Data obtained included demography, obstetric history, pre- existing medical problems, indication for ICU admission, intervention in ICU and outcome. Results The total numbers of deliveries during this period were 4365.Study population consisted of 56 obstetric cases admitted in ICU. The most common obstetric cause for icu admission in our series was hypertensive disorder of pregnancy (n=24, 42.8 %) followed by hemorrhage.17 cases of mortality were reported. Conclusion Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy and obstetrichaemorrhage were the most common indications of ICU admissions in our study. Risk factors for admission included lesser gestational age, caesarean section, blood loss, and co- morbid conditions of the patients.
