A team of Doctors, Nurses and staffs from District Hospital and CHSRC, Ukhrul has successfully conducted a Caesarean Section Operation at District Hospital today and delivered a healthy female baby at 4.38 PM.
The mother, 38-year-old from Shangshak village tested COVID positive at CHSRC this morning but as the Hospital does not have a dedicated COVID OT, she was referred to District Hospital and an urgent Caesarean Section operation was carried out jointly by the staff of District Hospital and CHSRC, Ukhrul at District Hospital today.
The C-Section operation was necessitated to be carried out immediately as the mother had started labour pain and she had a history of two previous C/S operations besides having a medical condition of hypothyroidism which if not given timely medical intervention may endanger the life of the mother and the baby.
This is the first time that a COVID positive pregnancy delivery is managed through C-Section operation in our District.
Staff involved in today’s operation were, Dr Yaruiyam M, Gynaecologist from DH
Dr Md Nushrat, Anaesthetist from DH Dr Yashing from CHSRC Wungreichon Shimray, Staff Nurse from DHU Theiyaphy Marchang Staff Nurse from DHU Pamsingphy Lunglo from CHSRC Neerupama Devi, OT Technician from DHU.
