Introduction: In developing countries like India in few states like Uttarpardesh maternal mortality rate is still very high. There are so many factors for increase maternal mortality. It is observed from day to day management that lack of separate obstetric ICU facilty is also one of the key factor in increasing the mortality. In Intensive care unit no beds are available. You can not ask a chronic morbid patient to put off the ventilator to save a young mother. Material and Methods: This study was done over a period of one year from Jan 2014 to Dec 2015 at a tertiary care centre in Eastern part of Uttar Pardesh. In This study we observed that how many patiens which needed ventilator support could not get it because of lack of facility. So these patients were kept on ambu bag or intubated with ambubag . We do not know if ventilator facility was available then these patients would have survived but definitely results would have been better. Results: In our study 54 patients died in one year. There were so many causes of so much deaths. It is tertiary care centre. All complicated cases are referred here. Patient are referred very late when it is very difficult to save patients. Because of poverty and transport problems also many patient loose their life. 10% patients did not able to get ICU facility because of non availability of bed. Conclusion: To save young mothers there should be a separate obstetric ICU available at every tertiary care centre. A team of trained anesthetist ,obstetrician skilled in obstetrical critical care should managed critical obstetric patient. More fellowships in critical care should be started to train obstetrician to save mothers.
