Maybe for a 2-3 kg pediatric patient. Not for a 70 kg adult.

Also, lidocaine doesn't cause "burning discomfort" - most of us use it to prevent that with induction, actually. I usually give 1-2 mg/kg IV of lidocaine on induction, and since many of our patients approach 100 kg, 100 mg can be a standard dose.

Weird post, are you a physician?

OK thank you very much.No actualy im contemplating suicide with 4.5mg of potassium injection.to get away from burning my veins and the pain i found out lidocain would do the trick.But dont have regrets im already on it, i ordered both KCl and lidocaine.But i was wondering that 100ml of lidocain would stop my heart before i injected potassium or even paralyzed me instantly.I have a question though if you can help me out.How much time do you think i should wait after injecting 100ml of lidocain so i can numb the vein region before i proceeded with potassium?i will delete thread after this and dont have regrets please im mature
