Here’s what I’m currently using:
- October 2017
- Lidocaine bolus: 1.5mg/kg on induction
- Infusion: 2-3mg/kg/hr after induction to end surgery
- If cardiac on CPB: bolus 1.5mg/kg on induction; Infusion: 4 mg/min x 48 hrs or discharge from ICU; On CPB bolus 4 mg/kg.
I’m also currently working on ERAS protocols for my practice as well as the use of ketamine infusions for intraoperative and postoperative pain and recovery.
