Anawin Injection (Bupivacaine)
What is Anawin Injection (Bupivacaine) used for?
Anawin Injection (Bupivacaine) is an injectable local anaesthetic administered prior to minor medical procedures or dental procedures. The medication prevents transmission of pain signals from the nerves to the brain to prevent any pain during medical procedures. This action may also make it useful for use as an epidural injection for women going into labour. Your doctor may also prescribe this medication for the treatment of other unlisted conditions.
How should I use Anawin Injection (Bupivacaine)?
Anawin Injection (Bupivacaine) should be used strictly according to your doctor`s directions to get the safest and most effective results from treatment. The medication is normally administered just prior to the medical procedure by a doctor or another trained medical professional. If you are required to perform the injection yourself, make sure you are fully instructed in the correct procedure. The medication should be injected into the muscle or vein located at the area where the procedure is being performed. To administer the medicine sterilize the needle and the injection area, collect the prescribed amount of solution in the syringe, hold it upright and tap the syringe to move any air to the top, and slightly press the plunger to remove any air. The injection may then be performed by inserting the needle and slowly pressing the plunger to allow the medication to disperse. If the medicine is being used as an epidural the injection should ONLY be performed by a trained doctor. Observe the medication prior to each use to make sure it is not cloudy, discoloured, or have suspended particles as this may indicate contamination. Ask your doctor or pharmacist any questions you have about the medicine to ensure the correct administration.
