Two deaths due to isoflurane abuse are reported. One case was a suicide & the other a multiple drug death. A simple headspace gas chromatographic method was used for isoflurane quantitation. A review of the literature did not reveal blood & tissue concentrations of isoflurane. Drug tissue distributions & a discussion of the toxocological findings are presented. (8 refs.)
