Lipid emulsion intravenous infusion is recommended in reversing cardiac toxicity of local anaesthetics. Recent reports indicate, that it may be useful in the treatment of cardiotoxic drug overdose. While the mechanism of action is not fully understood, creation of a "lipid sink" is the predominant effect. The aim of the paper is to present the efficacy and indications for the use of lipid emulsion in acute poisoning, basing on the medical literature.
