Local Anesthetic Toxicity - Toxicity - Systemic - Central Nervous System

Central Nervous System

Systemic toxic reactions to locally administered anesthetics are progressive as the level of the anesthetic agent in the blood rises. Initial symptoms suggest some form of central nervous system excitation such as a ringing in the ears (tinnitus), a metallic taste in the mouth, or tingling or numbness of the mouth. Advanced symptoms include motor twitching in the periphery followed by grand mal seizures, coma, and eventually respiratory arrest.

Famous quotes containing the words nervous system, system, central and/or nervous:

    A car can massage organs which no masseur can reach. It is the one remedy for the disorders of the great sympathetic nervous system.
    Jean Cocteau (1889–1963)

    Every political system is an accumulation of habits, customs, prejudices, and principles that have survived a long process of trial and error and of ceaseless response to changing circumstances. If the system works well on the whole, it is a lucky accident—the luckiest, indeed, that can befall a society.
    Edward C. Banfield (b. 1916)

    In a large university, there are as many deans and executive heads as there are schools and departments. Their relations to one another are intricate and periodic; in fact, “galaxy” is too loose a term: it is a planetarium of deans with the President of the University as a central sun. One can see eclipses, inner systems, and oppositions.
    Jacques Barzun (b. 1907)

    He was the finest of our happy men;
    He had all joys, he never thought of death;
    He fiddled sometimes with his mind, and then
    Shook off the tremor like a nervous wren....
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
