Abstract
In the management of the traumatized gravid and her fetus, diagnostic tests and therapy should be directed primarily at the care of the mother and should not be delayed or compromised because of the pregnancy. Because many factors can damage when the mother is unconscious, fetal well-being should be assessed by serial biophysical profile scoring. If the mother's condition is stable as in the chronic vegetative state, elective delivery might best be performed at a gestational age of 32 to 34 weeks.
Key Words: Maternal vegetative state
