English spelling of local anesthetic.

Like dem bones said in that other node, it's a form of pain relief that works in a localised area, unlike general anaesthesia. Lignocaine is the premier local anaesthetic drug (used by millions of dentists and doctors worldwide!) although there are others such as Bupivacaine and Mepivacaine.

see procaine, xylocaine, lidocaine, carbocaine
