4 Local anesthetic systemic toxicity Neurological toxicity Cardiac toxicity CNS toxicity threshold: Bupivacaine 0.3 mg/l; Ropivacaine 0.6 mg/l Br J Anaesth. 1997; 78:507-14

5 Local anesthetic systemic toxicity Mechanisms of LAST Inadvertent intravascular injection Rapid absorption into circulation Co-morbidity: renal, hepatic, cardiac disease, end-stage pregnancy Individual disposition, extremes of age? Reg Anesth Pain Med 2004; 29:564-75

6 Local anesthetic systemic toxicity Time course of LAST Instant IV injection (few circulation times, CVS collapse) Instant arterial injection (seizures, no CVS collapse) Delayed excessive plasma concentrations (< 30min) EJA 2014; 31:575
