Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This study analyzed 89 cases of maternal death following infections. The overall maternal mortality rate in infection was 5.9%. The maternal death rate is significantly related to parity but higher age group mothers survived better. Septicaemic shock and cardiopulmonary arrest were the major terminal causes of maternal death. The risk factors for the high maternal death following infections were examined and preventive measures recommended.
