Abstract

A short review was carried out to see if mixing lidocaine with propofol is a safe and effective method in reducing the commonly reported pain at the injection site. Four relevant papers were found using the described search strategy. The author, date and country of publication, patient group studied, study type, relevant outcomes, results and study weaknesses of these papers are tabulated. Although a promising idea, a paucity of good quality evidence suggests further needed research.
