Cord Prolapse

Author(s)
Sathiyalatha Sarathi
Abstract
Cord prolapse is one of the life threatening obstetrical emergencies during child birth. The fetus is at the risk of developing anoxia due to acute placental insufficiency from the moment the cord is prolapsed. The incidence of cord prolapse is about 1 in 3 hundred deliveries. It occurs mostly in multiparous women. When diagnosis of cord prolapse is made the obstetrician and midwives calls for urgent assistance to prevent complications to the mother and the fetus. The health care professionals must also take judicious judgement and prompt treatment to save the life of mother and fetus.
