Local anesthetics are used frequently in health-care practice, being used by physicians, surgeons, and anesthesiologists; however, the local anesthesia systemic toxicity (LAST) is still not taken very seriously by the health-care workers (HCWs). LAST is an underreported complication, and many HCWs need to experience it firsthand to realize the criticality of the situation. The idea behind publishing this case report is to increase the awareness of complication called LAST and familiarize HCWs with the management guidelines.
