    That is exactly what the team was thinking, and did!

    The patient was rescuscitated with NS IVF, type and crossed, and placed on a monitor. Preop labs were collected. GYN was consulted for concern of a possible ectopic pregnancy.

    In the OR, there was NOT an ectopic pregnancy found. Instead it was a contained hemorrhagic cystic ovary. The ovary was not removed and the patient was determined to have a concurrent hemorrhagic ovary with a completed AB. She did well post-op.
