Lipid rescue is a term that has been coined to describe the use of intravenous lipid emulsion to treat severe local anaesthetic toxicity.
Additional recommended knowledge
To date, Intralipid, a commonly available intravenous lipid emulsion is the only such emulsion to be shown to be effective in this way.
This is supported by animal evidence and human case reports of successful use in this way. In the UK, efforts have been made to publicise this use more widely and lipid rescue has now been officially promoted as a treatment by the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland. There is now one published case report of successful treatment of refractory cardiac arrest in bupropion and lamotrigine overdose using lipid emulsion.
