Cardiac depression.: Magnesium sulfate acts as a cardiac depressant and can send a pregnant woman into pulmonary edema, especially if additional factors are present: preeclampsia, twins, obesity, smoking, overdose with magnesium sulfate. Diuresis with Lasix (furosemide) and prompt discontinuation of the magnesium infusion drip will reverse this life-threatening complication rather rapidly. A cardiac echo is warranted.
