Anaesthesia in the Management of Bronchial Carcinoma

  • Hilary Howells
  • Brian Porter


The practice of anaesthesia within the management of bronchial carcinoma has developed in parallel with advances in other specialities. The most important change has been the adoption and increasing sophistication of controlled ventilation. Improvements in the fields of drugs, notably neuromuscular blocking agents, and pain relief have also contributed.
