OBJECTIVE To determine the effects of IV administration of lidocaine on thermal antinociception in conscious cats. ANIMALS 6 cats. PROCEDURE 2 experiments were performed in each cat (interval of at least 2 months). In experiment 1, lidocaine pharmacokinetics were determined for each conscious cat following IV administration of a bolus of lidocaine (2 mg/kg). In experiment 2, data from experiment 1 were used to calculate appropriate doses of lidocaine that would achieve predetermined plasma… CONTINUE READING
