PMID:  16116863     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Amniotic fluid embolus remains among the most fatal obstetrical emergencies, with an extremely high maternal and fetal death rate. There is no way to predict who is at risk for this often catastrophic malady. Increased awareness by the medical community of the signs and symptoms of AFE may allow us to provide earlier aggressive treatment to these patients. Early recognition and treatment remain the best way to start early aggressive intervention aimed at successful outcomes for both mother and child.
