CPR occurs during pregnancies is a reality. When this happens, it's the most critical situation for the caregivers to manage immediately. A thorough understanding of changes that occur during pregnancy can help in making correct decisions. Although the attention should be on the mother, it is important to remember that another possible life is on the line. The mother is resuscitated in the same way as any other patient, with a few slight adaptations due to the changes that occur during pregnancy. The multidisciplinary team should be involved early in the process to ensure that both the mother and the newborn receive proper care. This article will analyze the risks and concerns during this emergency.
