Experimental: Lidocaine infusion
Each participant will receive an intravenous infusion of lidocaine. Plasma concentrations will be increased gradually from 0-5 µg/ml.
Drug: Intravenous lidocaine
Intravenous lidocaine administered up to 5 µg/ml.
- Present Pain Intensity [ Time Frame: Patients completed the VAS of present pain intensity at each infusion level. Each infusion level took approximately one hour, and the assessment was done at the end of the hour (approximately 3 hours total). ]Present pain intensity was measured using the visual analog scale (VAS). This is scored between 0 (no pain) to 10 (worst possible pain).
