This webinar will also discuss why epinephrine is added to local anesthetic solutions and what the clinical advantages and disadvantages are when using epinephrine-containing solutions. Finally, we will discuss the maximum doses of epinephrine for healthy and cardiovascular compromised patients as well as drug interactions that clinicians should be aware of.

Upon completion of this CE webinar, the student will learn:
