Abstract: Aim: Lipid emulsions are promising with regard to the treatment of toxicity by agents of high lipophilic nature. Our objective is to investigate the efficacy of intralipid 20% and calcium administration at different times when symptoms of cardiac toxicity occur during verapamil infusion.
Method: 24 adult male Spraque-Dawley rats were randomly divided into 4 different groups, the control group, calcium group, calcium following 20% intralipid group and concomitant 20% intralipid and calcium group. Following monitoring under ketamine anesthesia, all groups were administered 37.5 mg kg-1 h-1 verapamil infusion until a 50% decrease occurred in MAPb. At the end of the infusion, verapamil infusion was decreased down to 15 mg kg-1h-1 and the treatment agents predetermined for the groups were administered concomitantly.
Results: There is no statistically significant difference between the administration of 20% intralipid synchronized with calcium or as a pretreatment, but both groups provided a higher survival rate when compared to the other groups.
Conclusions:The administration of calcium alone in verapamil toxicity is not sufficient; when calcium and 20% intralipid are administered together, there is no difference between the administration of lipid and calcium concomitantly and the administration of lipid prior to calcium (Tab. 1, Fig. 2, Ref. 23).
