Keep patient alive: As soon as overdose is suspected activate the emergency medical system..911 or other emergency responders in your area. You should already be prepared to do so before any thing has a chance to go wrong. Local anesthetics depress the central nervous system. Support he airway and administer o2 via nasal route or via ambu bag if breathing needs assistance. Be prepared for convulsions, vomiting, aspir.
