She presented with leaking hence was to be taken up for c.secton. Her echo showed ejection fraction of 63% pt had absolutely no complaints except for occasional palpitation and breathlessnees on exertion.

She was managed as follows:

Sedated with 2 ml of midazolam preop pulse 92/min bp;132/86.induced with 10 mg of midazolam+inj glycoopyrrolate0.2.relaxant was vecuronium 8 mg maintained on no2 ,o2 ;50% ch+isoflurane.induction delivery time was 55 minutes. Baby was absolutely flaccid at birth and did not breath. pt was not cathetrised fluid given was 1 litre pt was reversed with atropie i,2+neostigmine2.5 pt could not maintain oxygen saturation on extubation hence was reintubated .
