Anyboydy have thoughts on what they will do about the impending shortage of anesthetics (Lidocaine and Bupivacaine) with Epi shortage?
Obviously something they use quite frequently in the surgical setting and we've had some discussion as to what an appropriate alternative might be but nothing seems practical from a workflow and practice standpoint.
Thanks for any help / ideas / thoughts.
