In brief: Rare and serious

Amniotic fuild embolism (afe) is rare and usually occurs during delivery (vaginal or cesarean).
It happens when amniotic fluid is forced into the blood steam. It can be difficult to diagnose and hard to treat - and can be fatal. Fortunately it is quite rare.

In brief: Amnioitc fluid

Is fatal most of the time.
Only few cases survived during history. It happens really fast and patient has cardiorespiratory arrest really fast. It is caused by an anaphylactic type of reaction.
