The following case report suggests that is is possible to secure complete relief in the severest possible type of bronchial asthma that apparently offers nothing but a prompt fatal outcome, by the use of epinephrine in small doses given intravenously, after the administration of the drug in large quantities hypodermatically in the ordinary manner and after morphia given to the danger point have completely failed. In this case, and in two others of mine of the same type, the procedure was a life saving measure, and it is trusted that its adoption elsewhere in similar cases will prevent protracted suffering
