|Brain tissue levels in a fatal case of neonatal mepivacaine (Carbocaine) poisoning.|
|PMID: 1127509 Owner: NLM Status: MEDLINE|
|A fatal case of mepivacaine poisoning in a newborn infant is reported. Regional brain tissue concentrations of mepivacaine were determined by a sensitive and specific gas chromatographic-mass spectrometric method. The brain tissue levels in this patient were higher than those previously reported, possibly due to alkalosis occurring several hours prior to the infant's death.|
