ABSTRACTA cross-sectional study was carried out in the Intensive Care Unit of "Carlos Manuel de Céspedes" General University Hospital in Bayamo, Granma province from January, 2010 to December, 2014, in order to characterize the extreme maternal morbidity according to clinical and epidemiological variables. From 504 assisted patients, 153 (30.3%) presented severe complications. Hysterectomy due to infection and hemorrhages, circulatory shock, oxygen saturation under 90% and respiratory frequency higher than 40 or lower than 6 per minute constituted the fundamental indicators of extreme morbidity in these women. The maternal morbidity and mortality rates were 11.1 per 100 00 live births and 5.6 per 1 000 live births, respectively. Among the risk factors of extremely severe morbidity there were: gestacional age over 36 weeks, caesarean section and a history of this surgery.
