Lidocaine used in which route leads to neonatal CNS depression?


in a child of five years weighing 50 lbs, the dose of lidocaine hydrochloride should not exceed 75 to 100 mg when calculated according to Clark’s rule. In any case, the maximum amount of Xylocaine administered should not exceed 4.5 mg/kg (2 mg/lb) of body weight.


Thank you doctor
