.

Early unexplained signs of tachycardia, tachypnea, labile blood pressure and metabolic acidosis may

precede temperature elevation. Successful outcome is dependent on early diagnosis, prompt

discontinuance of the suspect triggering agent(s) and institution of treatment, including oxygen therapy,

indicated supportive measures and dantrolene (consult dantrolene sodium intravenous package insert

before using).

Injections containing epinephrine or other vasoconstrictors should not be used for intravenous regional

anesthesia.

Lidocaine should be used with caution in persons with known drug sensitivities. Patients allergic to

para-amino-benzoic acid derivatives (procaine, tetracaine, benzocaine, etc.) have not shown cross

sensitivity to lidocaine.

Use in the Head and Neck Area: Small doses of local anesthetics injected into the head and neck area,

including retrobulbar, dental and stellate ganglion blocks, may produce adverse reactions similar to

systemic toxicity seen with unintentional intravascular injections of larger doses. Confusion,

convulsions, respiratory depression and/or respiratory arrest and cardiovascular stimulation or

depression have been reported. These reactions may be due to intra-arterial injections of the local

anesthetic with retrograde flow to the cerebral circulation. Patients receiving these blocks should have

their circulation and respiration monitored and be constantly observed. Resuscitative equipment and

personnel for treating adverse reactions should be immediately available. Dosage recommendations

should not be exceeded. (See DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION).

Information for Patients: When appropriate, patients should be informed in advance that they may

experience temporary loss of sensation and motor activity, usually in the lower half of the body

following proper administration of epidural anesthesia.

Clinically Significant Drug Interactions: The administration of local anesthetic solutions containing

epinephrine or norepinephrine to patients receiving monoamine oxidase inhibitors or tricyclic

antidepressants may produce severe prolonged hypertension.

Phenothiazines and butyrophenones may reduce or reverse the pressor effect of epinephrine.

Concurrent use of these agents should generally be avoided. In situations when concurrent therapy is

necessary, careful patient monitoring is essential.

Concurrent administration of vasopressor drugs (for the treatment of hypotension related to obstetric

blocks) and ergot-type oxytocic drugs may cause severe persistent hypertension or cerebrovascular

accidents.

Drug Laboratory Test Interactions: The intramuscular injection of lidocaine may result in an increase in

creatine phosphokinase levels. Thus, the use of this enzyme determination without isoenzyme separation

as a diagnostic test for the presence of acute myocardial infarction may be compromised by the

intramuscular injection of lidocaine.

Carcinogenesis, Mutagenesis, Impairment of Fertility: Studies of lidocaine in animals to evaluate the

carcinogenic and mutagenic potential or the effect on fertility have not been conducted.

Pregnancy: Teratogenic Effects. Pregnancy Category B. Reproduction studies have been performed in

rats at doses up to 6.6 times the human dose and have revealed no evidence of harm to the fetus caused

by lidocaine. There are, however, no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Animal

reproduction studies are not always predictive of human response. General consideration should be

given to this fact before administering lidocaine to women of childbearing potential, especially during

early pregnancy when maximum organogenesis takes place.

Labor and Delivery: Local anesthetics rapidly cross the placenta and when used for epidural,

paracervical, pudendal or caudal block anesthesia, can cause varying degrees of maternal, fetal and

neonatal toxicity (See CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY-Pharmacokinetics). The potential for toxicity

depends upon the procedure performed, the type and amount of drug used, and the technique of drug

administration. Adverse reactions in the parturient, fetus and neonate involve alterations of the central

nervous system peripheral vascular tone and cardiac function.

Maternal hypotension has resulted from regional anesthesia. Local anesthetics produce vasodilation by

blocking sympathetic nerves. Elevating the patient’s legs and positioning her on her left side will help

prevent decreases in blood pressure. The fetal heart rate also should be monitored continuously, and

electronic fetal monitoring is highly advisable.

Epidural, spinal, paracervical, or pudendal anesthesia may alter the forces of parturition through

changes in uterine contractility or maternal expulsive efforts. In one study, paracervical block

anesthesia was associated with a decrease in the mean duration of first stage labor and facilitation of

cervical dilation. However, spinal and epidural anesthesia have also been reported to prolong the

second stage of labor by removing the parturient’s reflex urge to bear down or by interfering with

motor function. The use of obstetrical anesthesia may increase the need for forceps assistance.

