Which properties of the drug are the ionized form of local anesthetics is mainly responsible for?
Receptor binding-answer: d (katzung, pp 418, brunton, pp 371) local anesthetics are weak bases and in the in the body fluids they exist either as the uncharged base (nonionized form ) or as a cation (ionized form). since the non ionized form is lipid
Which fraction of the drug will be in the lipid-soluble form in the extracellular fluids (pH = 7.4) if the pKa(negative log of acid) of lidocaine is 7.9?
24%-answer: b (katzung, pp 418, brunton, pp 374) all local anesthetics, but benzocaine, are weak bases and therefore they are mainly ionized when their pka is higher than the ph of the body fluids, like in the present case. the ratio between the non
