Artigo recomendado: Lipid Emulsion Infusion - Resuscitation for Local Anesthetic and Other Drug Overdose

Guy L. Weinberg, M.D.
Anesthesiology, V 117 - No 1. July 2012

It seems implausible that an injection of a simple, off-theshelf, intravenous nutritional solution could be acutely life-saving for a patient with severe drug overdose. But dozens of published case reports support this observation, first made more than a decade ago in a rodent model of bupivacaine toxicity. It is even more surprising that such a simple formulation can rapidly reverse severe clinical toxicity from a variety of vastly disparate medications with distinct pharmacodynamics and mechanisms of action. This review will focus on the clinical application of lipid emulsion therapy in resuscitation from drug-related toxicity and will provide an introduction to the development of the method, guidelines for its use, and insights into potential controversies and future applications.
