Standard treatments against severe acute asthma can be insufficient and need salvation treatments, such as isoflurane delivery. These treatments have not been much assessed and could lead to unrecognized side-effects. We report the case of a young man who suffered from intracranial hypertension associated with severe hypercapnia during the delivery of isoflurane via the system AnaConDa™ or Anaesthetic Conserving Device™ (ACD) (Sedama Medical). The rising of PaCO(2) appears to be linked to an ACD-dependent increase in the dead space.
