Abstract
We describe a 42-year-old woman scheduled for emergency cesarean section wh o had sudden cardiopulmonary arrest just before induction of general anesth esia. Hypermagnesemia, caused by accidental overdose of magnesium sulfate d uring transportation to the operating room, was the primary cause of this l ife-threatening event. Anesthetic management after such events and a brief summary of the literature regarding iatrogenic hypermagnesemia in obstetric patients are provided. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science Inc.
