Treatment of Status Asthmaticus With Halothane

JAMA. 1984;251(20):2688-2689. doi:10.1001/jama.1984.03340440046026
Abstract

We describe two patients with status asthmaticus who did not improve with conventional treatment and remained severely bronchospastic when mechanically ventilated. Each had a prompt bronchodilator response to the administration of halothane. We discuss the potential benefits and the possible risks of this mode of therapy.
