28THE SAFETY ZONE OF LOCAL ANESTHETICS
One of most important steps in a hair transplantation procedure is to buffer the amount of local anesthetic agent during the long procedure and avoid any unnecessary overdose treatment. The duration of action of a local anesthetic is related to its existence in the area applied. Therefore, the knowledge of decay timing of the anesthetic agent is crucial for a safety application. Any overdose treatments might lead to serious systemic side effects such as cardiopulmonary disturbances, respiratory arrest or even convulsions or seizures.
With our highly skillful anesthesiologist team we are able to provide our patients with the highest level of safety during their local anesthetic application and embrace our patients with our security protocol called the “Be SAFE CONCEPT”
The concept entails an interactive computer software system for a safe and efficient local anesthetic application based on the patient weight, medical status, area of application and procedure duration.
