The effect of ether as a possible antagonist of mediator-effected bronchoconstriction was tested in eight anesthetized, paralyzed, and mechanically ventilated baboons. Ether administered intravenously had no effect on bronchoconstriction caused by acetylcholine, histamine, or phenylephrine administered by the same route, either alone or in combination with propranolol.
