Bet 2: Intralipid/Lipid Emulsion in Beta-Blocker Overdose


A short cut review was performed to seek the evidence for use of intravenous lipid emulsion in the treatment of overdose with β-receptor antagonists. Eight case reports and one case series with a total of 10 patients were found.

The clinical bottom line is that there is only anecdotal evidence of effectiveness for this treatment.
