We present a case in which an anemic patient with religious objections to blood transfusion experienced three episodes of severe myocardial ischemia during the perioperative period. The first episode of ischemia was successfully treated by discontinuing isoflurane and resolving the hypotension. The second and third episodes were successfully treated by heart rate control with esmolol and neostigmine.
