Ester Linked Agents Amethocaine

Amethocaine (tetracaine) is an ester local anaesthetic agent used for topical anaesthesia. It is available as a gel (4%) for local anaesthesia of the skin before intravascular cannulation. Applied to the skin it is effective within 45 min. The preparation should not be applied to inflamed or damaged skin or highly vascular tissues as it is rapidly absorbed through mucosal surfaces. More dilute solutions (0.5 and 1%) are available for topical anaesthesia of the conjunctiva. Amethocaine is potent and readily absorbed but in common with other ester local anaesthetics, it may cause hypersensitivity.
