The quality of nasal anesthesia obtained with three local anesthetic solutions (4% cocaine, 2% lidocaine in oxymetazoline, and 1% tetracaine in oxymetazoline) was evaluated in a randomized study. Each local anesthetic mixture was applied to the nasal septum of healthy volunteers using medication-soaked pledgets. Measurements of anesthetic effect (sensation(More)