The use of some local anesthetic drug products during labor and delivery may be followed by

diminished muscle strength and tone for the first day or two of life. The long term significance of these

observations is unknown. Fetal bradycardia may occur in 20 to 30 percent of patients receiving

paracervical nerve block anesthesia with the amide-type local anesthetics and may be associated with

fetal acidosis. Fetal heart rate should always be monitored during paracervical anesthesia. The

physician should weigh the possible advantages against risks when considering paracervical block in

prematurity, toxemia of pregnancy and fetal distress. Careful adherence to recommended dosage is of

the utmost importance in obstetrical paracervical block. Failure to achieve adequate analgesia with

recommended doses should arouse suspicion of intravascular or fetal intracranial injection. Cases

compatible with unintended fetal intracranial injection of local anesthetic solution have been reported

following intended paracervical or pudendal block or both. Babies so affected present with unexplained

neonatal depression at birth, which correlates with high local anesthetic serum levels, and often

manifest seizures within six hours. Prompt use of supportive measures combined with forced urinary

excretion of the local anesthetic has been used successfully to manage this complication.

Case reports of maternal convulsions and cardiovascular collapse following use of some local

anesthetics for paracervical block in early pregnancy (as anesthesia for elective abortion) suggest that

systemic absorption under these circumstances may be rapid. The recommended maximum dose of each

drug should not be exceeded. Injection should be made slowly and with frequent aspiration. Allow a 5-

minute interval between sides.

Nursing Mothers: It is not known whether this drug is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are

excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when lidocaine is administered to a nursing woman.

Pediatric Use: Dosages in pediatric patients should be reduced, commensurate with age, body weight

and physical condition. See DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION.

ADVERSE REACTIONS

Systemic: Adverse experiences following the administration of lidocaine are similar in nature to those

observed with other amide local anesthetic agents. These adverse experiences are, in general, dose-

related and may result from high plasma levels caused by excessive dosage, rapid absorption or

inadvertent intravascular injection, or may result from a hypersensitivity, idiosyncrasy or diminished

tolerance on the part of the patient. Serious adverse experiences are generally systemic in nature. The

following types are those most commonly reported:

Central Nervous System: CNS manifestations are excitatory and/or depressant and may be characterized

by lightheadedness, nervousness, apprehension, euphoria, confusion, dizziness, drowsiness, tinnitus,

blurred or double vision, vomiting, sensations of heat, cold or numbness, twitching, tremors,

convulsions, unconsciousness, respiratory depression and arrest. The excitatory manifestations may be

very brief or may not occur at all, in which case the first manifestation of toxicity may be drowsiness

merging into unconsciousness and respiratory arrest.

Drowsiness following the administration of lidocaine is usually an early sign of a high blood level of

the drug and may occur as a consequence of rapid absorption.

Cardiovascular System: Cardiovascular manifestations are usually depressant and are characterized by

bradycardia, hypotension, and cardiovascular collapse, which may lead to cardiac arrest.

Allergic: Allergic reactions are characterized by cutaneous lesions, urticaria, edema or anaphylactoid

reactions. Allergic reactions may occur as a result of sensitivity either to local anesthetic agents, to

bisulfites or to the methylparaben used as a preservative in multiple dose vials. Allergic reactions as a

result of sensitivity to lidocaine are extremely rare and, if they occur, should be managed by

conventional means. The detection of sensitivity by skin testing is of doubtful value.

Neurologic: The incidences of adverse reactions associated with the use of local anesthetics may be

related to the total dose of local anesthetic administered and are also dependent upon the particular drug

used, the route of administration and the physical status of the patient. In a prospective review of 10,440

patients who received lidocaine for spinal anesthesia, the incidences of adverse reactions were

reported to be about 3 percent each for positional headaches, hypotension and backache; 2 percent for

shivering; and less than 1 percent each for peripheral nerve symptoms, nausea, respiratory inadequacy

and double vision. Many of these observations may be related to local anesthetic techniques, with or

without a contribution from the local anesthetic.

In the practice of caudal or lumbar epidural block, occasional unintentional penetration of the

subarachnoid space by the catheter may occur. Subsequent adverse effects may depend partially on the

amount of drug administered subdurally. These may include spinal block of varying magnitude

(including total spinal block), hypotension secondary to spinal block, loss of bladder and bowel control,

and loss of perineal sensation and sexual function. Persistent motor, sensory and/or autonomic (sphincter

control) deficit of some lower spinal segments with slow recovery (several months) or incomplete

recovery have been reported in rare instances when caudal or lumbar epidural block has been attempted.

Backache and headache have also been noted following use of these anesthetic procedures.

There have been reported cases of permanent injury to extraocular muscles requiring surgical repair

following retrobulbar administration.

