LipidRescue™ resuscitation refers to the use of an intravascular infusion of a lipid emulsion to treat severe, systemic drug toxicity or poisoning.

It was originally developed to treat local anesthetic toxicity, a potentially fatal complication of regional anesthesia that can also occur in other situations where patients receive local anesthetic injections.
