  • Successful resuscitation during fetal surgery JOURNAL OF PEDIATRIC SURGERY Graf, J. L., Paek, B. W., Albanese, C. T., Farrell, J. A., KITTERMAN, J. A., Jennings, R. W., Harrison, M. R. 2000; 35 (9): 1388-1389


    After in utero resection of a sacrococcygeal teratoma coupled with a transfusion of packed red blood cells, a 23-week-gestation fetus had bradycardia. Chest compressions were begun and epinephrine, atropine, and sodium bicarbonate were given, while the fetus remained bathed in warm saline. After 3 rounds of drugs, and just before withdrawing support, the fetal heart resumed beating and normal cardiac function. Based on to this case, the authors developed a resuscitation protocol for fetal surgery.
