Local Anaesthetic

    1) Are you aware of what's happening when given a local anaesthetic?


    2) What's the difference between a local anaesthetic and a sedative?


    TIA

  • Pretty sure this is the wrong forum but anyway:

    Local anaesthetic just numbs the (local) small area that is experiencing/will experience pain. Like if you need stitches for a cut they will numb the area first with local anaesthetic. You are awake.

    Sedative puts you to sleep (general anaesthetic)
