This case takes place in Illinois and involves a woman who underwent an emergency C-section. During the delivery of the infant, the OBGYN noted several adhesions which were apparently interfering with the c-section procedure. The OBGYN decided to cut the adhesions in order to facilitate the delivery, at which point the patient began to hemorrhage. There was an attempt to stem the bleed and the patient was transferred to the PACU, where surgeons feared she was experiencing an amniotic fluid embolism. She was returned to the OR where a full hysterectomy was performed. Following this surgery, the patient continued to bleed, and the doctors were unable to locate the source of bleeding in time to save her life.
