Theodore H. Stanley, M. D. Anesthesia and the Lung contains the Refresher Course manuscripts of the presentations of the 34th Annual Postgraduate Course in Anesthesiology which took place at The Cliff Conference Center in Snowbird, Utah, February 17-21, 1989. The chapters reflect recent advances in the diagnosis, pre-, intra-, and postoperative anesthetic management of patients with lung disease, presenting for pulmonary and non-pulmonary surgery. They also deal with ventilation-perfusion issues, the lung as a metabolic organ, the effects of anesthesia on pulmonary mechanics and pulmonary blood flow. In addition there are chapters that will focus around hypoxia; regional differences in the lung; pulmonary surfactant; recent advances in the understanding of pulmonary edema; high altitude disease; anesthesia and the control of breathing; recent developments in oximetry; instrumentation designed to measure pulmonary oxygen tension, P0 and PC0 trans 2 2 cutaneously; differential lung ventilation; reactive airways; septic shock; the adult respiratory distress syndrome and numerous aspects of ventilatory support. The purposes of the textbook are to 1) act as a reference for the anesthesiologists attending the meeting, and 2) serve as a vehicle to bring many of the latest concepts in anesthesiology to others within a short time of the formal presenta tion. Each chapter is a brief but sharply focused glimpse of the interests in anesthesia expressed at the conference.Usually, one probe of each pair was mounted on the ear, the other on a finger. ...
