Topical Anaesthetics is a subject that has many frequently asked questions, usually around regulations, application and ingredients. This course has been designed to help answer all your questions. It is for all practitioners who perform any skin penetration procedures that require the use of topical anaesthetic.

COURSE OUTLINE

Physiology of Nerve Conduction: Nerve anatomy, electrophysiology of nerve conduction, voltage gated channels

Historical Perspective: We begin at the 1800s with the introduction of cocaine hydrochloride.

Pharmacodynamics: How anaesthetics block generation and conduction of nerve signals. Understanding the basic classes of esters and amides, including additions of epinephrine

Pharmacokinetics: Identify the pathways of absorption, distribution and metabolism

Toxicity: Safety, adverse reactions and their management

Topical Local Anaesthetics: Ingredients, over the counter, compounding and prescription. Scheduling of medicines, client consent, medical history and indemnity
