A prospective tubing of tracheal tubing in view of general anesthia was performed in 441 adults undergoing scheduled surgery. Before surgery, the anesthesists and ENT specialists tried to independently predict the cases of difficult tubing, according to different criteria. Tubing actually was difficult in 38 patients (8.6รน) instead of the 21 (55.2%) expected by the ENT specialists and/or the anesthesists. These difficulties were solved by bronchoscopy, which allowed tubing to be performed with a guide-probe (3 cas), by scheduled fiberendoscopy (6), tracheotomy (1), nasotracheal tubing (1), spontaneous ventilation (2), and orotracheal tubing in 25 cases...

The effects of an anesthetic agent on lung tumor induction in noninbred Syrian golden hamsters were investigated after intratracheal instillation of a benzo[a]pyrene-ferric oxide mixture. Inhalation anesthesia with ether or methoxyflurane was accomplished with a closed recirculatory system that allowed a short induction time for anesthesia and a good control over the concentration of anesthetic. This type of anesthetic induction was compared with systemic induction by Brevital. Survival rates during the 10 weekly instillations were least for the Brevital-treated group and greatest for the methoxyflurane-treated group...
