Be Ready to Treat Toxicity From Local Anesthetics With IV Lipids

You'll play a bigger role in treating toxicity from local anesthetics...bupivacaine, lidocaine, ropivacaine, etc.

There are more cases of toxicity occurring outside of the surgical setting. This is possibly from increased anesthetic use to reduce opioids...or delayed onset of toxicity from continuous infusions.

Be prepared to identify and treat systemic toxicity...which can quickly progress from seizures or hypotension to cardiac arrest or death.
