Mother and Child are Saved by Desun Hospital in a Fierce Battle Against a Deadly Preeclampsia Crisis

News Desk, News Nation 360 : A critical case of preeclampsia was recently handled by Desun Hospital, a renowned medical facility. This case brought attention to the urgent need for greater awareness and early detection of this dangerous blood pressure condition during pregnancy. The 28-year-old Behala resident, Sujata Ghosh, was admitted to Desun Hospital with symptoms of preeclampsia, such as dyspnea, elevated blood pressure, and confusion. Her blood pressure was alarmingly high at admission—190/110—signalling a serious medical emergency. If treatment for preeclampsia is not received, there are serious risks to the health of both the mother and the foetus. This condition is characterised by swelling of the legs, high blood pressure, and protein loss in the urine. Sujata Ghosh's case was successfully treated, highlighting the vital need for early intervention and specialised care in the management of this condition. She was given 100% oxygen, but her saturation levels did not stabilise, so the medical staff had to act right away. Due to acute pulmonary edoema, or fluid in the lungs, a serious side effect of preeclampsia, she was quickly moved from the emergency room to the operating room. To ensure the safety of the mother and child, she underwent an emergency caesarean delivery under the skilled care of critical care specialists Dr. Mohit Kharbanda and gynaecologist Dr. Ayan Mukhopadhyay. Sujata Ghosh's condition worsened after the delivery, requiring ventilation support and an immediate transfer to the intensive care unit (ICU). She suffered a cardiac arrest as soon as she switched, going without a beat for about ten minutes. She was successfully resuscitated thanks to the medical team's tireless efforts, which included giving her medication and performing chest compressions. She experienced seizures and dangerously low blood pressure, but with continued medical support, she gradually regained stability and was sent home with her infant in a completely normal and functioning state. Dr Mohit Kharbanda, a Critical Care Specialist at Desun Hospital, emphasized the importance of early recognition of preeclampsia and stated that most people are unaware of this illness and frequently struggle to recognise its symptoms. However, this illness can be fatal. Both preeclampsia and eclampsia can be fatal conditions for mothers and babies. Early detection of its symptoms is recommended. Preeclampsia awareness-building and comprehensive care for expectant mothers are still priorities for Deun Hospital, as they guarantee the best outcomes for mother and child.
