1.  Jaundice after Repeated Exposure to Halothane: An Analysis of Reports to the Committee on Safety of Medicines 
British Medical Journal  1974;1(5896):5-10.
Analysis of data derived from 130 reports of jaundice occurring after anaesthesia with halothane showed a significant relation between the number of exposures to this anaesthetic and the rapidity with which jaundice develops after exposure. This is considered to provide strong evidence of a cause-effect relationship between the use of halothane and jaundice. Out of 114 patients with complete anaesthetic histories 94 (82%) had been exposed more than once; of those so exposed 80% had been anaesthetized with halothane more than once within 28 days. Altogether 66 (51%) of the 130 patients died.

2.  Post-halothane Jaundice in Relation to Previous Administration of Halothane 
British Medical Journal  1971;3(5765):18-22.
The time interval since previous anaesthesia was compared in a surgical population in South Wales and in patients who developed jaundice after halothane. There was a significant difference in the pattern of time interval since previous general anaesthetics in the surgical population and in those patients who developed jaundice after halothane. In the group who developed jaundice there was an “excess” of patients who had had a previous halothane anaesthetic within four weeks. Halothane should if possible be avoided in patients who have had it before, particularly if this was within the previous four weeks. In the case of repeat halothane anaesthetics within four weeks, the risk seems to lie between 1 in 6,000 and 1 in 22,000.

3.  The Anaesthetist and Intensive Care 
British Medical Journal  1969;2(5658):683-684.
Intensive care and its development is part of an evolutionary process in the general organization of hospital medical practice. No new disease process is involved, and this alone should be sufficient to support our view that intensive care does not call for the creation of a new specialty. The experience, skill, and knowledge of anaesthetists qualify them to fill vital roles in intensive care, but it is of paramount importance that in doing so they should neither neglect nor abdicate from their own special field of medical work from which their unique expertise derives.