OVERDOSAGE

Acute emergencies from local anesthetics are generally related to high plasma levels encountered

during therapeutic use of local anesthetics or to unintended subarachnoid injection of local anesthetic

solution (see ADVERSE REACTIONS, WARNINGS and PRECAUTIONS).

Management of Local Anesthetic Emergencies: The first consideration is prevention, best

accomplished by careful monitoring of cardiovascular and respiratory vital signs and the patient’s state

of consciousness after each local anesthetic injection. At the first sign of change, oxygen should be

administered.

The first step in the management of convulsions, as well as under-ventilation or apnea due to unintended

subarachnoid injection of drug solution, consists of immediate attention to the maintenance of a patent

airway and assisted or controlled ventilation with oxygen and a delivery system capable of permitting

immediate positive airway pressure by mask. Immediately after the institution of these ventilatory

measures, the adequacy of the circulation should be evaluated, keeping in mind that drugs used to treat

convulsions sometimes depress the circulation when administered intravenously. Should convulsions

persist despite adequate respiratory support, and if the status of the circulation permits, small increments

of an ultra-short acting barbiturate (such as thiopental or thiamylal) or a benzodiazepine (such as

diazepam) may be administered intravenously. The clinician should be familiar, prior to use of local

anesthetics, with these anticonvulsant drugs. Supportive treatment of circulatory depression may require

administration of intravenous fluids and, when appropriate, a vasopressor as directed by the clinical

situation (e.g., ephedrine).

If not treated immediately, both convulsions and cardiovascular depression can result in hypoxia,

acidosis, bradycardia, arrhythmias and cardiac arrest. Underventilation or apnea due to unintentional

subarachnoid injection of local anesthetic solution may produce these same signs and also lead to

cardiac arrest if ventilatory support is not instituted. If cardiac arrest should occur standard

cardiopulmonary resuscitative measures should be instituted.

Endotracheal intubation, employing drugs and techniques familiar to the clinician, may be indicated, after

initial administration of oxygen by mask, if difficulty is encountered in the maintenance of a patent

airway or if prolonged ventilatory support (assisted or controlled) is indicated.

Dialysis is of negligible value in the treatment of acute overdosage with lidocaine.

The oral LD of lidocaine HCl in non-fasted female rats is 459 (346-773) mg/kg (as the salt) and 214

(159-324) mg/kg (as the salt) in fasted female rats.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

Table I (Recommended Dosages) summarizes the recommended volumes and concentrations of

Lidocaine Hydrochloride Injection, USP for various types of anesthetic procedures. The dosages

suggested in this table are for normal healthy adults and refer to the use of epinephrine-free solutions.

When larger volumes are required only solutions containing epinephrine should be used, except in

those cases where vasopressor drugs may be contraindicated.

There have been adverse event reports of chondrolysis in patients receiving intra-articular infusions of

local anesthetics following arthroscopic and other surgical procedures. Lidocaine is not approved for

this use (see WARNINGS and DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION).

These recommended doses serve only as a guide to the amount of anesthetic required for most routine

procedures. The actual volumes and concentrations to be used depend on a number of factors such as

type and extent of surgical procedure, depth of anesthesia and degree of muscular relaxation required,

duration of anesthesia required, and the physical condition of the patient. In all cases the lowest

concentration and smallest dose that will produce the desired result should be given. Dosages should

be reduced for children and for elderly and debilitated patients and patients with cardiac and/or liver

disease.

The onset of anesthesia, the duration of anesthesia and the degree of muscular relaxation are

proportional to the volume and concentration (i.e., total dose) of local anesthetic used. Thus, an increase

in volume and concentration of Lidocaine Hydrochloride Injection, USP will decrease the onset of

anesthesia, prolong the duration of anesthesia, provide a greater degree of muscular relaxation and

increase the segmental spread of anesthesia. However, increasing the volume and concentration of

Lidocaine Hydrochloride Injection, USP may result in a more profound fall in blood pressure when

used in epidural anesthesia. Although the incidence of side effects with lidocaine is quite low, caution

should be exercised when employing large volumes and concentrations, since the incidence of side

effects is directly proportional to the total dose of local anesthetic agent injected.

Epidural Anesthesia

For an epidural test dose, only the following available specific product of Lidocaine Hydrochloride

and Epinephrine Injection, USP by Hospira is recommended:

1.5% with epinephrine 1:200,000.................... 5 mL single-dose ampuls

For epidural anesthesia, only the following available specific products of Lidocaine Hydrochloride

and Epinephrine Injection, USP by Hospira are recommended:

1% with epinephrine 1:200,000............................ 30 mL single-dose ampuls

30 mL single-dose vials

1.5% with epinephrine 1:200,000.......................... 30 mL single-dose ampuls

30 mL single-dose vials

2% with epinephrine 1:200,000................................ 20 mL single-dose vials

Although these solutions are intended specifically for epidural anesthesia, they may also be used for

infiltration and peripheral nerve block provided they are employed as single-dose units. These

solutions contain no bacteriostatic agent.

