Dr. Lynch has published an article “Lipid Emulsion Rescue of Amniotic Fluid EmbolismInduced Cardiac Arrest: A Case Report” in the December issue of A&A Case Reports.

You can read the abstract here:

Amniotic fluid embolism (AFE) is a rare and often fatal complication that occurs in the peripartum period. We present a patient with an AFE who developed disseminated intravascular coagulation and cardiovascular collapse who may have benefitted from intravascular lipid emulsion rescue. This is the first published case in which lipid emulsion was a part of the successful treatment of AFE.
