This session explores the principles of local anaesthetic use for subdermal implant (SDI) insertion and removal.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Describe the formulation of the local anaesthetic commonly used for subdermal implant (SDI) insertion and removal
  • Explain the pharmacokinetics of the local anaesthetic used for SDI insertion and removal
  • Recognise the risks of the local anaesthetic when used in SDI insertion and removal
  • Describe the aspiration technique of subdermal local anaesthetic injection
  • Outline the features and management of local anaesthetic overdose in SDI procedures

Local anaesthetics work by blocking the nerves from a part of the body so that pain signals cannot reach the brain. They do this by blocking voltage-gated sodium channels from inside nerve axons to prevent conduction along the nerve.
