A news about the death of a pregnant woman in Hunan has been heated. We have no idea who is right or wrong. We only know that the cause of the death of a pregnant woman is amniotic fluid embolism. It is estimated that many expectant mothers did not know the word before. The actual mortality rate of amniotic fluid embolism is very high. In fact, in the process of childbirth, there is more than one terrifying high complication with high mortality. Today, I will take you to understand the six most unwanted and least encountered high complications of childbirth.
Amniotic fluid embolism
Maternal deaths occurred in Xiangtan Maternal and Child Health Hospital in Hunan Province. The results of Xiangtan County Health Bureau showed that the maternal deaths were due to amniotic fluid embolism, which was ineffective after 9 hours of rescue. “Amniotic fluid embolism” seems to become a maternal ghost gate.
Amniotic fluid embolism refers to a mother’s pulmonary artery being obstructed by amniotic fluid. During delivery, amniotic fluid suddenly enters the maternal blood circulation, causing acute pulmonary embolism, anaphylactic shock, disseminated intravascular coagulation, renal failure or sudden death. This is a rare complication of childbirth.
Amniotic fluid embolism is one of the most dangerous complications in obstetrics. The incidence of amniotic fluid embolism ranges from 4/100,000 to 6/100,000, and the mortality rate is as high as 70-80%. Although the probability of amniotic fluid embolism is low, it is easy to cause maternal death even after treatment. Amniotic fluid embolism occurs mostly during delivery or rupture of membranes, but also after delivery, mostly in full-term labor, but also in mid-term induced labor or curettage, mostly sudden onset and dangerous condition. Because this situation is often unpredictable before delivery, it is necessary to observe the puerpera closely and be more careful in the process of delivery.
After the rupture of the membranes, the puerpera suddenly presented signs of restlessness, chest tightness, dyspnea, cyanosis, rapid heart rate, decreased blood pressure, moist rales in the lungs, shock and coma.
