  • Amniotic Fluid Embolism

    Amniotic fluid embolism (AFE) is a rare obstetric emergency in which amniotic fluid, fetal cells, hair, or other debris enters the mother's blood stream via the placental bed of the uterus and trigger an allergic reaction. This reaction then results in cardiorespiratory (heart and lung) collapse and coagulopathy. Amniotic fluid embolism (AFE) is a pregnancy complication that causes life-threatening conditions, such as heart failure. It can affect you, your baby, or both of you.

    The first stage of AFE usually includes cardiac arrest and rapid respiratory failure. Cardiac arrest occurs when your heart stops working and you lose consciousness and stop breathing.Several factors have been associated with amniotic fluid embolism syndrome. They include precipitous or tumultuous labor, advanced maternal age, cesarean and instrumental delivery, placenta previa and abruption, grand multiparity (≥5 live births or stillbirths), cervical lacerations, fetal distress, eclampsia, and medical induction of labor

    AFE is a diagnosis of exclusion and is made clinically. It requires a high index of suspicion on clinical criteria, as above. Symptoms occurring during delivery with high likelihood of collapse and incipient disseminated intravascular coagulation.International comparison shows that the mortality rate in British Columbia is among the best in the world, lower than Japan (8 per 100 000), Norway (11 per 100 000), the US (14 per 100 000), Russia (45 per 100 000), or Mexico (60 per 100 000). Although improvements are still possible, we can be proud of the current rates in this province.
