ABSTRACTThe presence of sentinel events during the transfer of obstetric emergencies is considered as an unexpected event in which there are complications causing the mother and the fetus death. It was performed a longitudinal prospective study in pregnant women who moved by the mobile medical emergency with the diagnosis of obstetric emergencies in Bayamo during the time period between January 1st 2014 and March 31. The sample consisted of 102 pregnants transferred to the mobile medical emergency with the diagnosis of obstetric emergency. The general objective was to describe the sentinel events during the transfer of obstetric emergencies. There were determined the variables: gestational age, obstetric emergencies, sentinel events during clinical and hemodynamic variables transfer to calculate the percentages for a better understanding and implementation.
