Abstract  
Purpose: Assessing to what extent the interventions for treating amniotic fluid embolism (AFE) are effective. Materials and Methods: A systematic review of cases of AFE available on PubMed, Scielo, Scopus, and AJOL databases from 1990 to 2015 was carried out. The perception of effectiveness of each kind of intervention on heart, lungs, coagulopathy, and the importance of immediate parturition was quantified semi-quantitatively, by scoring textual information (from 0 to 3). Scores 2 and 3 were considered positive scores (effective intervention), while 0 and 1 were considered negative scores (ineffective intervention). Rates of such scores were compared with a random distribution of scores from 0 to 3. Sub-groups analyses were carried out. Results: One hundred twenty-one typical AFE cases were assessed. Each intervention for supporting the heart and, predominantly, lung function is perceived as pivotal. Conclusion: The management of AFE should be focused on supporting the lung and the heart function.
