    I'm guessing she's both septic AND threw a PE. Both common complications post-surgical, and would explain the gasping for air and high fever... I would really like to know her BP, and if she's been d/c'd on any medications and if she's been compliant with those meds, given that she was diagnosed with HELLP. I am curious as to whether she actually had pre-eclamptic signs, or was just exhibiting more of the HELLP spectrum... it's all moved around so fast nobody can keep them straight anymore, but I'd like to know if her disease state affected her BP or her liver more, essentially... What's her vaginal discharge like? Any indication of birth material retention? (Rare, but could occur, even with a C-section). What's the monitor look like? Neurological status? Wendy CO EMT-B
