Anesthetic managment of bronchial asthmatic patient requires understanding of the patho- physiology of the disease and the drug interaction with anesthetics and the drugs related to the treatment. A 53-year old male patient with hemorrhagic pancreatitis had been operated for exploratory laparotomy. He had history of the bronchial asthma. After the operation was completed, patient was transfered to recovery room after extubation. Sudden airway obstruction signs and patients agitation were noted 5 minutes after arrival in the recovery room. Asthmatic attack was relieved with salbutamol, corticosteroid, aminophylline, and isoproterenol intravenously. We have experienced one case of severe asthmatic attack in the postoperative recovery room. We report this case and review the anesthetic managements and drug interactions.
