Can lidocaine used during nasal scope to look at vocal chords cause cardiac side effects? is it safe for someone with brugada syndrome?

Lidocaine: It does have cardiac effects but it is dose based. For nasal scope they wont need too much of it so you should be fine. If your overly concerned inquire about chloroprocaine.
