At 16:00 on November 6,
Dr. Ye Luju's cell phone suddenly rang.
"Dr. Ye, there is postpartum hemorrhage in the mother. Suspected of amniotic fluid embolism. To rescue, come to the delivery room!"
"Okay, I'll be right here!"
This tense scene turned out to be the first aid drill for maternal amniotic fluid embolism carried out by Lishui Maternal and Child Health Hospital.
In order to further enhance the first-aid and collaboration capabilities of the medical staff of our hospital for amniotic fluid embolism, and to improve the rescue success rate of amniotic fluid embolism, the medical education department of our hospital organized obstetrics, nursing department, anesthesiology department, operating room, laboratory, special inspection Departments such as Department of Pharmacy, Department of Pharmacy, Department of Internal Medicine, Department of Sense, Quality Control Department, and Logistics Center jointly carried out the first-aid exercise.
The exercise officially started at 16:00 in the afternoon.
A half-hour after the birth of the pregnant woman Li, the chest tightness, cough, and shortness of breath suddenly appeared, and the pressure on the bottom of the palace was 400ml. The nurse called the doctor into the delivery room for emergency treatment.
The first-line obstetrician Ye Luju initially diagnosed the maternal as amniotic fluid embolism. She was immediately given oxygen mask, open venous channels, ECG monitoring, emergency blood tests, etc., and called second-line doctor Xie Ni. After Dr. Xie Ni was diagnosed with amniotic fluid embolism, the emergency plan for amniotic fluid embolism was started urgently, and a "hard battle" was launched. Director Chen Chunlai, the third-line doctor, quickly called the rescue team in the hospital, and everyone quickly arrived and performed their duties to participate in the rescue orderly.
In the meantime, the "patient" 's condition continued to worsen, cardiac arrest, and after successful cardiopulmonary resuscitation, the rescue team immediately performed hysterectomy. The entire rescue process was methodical, tense and orderly, and was strictly implemented in accordance with the amniotic fluid embolization rescue process. The doctors and nurses and all departments worked closely together to achieve the desired results.
After the exercise, a review meeting was held on site. Deputy Dean Wang Yi, Deputy Dean Cheng Xiaoyan, Special Assistant to Dean Lei Yongliang, and the heads of the Nursing Department, Quality Control Department, Medical Education Department, Internal Medicine Department, and Sensing Department of the Department respectively analyzed the emergency rescue drill and pointed out the deficiencies. And give suggestions for improvement to further optimize and standardize the rescue process.
Dean Zhang Xiangdong said that although the incidence of amniotic fluid embolism was extremely low, it was very dangerous. Our hospital is responsible for a large proportion of childbirth. We must have high standards, strict requirements, and proficient grasp of first aid skills such as amniotic fluid embolism in obstetrics and critical care to better protect the safety of mothers and infants. He hopes that in the next step, through continuous drills and training, the team's first aid awareness and rescue capacity will be effectively improved, the collaboration between departments will be strengthened, the standardized rescue process will be proficient, and the overall rescue capacity of the hospital will be improved. Safety and medical and health security provide strong guarantees. (Liu Hualing, Party Office Propaganda Section)
