The purpose of the present study was to assess the effect of intravenously administered 2-chloroprocaine upon uterine artery blood flow velocity (UBFV) in gravid guinea pigs. Ten experiments were performed in ten chronically instrumented animals between 0.7 and 0.9 of timed gestation. Each animal received four solutions of 2-chloroprocaine in random order: 1) 0.67 mg/kg; 2) 1.34 mg/kg; 3) 2.0 mg/kg; and 4) 1.34 mg/kg, with epinephrine 0.2 microgram/kg. Six animals received a fifth solution, 0.2… Expand
