    Abstract

    Reports of deaths associated with inhalation of volatile fluorinated hydrocarbons increased dramatically in the late 1960's [1] and, subsequently, several reports have detailed the physiological effects, tissue concentrations, and excretion rates for two of these fluorocarbons: trichlorofluoromethane (F-12) and dichlorodifluoromethane (F-11).
