Central nervous system is one of the major tissues that are affected by the hypoxemia during acute asthmatic attack. Electroencephalograms (EEG) were recorded in 16 young adults with bronchial asthma. No case had hypoxemia (PaO2>70 mmHg) or acute attack of asthma. Eight cases (50%) demonstrated pathological EEG recording. Of these, 4 cases had generally low amplitude and other 4 cases had different pathological EEG recordings. It was observed significant relationship between pathological EEG recordings and severity of bronchial asthma.

Key words: Bronchial Asthma, Hypoxemia, Electroencephalogram
