b. Drug dosage and frequency of administration

4. (fill-in-the-blank). To explain how important an ADR is I would like to share a personal experience. In 1995,
the Code Blue Team at the hospital where I worked, responded to my Intensive Care call to help me
resuscitate the 25 year-old mother of a precious four-month old baby girl. The mother's history reported that
two months after delivery she resumed her birth control pills. On Mother's day she experienced shortness of
breath and the husband rushed his wife to the hospital with the baby in tow. Within four hours the mother was
dead from an ADR of birth control pills. The primary complication was what?: ________________. To this day I
wonder what happened to that precious little girl who grew up without her mother.
