Abstract:
The study was planned to be undertaken with the objective to evaluate the variation in body temperature following blind, peripheral nerve stimulator and ultrasound guided RUMM block using 2% lignocaine in calves. Twenty four calves were randomly distributed among four groups with six animals each- Groups A (anatomical landmark approach), B (nerve stimulator guidance), C (ultrasound guidance) and D (ultrasound-cum-peripheral nerve stimulator guidance). Rectal temperature was recorded by an inbuilt sensor of the multipara monitor before, immediately after drug administration and then at definite time intervals for a total of 180 minutes in all the groups. Data collected was subjected to statistical analysis following standard statistical procedures. In all the groups, there was a non-significant (p>0.05) increase in the body temperature at 1 minute post-procedure. Further, a non-significantly varying pattern of body temperature was observed until the end of the observation. The results of the study indicate that the use of 2% lidocaine via different techniques for RUMM blockade in calves did not alter the body temperature. Therefore, the body temperature cannot be taken as a reliable predictor of regional block success or failure.
