There are instances when we may want to reduce or reverse the effect of anesthesia in our patients. OraVerse is a product that does just that. But exactly how does it work? OraVerse must be injected into the same site and in the same way the anesthetic was injected. Are there certain patient populations we should not use OraVerse on?
In this week’s episode of Medical History Mysteries, Drs. Tom Viola and Pamela Maragliano-Muniz discuss how to use OraVerse, why it works, how much to use, and its effect on patients’ overall health.
