Abstract

SUMMARY: On the basis of certain fundamental requirements, nitrous oxide is presented as a suitable agent for use for anesthesia in patients receiving thoracoplasty. By individualized preparation of the patient with barbiturates, morphine and scopolamine, adequate oxygenation of the patient is possible during nitrous oxide anesthesia, thus eliminating the principle objection to the use of this agent.
Clinical results in 73 patients receiving n total of 148 stages of thoracoplasty are presented.