In epidural anesthesia, the dosage varies with the number of dermatomes to be anesthetized (generally 2-

3 mL of the indicated concentration per dermatome).

Caudal and Lumbar Epidural Block: As a precaution against the adverse experiences sometimes

observed following unintentional penetration of the subarachnoid space, a test dose such as 2-3 mL of

1.5% lidocaine injection should be administered at least 5 minutes prior to injecting the total volume

required for a lumbar or caudal epidural block. The test dose should be repeated if the patient is moved

in a manner that may have displaced the catheter. Epinephrine, if contained in the test dose (10-15 µg

have been suggested), may serve as a warning of unintentional intravascular injection. If injected into a

blood vessel, this amount of epinephrine is likely to produce a transient “epinephrine response” within

45 seconds, consisting of an increase in heart rate and systolic blood pressure, circumoral pallor,

palpitations and nervousness in the unsedated patient. The sedated patient may exhibit only a pulse rate

increase of 20 or more beats per minute for 15 or more seconds. Patients on beta-blockers may not

manifest changes in heart rate, but blood pressure monitoring can detect an evanescent rise in systolic

blood pressure. Adequate time should be allowed for onset of anesthesia after administration of each

test dose. The rapid injection of a large volume of Lidocaine Hydrochloride and Epinephrine Injection,

USP through the catheter should be avoided, and, when feasible, fractional doses should be

administered.

In the event of the known injection of a large volume of local anesthetic solution into the subarachnoid

space, after suitable resuscitation and if the catheter is in place, consider attempting the recovery of

drug by draining a moderate amount of cerebrospinal fluid (such as 10 mL) through the epidural

catheter.

Maximum Recommended Dosages

Adults: For normal healthy adults, the individual maximum dose of Lidocaine Hydrochloride and

Epinephrine Injection, USP should not exceed 7 mg/kg (3.5 mg/lb) of body weight and in general it is

recommended that the maximum total dose not exceed 500 mg. When used without epinephrine, the

maximum individual dose should not exceed 4.5 mg/kg (2 mg per lb) of body weight, and in general it is

recommended that the maximum total dose does not exceed 300 mg. For continuous epidural or caudal

anesthesia, the maximum recommended dosage should not be administered at intervals of less than 90

minutes. When continuous lumbar or caudal epidural anesthesia is used for non-obstetrical procedures,

more drug may be administered if required to produce adequate anesthesia.

The maximum recommended dose per 90 minute period of lidocaine hydrochloride for paracervical

block in obstetrical patients and non-obstetrical patients is 200 mg total. One half of the total dose is

usually administered to each side. Inject slowly five minutes between sides. (See also discussion of

paracervical block in PRECAUTIONS).

Pediatric Population: It is difficult to recommend a maximum dose of any drug for pediatric patients,

since this varies as a function of age and weight. For pediatric patients over 3 years of age who have a

normal lean body mass and normal body development, the maximum dose is determined by the child’s

age and weight. For example, in a child of 5 years weighing 50 lbs., the dose of lidocaine HCl should

not exceed 75-100 mg (1.5-2 mg/lb).

In order to guard against systemic toxicity, the lowest effective concentration and lowest effective dose

should be used at all times. In some cases it will be necessary to dilute available concentrations with

0.9% sodium chloride injection in order to obtain the required final concentration.

FOR EPIDURAL USE ONLY.

Note: Parenteral drug products should be inspected visually for particulate matter and discoloration

prior to administration whenever the solution and container permit. Do not use the injection if its color

is pinkish or darker than slightly yellow or if it contains a precipitate.

Sterilization, Storage and Technical Procedures: Disinfecting agents containing heavy metals, which

cause release of respective ions (mercury, zinc, copper, etc.) should not be used for skin or mucous

membrane disinfection as they have been related to incidence of swelling and edema. When chemical

disinfection of multi-dose vials is desired, either isopropyl alcohol (91%) or 70% ethyl alcohol is

recommended. Many commercially available brands of rubbing alcohol, as well as solutions of ethyl

alcohol not of USP grade, contain denaturants which are injurious to rubber and, therefore, are not to be

used. It is recommended that chemical disinfection be accomplished by wiping the vial stopper or ampul

thoroughly with cotton or gauze that has been moistened with the recommended alcohol just prior to

use.

Do not autoclave.
