The exact cause of death is not known, but cardiac arrest following an unexpected development of a severe acute asthmatic crisis and subsequent hypoxia is suspected. Proventil can cause immediate allergic reactions in some patients with symptoms of urticaria, angioedema, rashes, bronchospasm and anaphylaxis.

  • Beta-blockers which can not only block the pulmonary effect of Proventil and also cause bronchospasm in asthmatic patients
