Continuous Lidocaine Infusion as Adjunctive Analgesia in Critically Ill Patients: A Case Series

Project Description: "Systemic lidocaine infusion has been used as an adjunct analgesic agent in patients with various types of pain, including chronic pain associated with terminal illness as well as pain from surgery or neuropathy. Although lidocaine infusion has a promising role in pain management in the intensive care unit (ICU) due to the lack of respiratory depression, the safety and effectiveness of its long-term use in ICU patients have not been well studied"
