Digital perfusion research was conducted with two local anesthetics, lidocaine and bupivacaine. The studies were performed utilizing both anesthetic agents, plain and with various concentrations of epinephrine. The drugs' effects on blood perfusion over a 24-hr. period were recorded and discussed. The onset and duration of anesthesia were also compared.
