The Use of Anesthetics for IV Starts Columbus State University Purpose Patient advocates: - Strive to provide the utmost comfort for patients Purpose:
- To determine if the use of local anesthetics reduces the pain and discomfort of patients during venous catheterization Clinical Question Should
hospital patients receive local anesthetics prior to intravenous catheterization rather than no local anesthetics as a measure to reduce pain? Options Cream No Anesthetics EMLA
ELA-Max Lidocaine No Local Anesthetics It is the patients option to choose whether they would like to have local anesthetics Creams EMLA Cream ELA-Max
EMLA Cream Made of a 1:1 combination of 2.5% Lidocaine and 2.5% Prilocaine Applied topically to the intended IV site and covered with an occlusive dressing The recommended dose is 2.5 g It is also recommended that you give it 4560 minutes to take full effect; however,
some research has found that it can take partial effect and IV pain can be reduced in as little as 5 minutes EMLA Cream Patients taking drugs that induce the production of methemoglobin (such as Sulfonamides, Acetaminophen, and Phenobarbital) should be aware that it can cause methemoglobinemia It is also contraindicated for patients
allergic to Lidocaine, Prilocaine, or other topical anesthetics ELA-Max Each gram of ELA-Max contains 40 mg of
Lidocaine, lecithin, propylene glycol, carbomer 940, benzyl alcohol, vitamin E acetate, cholesterol, triethanolalmine, polysorbate 80, and purified water Reaches maximum effect in 30 minutes It does not contain Prilocaine so there is no risk of methemoglobinemia ELA-Max applied for 30 minutes is as effective as EMLA cream applied for 60 minutes in preventing pain during IV insertion Cost of ELA-Max and EMLA Cream is approximately the same
