The successful use of intralipid for treatment of local anesthetic-induced central nervous system toxicity: Some considerations for administration of intralipid in an emergency
Date of this Version

This paper presents a case report of a patient who developed signs of local anesthetic toxicity and was subsequently treated with 20% Intralipid with a positive response. Some background and practical applications regarding this treatment are discussed.
