Local anesthetics functions by blocking the generation and the conduction of nerve impulses. The blocking is mostly done by increasing the threshold for electrical excitation in the nerve, by slowing the propagation of the nerve impulse and by reducing the rate of rise of the action potential. The effect and progression of anaesthesia is mostly related to the diameter, myelination and conduction velocity of affected nerve fibres. The order by which the nerve loses its functionality will be as follows: pain, temperature, touch, proprioception and skeletal muscle tone.

The common drugs in local anaesthetics can be chemically classified as: a) Ester linked Local Anesthetics like Cocaine, Procaine, Chloroprocaine, Tetracaine, benzocaine and others. b) Amide linked Local anesthetics such as Lidocaine, Bupivacaine, dibucaine, prilocaine, ropivacaine and others.
