Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We determined the causal pathways of pregnancy-related deaths over a 16-year period. Pregnancy-induced hypertension was the chief contributor to our high maternal mortality rate of 36.9 per 100 000 births. Anaesthetic-related deaths were due to a combination of Mendelson's syndrome and faulty intubation technique. An improvement in the health-management system to identify high-risk mothers who need intensive emergency care and the availability of experienced personnel for obstetric anaesthesia appear to be indispensable requirements for reducing and minimising adverse maternal outcome in Trinidad.
