A method for one-lung anesthesia in which a 14 Fogarty emboiectomy catheter is used to occlude a main bronchus is described. The method is quick, simple, effective and reliable. It eliminates most of the problems which occurs with the standard technique of using a double-lumen cuffed endotracheal tube. During one-lung mannual ventilation, anesthesia was maintained with ketamine I.V. infusion and pancuronium. Before and after one-lung anesthesia, halothane-nitrous oxide-oxygen and pancuronium were used. No significant problems regarding blood pressure, pulse rate, EKG and arterial blood gases were encountered in 3 lung cancer cases who had a pneumonectomy, a lung biopay and a left lower lobectomy.
