Rectinol consists of Benzocaine, Epinephrine, Zinc Oxide.
Benzocaine - A surface anesthetic that acts by preventing transmission of impulses along nerve fibers and at nerve endings.
Indication: For general use as a lubricant and topical anesthetic on esophagus, larynx, mouth, nasal cavity, rectum, respiratory tract or trachea, urinary tract, vagina. It is also used to suppress gag reflex.
Rectinol (Benzocaine) is a local anesthetic commonly used as a topical pain reliever. It is the active ingredient in many over-the-counter analgesic ointments. It is also indicated for general use as a lubricant and topical anesthetic on intratracheal catheters and pharyngeal and nasal airways to obtund the pharyngeal and tracheal reflexes; on nasogastric and endoscopic tubes; urinary catheters; laryngoscopes; proctoscopes; sigmoidoscopes and vaginal specula.
Epinephrine - The active sympathomimetic hormone from the adrenal medulla in most species. It stimulates both the alpha- and beta- adrenergic systems, causes systemic vasoconstriction and gastrointestinal relaxation, stimulates the heart, and dilates bronchi and cerebral vessels. It is used in asthma and cardiac failure and to delay absorption of local anesthetics.
Indication: Used to treat anaphylaxis and sepsis. Also one of the body's main adrenergic neurotransmitters.
Rectinol (Epinephrine) is indicated for intravenous injection in treatment of acute hypersensitivity, treatment of acute asthmatic attacks to relieve bronchospasm, and treatment and prophylaxis of cardiac arrest and attacks of transitory atrioventricular heart block with syncopal seizures (Stokes-Adams Syndrome). The actions of Rectinol (Epinephrine) resemble the effects of stimulation of adrenergic nerves. To a variable degree it acts on both alpha and beta receptor sites of sympathetic effector cells. Its most prominent actions are on the beta receptors of the heart, vascular and other smooth muscle. When given by rapid intravenous injection, it produces a rapid rise in blood pressure, mainly systolic, by (1) direct stimulation of cardiac muscle which increases the strength of ventricular contraction, (2) increasing the heart rate and (3) constriction of the arterioles in the skin, mucosa and splanchnic areas of the circulation. When given by slow intravenous injection, Rectinol (Epinephrine) usually produces only a moderate rise in systolic and a fall in diastolic pressure. Although some increase in pulse pressure occurs, there is usually no great elevation in mean blood pressure. Accordingly, the compensatory reflex mechanisms that come into play with a pronounced increase in blood pressure do not antagonize the direct cardiac actions of Rectinol (Epinephrine) as much as with catecholamines that have a predominant action on alpha receptors.
Zinc Oxide - This medication is used to temporarily relieve burning, pain, and itching caused by hemorrhoids. This product contains ingredients such as cocoa butter, starch, or Rectinol (Zinc Oxide) that form a protective barrier to prevent too much irritating contact with stool. This barrier helps protect inflamed, irritated skin and helps make bowel movements less painful.
