etidocaine

local anaesthetic agent (not currently available in the UK); faster onset of action and longer duration of action than lidocaine (i.e. approximately 4 hours, as plain solution); also produces intense motor blockade; normally presented as 1% solution; maximum safe dose is 300 mg in 24 hours, for a 70-kg adult
