Abstract
To elucidate the patterns of acute death, the differences of toxicity of materials
combusted, and histopathologic changes in lung of smoke inhalation injury, a hundred and
ninty-six mice were exposed to the smokes of lauan, plywood, curtain and carpet The rates
of acute death varied with materials combusted; the higher mortality rates were obtained
during the combustion of synthetic fabrics as carpet and curtain than in pyrolysis of lauan and
plywood. The acute increase of carbon monoxide during incomplete combustion and the
injury by the noxious gases are known for the main casuses of acute death in fire accident
The pathologic findings were not specific for the materials, but the edema of pulmonary
interstitium was outstanding, accompanied with alveolar edema, localized atelectasis, congestion
and the hyaline membranes. The water content of lung could be measured quantitatively
by freeze-drying, which fairly correlated with the degree of the interstitial edema. (R=O.835)(P
