Itching and bronchospasm point towards an allergic cause. jerks convulsions cyanosis point towards improper or delayed airway control. Was after intubation {hypertention150to200systolic and pulse 140 to 170/min }the surge of intubation? Since the patient is dead, we can just prevent others from having the same fate. Drug injection intravenously is unlikely. Spinal anaes. is generally very safe if performed skillfully with the proper precautions by a trained physician with proper guidance and adequate resources at his/her disposal.
