Fifty patients with acute myocardial infarction were treated with lignocaine after developing ventricular tachyarrhythmias.25 patients received 75 mg as an intravenous bolus, immediately followed by an infusion of 2 mg/min and 25 patients received intramuscular treatment (300 mg.) There was no significant difference in the occurrence of tachyarrhythmia in the two groups for one hour, showing that, the dose of intramuscular lignocaine used was therapeutically effective against ventricular arrhythmias during myocardial infraction.
