Asthma involves intermittent episodes of bronchospasm associated with wheezing and dyspnes and asymptomatic period. Many drugs and anesthetic agents can affect bronchomotor tone and asthmatic patients requiring anesthesia are at higher risk than nonasthmatics. The anesthetic management of the asthmatic patient continues to present a challenge to the clinical anesthesiologis, despite increased knowledge and better understanding of the pathogenesis of bronchial asthma and the availability of safer and more effective anesthetic agents and methods. We have experienced status asthmaticus during spinal anesthesia for Cesarian section of a chronic asthma patient. We report the case and review the relevant literature.
