Obstetric Critical Care Units

Maternal morbidity and mortality continue to occur despite the vast advances in medical science.

Obstetric Critical Care Units (OCCUs) are medical units that specialise in treating gestational complications that are complex and potentially life-threatening. However, since they are associated with complicated pregnancies, there are a lot of myths surrounding OCCU procedures that can deter treatment. Some of them are

OCCUs are referred randomly

No. In fact, your doctor will try all the diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, including second opinions, before recommending admission into an OCCU. They are especially useful for the timely detection of maternal problems and referral to tertiary centres so as to minimise the chances of multiple organ failure and mortality in critically ill obstetric patients

OCCU procedures are very expensive

No. As an specialised medical and surgical intervention that potentially reduces a lot of pain, and is in fact life-saving, the cost of OCCU procedures really works out to be reasonable

OCCUs result in still births

No. In fact, it is a myth that OCCUs are purely mother-focused. In fact, they are life-focused and attempt to reduce both maternal morbidity and mortality as well as still births

Monitoring high-risk pregnancies

OCCUs are the best diagnostic and therapeutic route for complicated pregnancies in women over 35 years old or with complications like respiratory problems

Post-trauma care

OCCUs are also recommended for cases like trauma and accidents where chances of maternal morbidity and mortality are doubled

Other complications

Multiple pregnancies, development of fibroids and other internal complications in the mother may also warrant the specialised care of an OCCU
