The two pregnant women who left the home of the Intensive Care Unit of the Institute of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care of the University of Szeged between December 2021 and February 2022 as a result of severe symptoms caused by the coronavirus epidemic staff. The line was followed in April 2022 by a third mother from Szeged, who was treated in a similar way in the health care institution. He was released home after more than 100 days.

“It was a great pleasure for all the staff in our department to be able to let the third mother, who was treated with an artificial lung, go home recently. The mother was coronavirus when her child was born in December 2021, and her symptoms worsened thereafter. He was first admitted to the COVID-Intensive Care Unit, but his condition continued to deteriorate despite professional and careful treatment. The expectant mother was therefore transferred to the AITI, Intensive Care Unit of SZTE SZAKK, where we performed an lung treatment for 70 days using an ECMO machine. After that, it took her a few weeks to breathe, and then we prepared for long days to wake her up gradually. ” He recalled what had happened Prof. Dr. Babik BarnaDirector of the Institute of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care, University of Szeged.

In connection with the unusual cases, the professor emphasized that in addition to the professional challenge, it was both spiritually uplifting and stressful that all three of the mothers treated with the lung gave birth to their third child just before they became seriously ill. He said it was also a wonderful experience for the healing staff as the moms found their lives back and they turned their phones around and marveled at their youngest baby, whom they could embrace for the first time in their lives when they returned home.

Saving the lives and health of expectant mothers is also a professionally important part of the stories. The cases support the training of the doctors of the Albert Szent-Györgyi Clinical Center of the University of Szeged, the expertise of their cardiotechnicians, and the extremely dedicated, professional and exemplary work of their nurses.

With the treatments, SZTE SZAKK was able to increase its regional role. Prof. Dr. Babik Barna emphasized that without excellent individual performance integrated into teamwork, it would have been impossible to successfully cure these very complex cases professionally and logistically.

“Once again, I consider it important to highlight and thank the effective collaboration between several professions, Anesthesiology and Intensive Care, Cardiac Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Radiology, Laboratory Medicine, Clinical Microbiology, and the National Ambulance Service.He summed up his thoughts on the cases Prof. Dr. Babik Barna.
