Introduction:

the registration of maternal patient care is a social requirement.

Objective:

to specify mortality and maternal morbidity in the intensive care unit of the Hospital "Dr. Agostinho Neto"since 2015 to 2017.

Method:

Results:

the average age of the group of patients was 23.4 ± 5.8 years; with medical record of arterial hypertension (13.2%), 35.3% of the patients were ventilated artificially, 54.1% were admitted due to some obstetric diseases and 45.9% due to a non-obstetric disease, respectively the most frequent were eclampsia - severe pre-eclampsia (19.3%) and bacterial pneumonia (8.7%). In 72.2%, criteria of severe maternal morbidity were identified. Four patients died (2.5%).
