Thing is, with ruptured membranes ..I don't BELUEVE that's,possible

Also she's worried the AB meds,bad for the baby .

If mom dies..baby is,dead and this poor child already dying ..
Most likely the cause of the sepsis .

The invstigative report on Savita's Death is here: http://cdn.thejournal.ie/media/2013/06/savita...
The Causal factors of her death are listed as follows:
Key Causal Factor 1:
Inadequate assemssemnt and monitoring that would have enabled the clinical team to recognize & respond to the signs that the patint's condition was deteriarating due to infection associated w/ a failure to devise & follow a plan of care for this patient that was stisfoctorily cognisant of the facts that:
- The most liekly cuase of the patient's inevitable miscarriage was infection and
- The risk of infection and sepsis increased wtih time following admission and especiallyfollowing the spontaneious rupture of the patient's membranes
Key Causal Factor 2:
Failure to offer all management options to a ptient experiencing inevitable miscarriage ofa n early second trimester pregnancy where the risk to the mother increased w/ time from time that embraines were ruptured.
Key Causal Factor 3:
Non adherence to clinical guidelines related to the prompt and effective management of sepsis, severe sepsis aand septic shock when it was diagnaosed.
_________
Ultimately, each physician (and nurse) expected that the others were following up on the blood test taken when Savita was admitted to the hospital. Her white blood cell count was elevated (indicating infection). They went several days assuming no infection (she even vomited twice).
By the time they diagnosed Savita w/ an infection (E. Coli infection of the amniotic sacs) it had spread to her blood stream(sepsis).
They began antibiotics too late - and had to change them after finding out which bacteria was involved. She declined very quickly and ultimately died of cardiac failure.
Had the infection been treated when localized, it's unlikely Savita would have ended up w/ sepsis and septic shock.
If nothing else, it makes an excellent case for a lawsuit.

Why didn't they ask to have their baby delivered in an emergency situation vs aborting?

Also from that report. This was the THIRD time they asked for an abortion, when it was well known that there would be no viable baby:
"O&G Consultant 1 stated that the patient and her husband were emotional and upset when
told that a miscarriage was inevitable. The consultant stated that the patient and her
husband enquired about the possibility of using medication to induce miscarriage as they
indicated that they did not want a protracted waiting time when the outcome of miscarriage,
was inevitable.
At interview, O&G Registrar doctor 2 stated that the plan was to check the fetal heart and
that the patient had asked on the 23rd of October about termination.
O&G Consultant 1 stated that the patient and her husband were advised of Irish law in
relation to this. At interview the consultant stated “Under Irish law, if there’s no evidence of
risk to the life of the mother, our hands are tied so long as there’s a fetal heart”. The
consultant stated that if risk to the mother was to increase a termination would have been
possible, but that it would be based on actual risk and not a theoretical risk of infection “we
can’t predict who is going to get an infection”.

Morally and ethically,it is wrong to kill another's life,deliberately to so call "save" another. That baby should have been delivered,worst case scenario. The wo.an died from lack of treatment. Too late treatment is what killed her,not her baby.

If you and your newborn are both starving to death,do you have a right to eat all the food left so that you don't die?. Realistically,if you die,baby dies ,right?. So,you could argue that too. You wouldn't do that. Your heart would tell you to save both no matter what.

So you think that even if they had gotten the blood test ..seen sepsis
They should NOT have given her antibiotics because it might hurt
The ALREADY DYING BABY..That was probably the CAUSE of the sepsis??
Obviously they could mot save that baby Knit ..
Going only on the KNOWN may be supposed facts ..the baby dying in the womb was the most likely cause of the sepsis
ESPECIALLY GOING BY NR AND HIS "FACTS" ..it was in the AMNIOTIC FLUID
THEY FOUND THE SEPSIS.
And she was miscarrying.
Well your way certainly would not have sAved anyone ..THRY have her NO.MEDS to hurt that baby ..happy??
Rose: "The DYING BABY was the most likely cause of the sepsis"

E. Coli infection of the chorion and amnion membranes (Chorioamnionitis) was causing the miscarriage. The baby was not causing the infection.

Had physicians looked at blood-test results when admitted to the hospital, they would have seen Savita had elevated white blood cell count (indicating infection).

Everyone assumed somebody else had analyzed the test results, so they continued on as though no infection was present. Meanwhile, the infection spread to the blood (SEPSIS). By the time the physicians diagnosed her w/ an infection, it was already in the blood stream.

Intentionally killing the baby would not treat the infection in the blood. Targeted antiobiotics treat infection in the blood. Infection was diagnosed late, and Sepsis had a stronghold before antiobiotics could control it. Likewise, it takes time to find out which bacteria is involved so that the most effective antiobiotic can be used.

Rose: "NR had me with sepsis in the amniotic fluid"

E. Coli infection of membranes...that eventually spread to the blood (i.e. Sepsis).

Rose: "Of course he also cited a surgery ?????? Yesterday ."

The type of E. Coli infection Savita had is commonly acquired in a hostpital/health care facility. I didn't realize Savita came to the hospital already having an e. coli infection. That's why I predicted she acquired it during surgery after admitted.

Infection of the membranes (amnion & chorion) can happen from bacteria introduced into the vagina during a vaginal exam (more so late in pregnancy).

You can believe the sky is red ..I really don't care .
I am NOT for abortion But I certainly am for proper treatment in a hospital .
And IF INDEED SEPSIS IN A WOMB IS FROM A DYING BABY ..they both will die if the miscarriage is NOT COMPLETE.
AGAIN NOW I AM MOSTLY GOING ON NR FACTS .
And had that had THST blood test they MOST CERTAINLY HAVE GIVEN ANTIBIOTICS TO MOM ..no matter the effect on the child .
But you think she SHOUld not even HAVE done that for her .
that's horrid
The baby was at risk of acquiring the infection from the membranes, so antiobiotics would have only helped her/him.

Giving the 'baby' antibiotics would have accomplished nothing - she was already miscarrying, and the infection, which she got from carrying a septic fetus, was killing her. But due to ineptitude on the part of the hospital's lab, and cowardice on the part of the administrator, she died, right along with her non-viable fetus.

She should have been given the option of an abortion, as soon as she requested information about the efficacy of one - but the hospital was far more worried about the legal and religious ramifications of killing her fetus, than the legal and financial consequences of just letting her die.

Oh, did you think "functional circuit" meant it was functioning at 18 weeks?
You did. Admit it.
Your article clearly says a FUNCTIONAL CIRCUIT exists at 18 weeks. A FUNCTIONAL CIRCUIT doesn't mean a nonfunctioning circuit.
