Abstract

Cardiovascular collapse from accidental local anesthetic toxicity is a rare but catastrophic complication of regional anesthesia. The long-acting amide local anesthetics bupivacaine, levobupivacaine and ropivacaine have differential cardiac toxicity, but all are capable of causing death with accidental overdose. In recent times, the chance discovery that lipid emulsion may improve the chance of successful resuscitation has lead to recommendations that it should be available in every location where regional anesthesia is performed. This review will outline the mechanisms of local anesthetic toxicity and the rationale for lipid emulsion therapy.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 22 March 2010.
All research outputs
#2,526,797
of 4,759,378 outputs
Outputs from Local and Regional Anesthesia
#1
of 1 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#45,582
of 91,342 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Local and Regional Anesthesia
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,759,378 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 33rd percentile – i.e., 33% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 0.0. This one scored the same or higher as 0 of them.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 91,342 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 36th percentile – i.e., 36% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
