Emergency Management of Placental Abruption
Placental abruption is a serious medical emergency where the placenta detaches from the uterine wall before delivery, potentially depriving the fetus of oxygen and nutrients. Prompt recognition of placental abruption is crucial for effective emergency management. The main presenting symptom of placental abruption is vaginal bleeding, which may be accompanied by abdominal pain and uterine tenderness. If placental abruption is suspected, immediate medical assistance should be sought. Emergency medical personnel should be informed about the suspected placental abruption and the need for urgent care. The pregnant woman should be transported to a healthcare facility capable of providing appropriate obstetric care and neonatal support. During transportation, the woman should be positioned on her left side to improve blood flow to the fetus. Emergency cesarean section may be required in cases of severe abruption, fetal distress, or maternal instability.
