Air embolism during caesarean section.

Abstract

Air embolism is an uncommon cause of cardiovascular collapse in obstetric surgery. A case is presented in which air was introduced through the open venous sinuses of a partially separated placenta during a delivery by caesarean section. The mechanism of death, methods of monitoring for air embolus, and treatment of embolism are discussed.
