Amniotic fluid is the fluid that surrounds the fetus, which is the liquid environment that helps the fetus develop during pregnancy pregnant. Amniotic fluid plays an extremely important role such as helping to protect the fetus from injury while in the womb, being a sterile environment to avoid special infections in the lungs, providing nutrition for the fetus, and helping to keep the fetus healthy. The fetus has a stable body temperature. Amniotic fluid is mostly of fetal origin, as the repeated excretion of urine produces the right amount of amniotic fluid.
oligohydramnios is a phenomenon where the amount of amniotic fluid is less than the normal physiological level, when the amniotic index AFI is less than 5cm and the amniotic membrane is intact. There are potential risks of oligohydramnios such as lung hypoplasia, umbilical cord compression, club limbs, etc. Recently, doctors at Hanoi Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital have successfully saved the life of a critical 28-week oligohydramnios. because of this phenomenon.

Previously, during a routine antenatal check-up at a provincial hospital, pregnant woman LTH (23 years old) was informed by doctors that the fetus had oligohydramnios at 28 weeks. The uterus was tight, the fetus was lying down as if it was a pregnancy. With vacuum suction, she was advised to actively terminate the pregnancy because the fetus was too small, only 650g.
Very sad, but her family did not give up, she went to Hanoi Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital to find a glimmer of hope. Here, she met Dr. BSCKI. Nguyen Thi Sim – In charge of the Fetal Intervention Unit of Hanoi Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital. The doctor directly examined, consulted and consulted to perform emergency amniotic fluid transfusion for pregnant women within the same day.
After the amniotic fluid transfer was successful, Ms. H was shown an ultrasound by the doctor: the fetus was moving normally, the circulatory system was working again. After 5 days, the fetal health was completely normal, the mother’s health was stable, so she was discharged home.
Due to the distance, pregnant women only continue to have ultrasounds and examinations at the provincial hospital, and then send the results to the doctors of the Fetal Intervention Unit (Hanoi Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital) for further advice.
Ms. H. gave birth successfully after many months of anxiety.
At 34 weeks, when the fetus showed signs of slow growth, they took the car over 300km to Hanoi Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital for examination. During treatment the baby continued to gain weight. By the 37th week, when the fetus shows signs of running out of amniotic fluid again, the pregnant woman is assigned to hospital for an active cesarean section to ensure the health of the fetus.
Dr. Doctor Nguyen Thi Sim and the team of doctors at Hanoi Obstetrics and Gynecology Hospital performed a cesarean section for the patient. As a result, a baby boy weighing 2,500g was born crying at 5:40pm on April 23, 2022 in the joy of doctors and family. Currently, both mother and child are in good health and have been discharged home.
