What is it?
A lidocaine infusion entails having an intravenous line started in one of our clinics and has lidocaine infused into their blood for 30-60 minutes. Patients are monitored during the infusion process.
Lidocaine is a local anesthetic most commonly used for local or regional anesthesia. Intravenous lidocaine infusion is also used for pain control during operations, and has been used to treat chronic neuropathic pain. Kansas Pain Management believes that lidocaine infusion should be reserved for patients who have not responded to other more conservative treatments.
