Lipid emulsion exerts rapid, positive inotropic and positive lusitropic effects in both intact animal and isolated heart models. We hypothesize that this inotropy and the resulting increase in tissue blood flow contribute to the phenomenon of lipid reversal of cardiac toxicity caused by drug overdose.
