HERNANDEZ HIGAREDA, Salvador et al. Immediate response team, another IMSS strategy to reduce maternal death. The surgeon participation is important, experience in UMAE HGO CMNO IMSS. Cir. gen [online]. 2018, vol.40, n.1, pp.13-16. ISSN 1405-0099.


To describe a good strategy implemented in the Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS) to prevent maternal deaths. The IMSS has created a strategy to prevent maternal death called “Immediate Response Team” (ERI), which is a multidisciplinary emergency system that is activated when there is an obstetric emergency in any of its care units at any of the three levels of care, where there is an immediate and effective communication between the doctor who refers the patient and the one who will receive it, as well as the medical authorities, who favor immediate support to the unit that requires it to achieve timely and efficient patient care.


The implementation of the ERI system is a good strategy to reduce maternal morbidity and mortality, but requires continuous training of the multidisciplinary health team to respond to obstetric emergencies.
