Risk of anesthesia for treatment of armpit / hyperhidrosis

It takes about 1 minute to read this article.

It's a painful accident.
Even in dentistry, there are endless cases of infant deaths due to xylocaine poisoning almost every year.Like many people, doctors do not pay attention to the concentration and amount of anesthesia to be injected, thinking that it is safe because it is a local anesthesia and that there is no risk because it is a local anesthesia.

In the past, a woman in her twenties was given a local anesthesia for armpit surgery, and a fatal accident due to xylocaine poisoning occurred at a cosmetic surgery clinic in Tokyo, which was widely reported in the news.

In dentistry, anesthesia is performed using XNUMX% concentration of xylocaine, that is, lidocaine hydrochloride.
Even in cosmetic surgery, it may be used for long-term surgery with a high concentration of XNUMX%.
However, anesthesia is sufficiently effective even at a low concentration of XNUMX%.
In particular, if anesthesia is performed at a concentration of XNUMX/XNUMX, there is almost no risk and an accident is unlikely to occur.

In treatments such as MiraDry and Viewhot, there are many facilities where nurses perform treatment after anesthesia by a doctor, and treatment is recommended without examining the patient's reaction or condition after injection of local anesthesia. I am afraid that anesthesia accidents can occur even during treatment.

In principle, XNUMX% of local anesthesia is used at this hospital, and local anesthesia is carried out so as not to burden the patient's body so that anesthesia accidents never occur.

Anesthesia for the treatment of hircismus and hyperhidrosis is local, so it is not safe ... but it is important for patients to know the facts before receiving treatment.
