Ropivacaine hydrochloride is a long-acting amide-type local anaesthetic with both anaesthetic and analgesic effects. At high doses ropivacaine hydrochloride produces surgical anaesthesia, while at lower doses it produces sensory block with limited and non-progressive motor block. The most characteristic property of ropivacaine hydrochloride is the long duration of action. Onset and duration of the local anaesthetic efficacy are dependant upon the administration site and dose, but are not influenced by the presence of a vasoconstrictor (e.g. epinephrine). Premix ready to use formulations of Ropivacaine with Narcotics are under development.
