Abstract:   (5463 Views)
Patients referred to Amir-Alam hospital, affiliated to Tehran University of Medical Sciences, were given anesthesia through two ways inhalationally (by means of sodium thiopenton) and intravenously (halothane+N2O). In this article, we discuss the results obtained from the patients' bronchoscopies. According to our study, inhalational anesthesia have had desirable effects since halothane has a positive inotropic effect, and N2O, due to its quick onset, has a high tendency to combine with halothane. Most of our cases were children who showed a high tolerance during an inhalational anesthesia. The overall mortality rate of intravenous anesthesia was two cases in contrast to that of the inhalational anesthesia which had none. It can be concluded that: 1) Although many cases necessitate bronchoscopy, their results are negative. 2) The incidence of bronchial bleeding, due to foreign bodies, is more in young boys than young girls. 3) There seems to be no difference in bronchoscopic results in different months of a year
