Abstract  
Pulmonary embolism during delivery is not a frequent occurrence. It is often impossible to ascertain whether it is a case of embolism by amniotic fluid or thromboembolism. Diagnostics of pulmonary embolism in labor is based solely on clinical symptoms. Immediate interdisciplinary treatment with cardiopulmonary resuscitation, hemodynamic stabilization, and correction of haemostasis disorders play a decisive role in prognosis. This paper presents diagnostics, treatment, and consequences of pulmonary embolism in expulsion phase during delivery in epidural anesthesia of a multiparous patient aged 37.
Key words:  Pulmonary embolism      Delivery      Amniotic fluid embolism
