The worst thing I have seen is a woman came in by medics, 38 weeks pregnant, hypertensive 140s/90s, headache, n/v, proceeded to rapidly become more hypertensive and coded within 5 minutes of being in the ER. We were unable to get her back, emergency c-section performed (INSANE!!) and baby coded. NICU got baby back, rushed to the NICU. Pt's husband sat with pt for hours in the trauma room after her death. Tragic!
And about 1 month prior to that, same thing, except pt was 28 weeks pregnant, brought in after witnessed collapse, coded in field, brought in still coding, emergent C-section but baby did not make it.
