Lidocaine administration


Specialty of Pain medicine

 
The perfusion of lidocaine is a treatment by which a local anaesthetic (lidocaine) is administered intravenously to block the pain in the particular area being treated . A catheter inserted through a vein administers an analgesic for 60 to 90 minutes, while heart rate and blood pressure is controlled, as this drug may cause cardiac abnormalities. Lidocaine acts as a block between the nerve and the brain, preventing pain signals. This treatment is particularly suited to post-herpetic pain and pain associated with fibromyalgia.
