Answer

Anesthetics

Anesthetic agents are used to produce local anesthesia.

Cocaine

Decreases membrane permeability to sodium ions, which, in turn, inhibits depolarization and blocks conduction of nerve impulses.

Use the lowest dose necessary to produce anesthesia. The 4% solution is available as a 4-mL unit-dose vial (total of 16 mg of cocaine) or 10-mL multidose vial (total of 40 mg cocaine).
