In brief: Local anesthetic
It's an amide local anesthetic like lidocaine.
The main use by anesthesiologists in us nowadays is as a way to test for extreme sensitivity to succinylcholine. I believe it is used in uk more. Because of its effects on plasma cholinesterase, tell anesthesiologist about use or stop if planning surgery.
