Abstract - The case of a positive outcome in hyperacute amniotic fluid embolism
Akylbek Tussupkaliyev, Svetlana Tuitebayeva, Andrey Gaiday, Ulbolsyn Kairbaeva


To date, in order to better understand the mechanisms for the development of terminal states associated with pregnancy, and to correctly assess the allowable costs in the organization of observation and intensive treatment, it is increasingly taking into account and analyzing not only deaths, but also cases of successful elimination from a critical condition, so called “near-miss cases”. The given clinical case can be attributed to those. We observed a case of a positive outcome with an embolism of amniotic fluid of the lightning form, accompanied by cardiopulmonary shock with a double cardiac arrest, DIC - syndrome, postresuscitation disease. As practice shows, one of the most effective opportunities to shorten the way to success, is to use the experience of those, who have already traveled this way.
