Group II received 15 ml of 2% lignocaine
+ 5 ml of sodium bicarbonate,
has been used intravenously since 1960 for several indications, such as regional blocks, antiarrhythmic, as analgesic in neuropathic and central pain, as adjuvant in postoperative pain refractory to opioids6.
The blood glucose concentration was higher in lignocaine
with adrenaline when compared to lignocaine
without adrenaline with a mean difference of 9.2 mg % (154.0-163.2mg/dl) at 10 min which was statistically not significant P 0.264 (P >0.05).
All doctors and nurses working in the ED were briefed on the lignocaine
Time of onset of sensory block was significantly (p < 0.01) faster in the case of lignocaine
group (group 2).
In Group B, the same procedure was carried out by using two cartridges of the 2.2 ml each, 2% lignocaine
reduces the pain of injection during peribulbar local anaesthesia for cataract surgery.
Various methods have been used to decrease propofol injection pain; these include the addition of lignocaine
to propofol, the application of propofol at a different temperature or dilution, along with the adjuvant use of lignocaine
, alfentanil, remifentanil, ondansetron, ephedrine, thiopentone ketamine or paracetamol prior to injection (4-12).

"There was also a high quantity of Lignocaine
. Some cocaine is very highly cut with Lignocaine
This randomised study evaluated whether, compared with a placebo, topical application of 1% lignocaine
on the fallopian tubes reduces intra- and postoperative pain in tubal ligation under local anaesthesia.
Piroxicam group demonstrated significant decrease in pain intensity after 48 hours (Mean SD=0.40 0.49) compared to lignocaine
having mean pain values of 1.37 ( 0.93) at 48 hours.
