Abstract:

We are presenting a case of a 30-year-old pregnant lady with Para2 Gravida2. She underwent an earlier lower segment caesarean section (LSCS) for her first baby. Her second delivery was also through LSCS but had excessive bleeding and hence subtotal hysterectomy was done. During this procedure, patient went in for an “on table” cardiac arrest. She was resuscitated and referred to our hospital in post cardiac arrest status for post-resuscitation care. We share our post- resuscitation care experience of this patient.
