Abstract

Clinical cardiac electrophysiologic studies are performed to evaluate mechanisms of arrhythmias and their response to therapy. Lidocaine, injected to provide local anesthesia before insertion of the electrode catheter, can affect the results of such studies if substantial blood concentrations are achieved. This study was designed to measure lidocaine concentrations in patients undergoing cardiac electrophysiologic studies.
