A doctor has provided 1 answer

Nonspecific: Na channell blockade is a characteristic of lidocaine, that what allows it's use not only as a local anesthetic, but as antiarrhythmic agent as well. Although i must admit that i did not completely understand your question, the answer is yes, to my opinion. Hopefully you will be helped more by my colleagues, good luck.
