Plasma lidocaine concentrations were intermittently measured in 8 upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and 12 bronchoscopy patients. The highest individual concentration was 0.98 microgram/ml in the upper gastrointestinal endoscopy patients and 3.79 microgram/ml in the bronchoscopy patients. Highest concentrations were reached at 15 minutes in the gastrointestinal endoscopy patients and at 30 or 60 minutes in the bronchoscopy patients. Thus, since lidocaine does not produce toxic effects at… 
Plasma concentrations of lignocaine during fibreoptic bronchoscopy.
TLDR
Peak plasma concentrations were recorded in 41 patients receiving topically applied lignocaine for fiberoptic bronchoscopy and a major proportion of the total dose was required to anaesthetise the nose, pharynx and larynx, only a small proportion being needed for the bronchial tree.
Plasma Lidocaine Concentration and Hemodynamic Effect after 10% Lidocaine Spray on Laryngopharyngeal and Intratracheal Site during the Endotracheal Intubation
TLDR
Sympathetic responses after 2-3 mg/kg lidocaine spray on laryngopharynx are favorably but not sufficiently attenuated during endotracheal intubation.
Seizure After Lidocaine for Bronchoscopy: Case Report and Review of the Use of Lidocaine in Airway Anesthesia
TLDR
A direct correlation exists between clinical symptoms and blood level of lidocaine; as the level increases to 8–12 mg/L the probability of seizure increases, and the dose often has to be decreased empirically in patients with liver disease or CHF.
Translaryngeal absorption of lidocaine.
Lidocaine Absorption and Metabolism after Oropharyngeal Application in Young and Young-Elderly Adults
TLDR
It is suggested that, over the age range studied, increased age does not impair lidocaine absorption from the oropharynx or lidOCaine metabolism when topical lidocane is used during flexible fiberoptic bronchoscopy.
Comparison of nebulized and sprayed topical anaesthesia for fibreoptic bronchoscopy.
TLDR
It is concluded that nebulized and sprayed lignocaine have similar efficacy as topical anaesthetics in fibreoptic bronchoscopy, but patient preference favours the neBulized route.
Monitoring, Sedation, and Anesthesia for Flexible Fiberoptic Bronchoscopy
TLDR
The role of conscious sedation and topical anesthetics to ensure maximal performance by the bronchoscopist to achieve the desired goal of successful biopsy or other interventions while the patient remains comfortable throughout the entire procedure.
