Impending Anesthetic with Epi Shortage

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.

Re: Impending Anesthetic with Epi Shortage

I work for a FDA Registered 503(b) Outsourcing Facility.  We currently have product available off the FDA Shortage list.  We have lidocaine 1% with epinephrine in 50ml vials available to ship today.  


We also have sodium bicarbonate 8.4% As well as other items that currently in shortage.
