Multidisciplinary Team of UMMMC Caregivers Collaborate Innovate to Save Woman and Her Unborn baby


Tinan Doualou Kouame never expected to spend the final weeks of her second pregnancy in the Medical Intensive Care Unit (MICU) at the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC). Mrs. Doualou had always had difficulty catching her breath, but what she thought was asthma turned out to be an underlying lung disease that caused pulmonary hypertension — a serious condition with often-deadly consequences for pregnant women. A few weeks into her third trimester, Mrs. Doualou landed in the MICU where a massive team of doctors, nurses and social workers from almost every corner of the hospital would work together to save her life and welcome her daughter to the world.
