The effects of the intravenous administration of cocaine (0.05-5.0 mg/kg) on body temperature, heart rate, respiration rate and several unconditioned behavioral categories were ascertained in unanesthetized male rhesus monkeys. Statistically significant increases in body temperature, respiration rate and heart rate occurred only after the largest dosage… (More)
OBJECTIVES The Angle Labor Pain Questionnaire (A-LPQ) is a new, condition-specific, multidimensional psychometric instrument that measures the most important dimensions of women's childbirth pain experiences using 5 subscales: The Enormity of the Pain, Fear/Anxiety, Uterine Contraction Pain, Birthing Pain, and Back Pain/Long Haul. This study assessed the… (More)
BACKGROUND The Angle Labor Pain Questionnaire (A-LPQ) is a new, 22-item multidimensional psychometric questionnaire that measures the 5 most important dimensions of women's childbirth pain experiences using 5 subscales: The Enormity of the Pain, Fear/Anxiety, Uterine Contraction Pain, Birthing Pain, and Back Pain/Long Haul. Previous work showed that the… (More)
BACKGROUND Transmasculine individuals are people who were assigned as female at birth, but identify on the male side of the gender spectrum. They might choose to use and engage their bodies to be pregnant, birth a baby, and chestfeed. This study asked an open research question, "What are the experiences of transmasculine individuals with pregnancy,… (More)
In an earlier study, it was found that a 15-day ip postfeeding session d-amphetamine treatment rendered an apparent "tolerance" to the feed intake suppressant effects of fenfluramine. The purpose of the present study was to determine if such d-amphetamine treatment altered the disposition of fenfluramine in a way which might account for this decrement in… (More)
A procedure is described which allows chronic dosing and blood collection from awake monkeys. The procedure involves only minor surgical anesthesia and allows the same vein of the animal to be used several different times with home-cage recuperation periods intervening between sequential chronic catheterizations.
Norcocaine was administered intravenously (0.05, 0.5, 5.0 mg/kg) to three chaired unanesthetized male rhesus monkeys and to three chaired male cynomolgus monkeys. Respiration rate, heart rate and rectal temperature were monitored. In the rhesus monkeys tachycardia and hyperventilation resulted. However, similar qualitative and quantitative changes were not… (More)
