Abstract: Levy, based on his animal experiments. attributes chloroform death to
ventricular fibrillation. He rejects Embley’s contention that vagal
inhibition is the cause of syncope, and points out that intermittent
light chloroform anesthesia is more dangerous to the patient than
overdosage or asphyxia.
Abstract: In the foreword, Arthur Cushny lauds Levy for his masterful analysis of
fundamental principles of the distribution of chloroform in tissues. He
credits Levy for showing that practical anesthesia depends upon the
principles of basic science, and for teaching practitioners the skills
to prevent the occurrence of chloroform syncope.
