Reading Time: <1 minuteI have previously written about anesthesia for underarm odor in a blog. When treating underarm odor, it is essential to inform patients about the risks of anesthesia. However, it seems that almost all medical institutions do not inform patients about the risks of local anesthesia. Many doctors are unaware of the risks of the local anesthetic xylocaine. As shown in the table above, if 10cc of 2% xylocaine is rapidly injected into the body as an anesthetic, it will exceed the maximum dose and may even be life-threatening. In fact, a tragic fatal accident occurred at a certain cosmetic surgery clinic, where an inexperienced cosmetic surgeon administered a local anesthetic to a female patient in her 20s before surgery for underarm odor, resulting in her death. Fatal accidents from local anesthetics? It is not impossible. Recently, young cosmetic surgeons have become charismatic on social media, and cosmetic surgeons with very little experience and knowledge are overconfident in treating patients without receiving education on these risks. At our hospital, we currently mix a homemade anesthetic that adjusts the concentration of xylocaine to 0.17% or less, mixes it with the alkaline drug meiron to adjust the pH and suppress pain during pain. With MiraDry, it is not uncommon to administer more than 20cc to one armpit, and if 2% xylocaine is used on both armpits, it can be life-threatening... Just because it is a famous cosmetic surgery clinic, doesn't mean the anesthesia is safe. A cosmetic surgeon who calls himself the director and has almost no medical or surgical knowledge performs local anesthesia without considering the risks, which is a very scary medical procedure. Moreover, after the anesthetic injection is completed, the MiraDry treatment is left entirely to the nurses, and they may not notice any abnormal symptoms due to xylocaine poisoning after anesthesia. Of course, nurses have no knowledge or experience in this field. If such risky medical procedures are performed with profit as the priority, the patient's life will be threatened. I would like patients to know that local anesthesia also carries great risks before treatment.
