ABSTRACT
Distal paravertebral nerve block is commonly used in the goat as a method of choice for surgical restraint. This study highlights the response to distal paravertebral nerve block using lignocaine HCl in combination with adrenaline in WAD goat Its effects on haematology and physiology were investigated in twelve adult male and female WAD goats that were injected with 6ml of 2% lignocaine HCl, and 2ml deposited at each intervertebral space to block the spinal nerves of the thirteenth thoracic and first and second lumbar vertebrae. The onset and duration of analgesia was assessed. Haematological parameters were measurred at baseline (T0), thirty minutes into analgesia (T30), immediately the analgesia waned (Ti), and 24 hours post-analgesia. The onset of analgesia was 2±1minutes and it lasted for 70±3minutes. The results of physiological values showed a statistically significant (p<0.05) increase in the heart rate. All other measured physiological parameters were elevated although not significantly. Haematological parameters were not significantly elevated.. A significant cardiac response may be of clinical concern in patients with diagnosed cardiac, renal or hepatic insufficiencies. This study also shows that 6ml of lignocaine HCl was adequate to achieve the desired loss of sensitivity within the time-frame.
