Quadrajel consists of Chlorhexidine Gluconate, Lidocaine Hydrochloride, Metronidazole Benzoate.
Chlorhexidine Gluconate - A disinfectant and topical anti-infective agent used also as mouthwash to prevent oral plaque.
Indication: For reduction of pocket depth in patients with adult periodontitis, used as an adjunct to scaling and root planing procedures. Also for prevention of dental caries, oropharyngeal decontamination in critically ill patients, hand hygiene in health-care personnel, general skin cleanser, and catheter site preparation and care.
Quadrajel (Chlorhexidine Gluconate), a topical antimicrobial agent, is bactericidal. Because of its positive charge, the Quadrajel (Chlorhexidine Gluconate) molecule reacts with the microbial cell surface to destroy the integrity of the cell membrane. This novel mechanism of action makes it highly unlikely for the development of bacterial resistance.
Lidocaine Hydrochloride - A local anesthetic and cardiac depressant used as an antiarrhythmia agent. Its actions are more intense and its effects more prolonged than those of procaine but its duration of action is shorter than that of bupivacaine or prilocaine.
Indication: For production of local or regional anesthesia by infiltration techniques such as percutaneous injection and intravenous regional anesthesia by peripheral nerve block techniques such as brachial plexus and intercostal and by central neural techniques such as lumbar and caudal epidural blocks.
Quadrajel (Lidocaine Hydrochloride) is an anesthetic agent indicated for production of local or regional anesthesia and in the treatment of ventricular tachycardia occurring during cardiac manipulation, such as surgery or catheterization, or which may occur during acute myocardial infarction, digitalis toxicity, or other cardiac diseases. The mode of action of the antiarrhythmic effect of Quadrajel (Lidocaine Hydrochloride) appears to be similar to that of procaine, procainamide and quinidine. Ventricular excitability is depressed and the stimulation threshold of the ventricle is increased during diastole. The sinoatrial node is, however, unaffected. In contrast to the latter 3 drugs, Quadrajel (Lidocaine Hydrochloride) in therapeutic doses does not produce a significant decrease in arterial pressure or in cardiac contractile force. In larger doses, Quadrajel (Lidocaine Hydrochloride) may produce circulatory depression, but the magnitude of the change is less than that found with comparable doses of procainamide.
