Abstract

Based on the tail-flick response to noxious thermal stimuli, we determined in the present study that effective antinociception could be achieved in adult male Sprague-Dawley rats 15 min after intravenous infusion of propofol at 60 mg/kg/h. Simultaneous power spectral analysis of the electroencephalographic (EEG) and systemic arterial pressure signals further revealed a concomitant depression of the activity of all EEG frequency bands (δ, θ, α, β), alongside hypotension, negative inotropic and chronotropic actions, and attenuated baroreceptor reflex and vasomotor activity. These effects were congruent with a plasma concentration of propofol in the arterial blood of 1.70 ± 0.13 μg/ml, as determined by high-performance liquid chromatography.
