Background

Lidocaine is widely used in obstetrics and gynaecology as a local anaesthetic. The maximum dose is not universally agreed upon, although one suggested dose regime is 3mg/kg (or 7mg/kg with adrenaline). It is important to note that the BNF recommends a maximum dose of 200mg (500mg with adrenaline).
