Desun Hospital, a leading healthcare institution, recently addressed a critical case of Preeclampsia, highlighting the urgent need for increased awareness and early identification of this serious blood pressure condition during pregnancy. Ms. Sujata Ghosh, a 28-year-old resident of Behala, was admitted to Desun Hospital exhibiting symptoms indicative of Preeclampsia, including shortness of breath, high blood pressure, and disorientation. Upon admission, her blood pressure measured a concerning 190/110, indicating a severe medical emergency.

Despite receiving 100% oxygen, Ms. Ghosh’s saturation levels failed to stabilize, prompting immediate action from the medical team. She was promptly transferred from the emergency department to the operating theatre due to acute pulmonary edema(fluid in the lungs), a dangerous complication associated with preeclampsia. Under the expert care of Dr. Ayan Mukhopadhyay, Gynaecologist, alongside Dr. Mohit Kharbanda, Critical Care Specialist, Ms. Ghosh underwent an emergency cesarean delivery to ensure the safety of both mother and child.

Following the delivery, Ms. Ghosh’s condition continued to deteriorate, necessitating ventilation support and subsequent transfer to the intensive care unit (ICU). Immidiately after shifting to she experienced a cardiac arrest, enduring approximately ten minutes without a heartbeat. Through the tireless efforts of the medical team, including chest compressions and medication administration, Ms. Ghosh was successfully resuscitated. Despite encountering seizures and dangerously low blood pressure, she gradually regained stability with ongoing medical support and was discharged home in a totally functional and normal condition with her baby.

Dr. Mohit Kharbanda, Critical Care Specialist at Desun Hospital, emphasized the importance of early recognition of preeclampsia, stating, “People are not very much aware of this disease, and cannot often identify the symptoms. But this disease can be deadly. Severe PreEclampsia and Eclmapsia can cause of death of mpther and baby. One should identify its symptoms early.”

Preeclampsia, characterized by swelling of legs, elevated blood pressure and protein loss in urine during pregnancy, poses significant risks to maternal and fetal health if left untreated. The successful treatment of Ms. Sujata Ghosh’s case underscores the critical need for prompt intervention and specialized care in managing this condition.

Desun Hospital remains committed to raising awareness about preeclampsia and providing comprehensive care to expectant mothers, ensuring the best possible outcomes for both mother and baby.
