  • REMAINING ALIVE AFTER AMNIOTIC Fluid Embolism: A CASE REPORT
    , 2020
    Co-Authors: Reyyan Özcan, Ayhan Sucak

    Abstract:

    Amnion Fluid Embolism (AFE) is a rare but catastrophic complication of pregnancy. Its incidence varies from 1:8000 to 1:80.000 and the mortality rate is about 6186%. Neonatal survival reaches 40-70% Our case was a healthy, 36 year old multigravida at 39 weeks gestation hospitalized for induction of labor, which developed AFE in the active phase of labor. Initial symptom was acute and severe hypotension, followed by collapse of peripheral circulation, cyanosis and acute respiratory failure. The patient underwent an urgent cesarean section with the survival of neurologically intact fetus but complicated with severe hemorrhage and DIC.Despite of severe coagulopathy, the mother was discharged from the hospital at the end of one week. Amniotic Fluid Embolism is a very complicated problem, difficult to manage. Complete management of AFE requires qualified, experienced and multidisciplinary physicians.

  • Major Pulmonary Disorders Leading Intensive Care Unit Admission in Pregnancy
    Gynecology Obstetrics and Reproductive Medicine, 2008
    Co-Authors: Ezgi Ozyilmaz

    Abstract:

    Respiratory insufficiency is one of the most frequent causes of intensive care unit (ICU) admissions among obstetric patients. The challenges faced in the treatment of this patient population are even greater due to the fact that there are two young lives to be saved simultaneously: mother and fetus. Any treatment which may be the best choice for the mother may adversely affect the fetus. The aim of this review is to summarize the reasons and the management of the most common pulmonary disorders requiring ICU admissions in pregnancy for the obstetrician. In the spectrum of this review the most common reasons of respiratory failure such as bronchial asthma, pulmonary Embolism, Amnion Fluid Embolism and pneumonia will be discussed. Optimal management for all of the disorders requires early identification and treatment of the respiratory failure, stabilizing the hemodynamics, improve oxygenation and close fetal and maternal monitoring.
