Summary

This review examines the pharmacologic and pharmacokinetic aspects of the intravenous

infusion of lipid emulsion and surveys the literature on the indications for using this

treatment in cases of intoxication. Although the level of evidence is low, intravenous lipid

emulsion seems now to occupy an undisputed position as an antidote, not only in

cardiotoxicity induced by local anesthetics but also in resuscitation after other toxic

insults affecting the cardiovascular system.
