The reference to code blue was in relation to my own experience (complete placental abruption).
Your description of Cat 1 is exactly what is written on my discharge summary; thank you for taking the time to share this info.

Cat 1-3 is still classified as an emergency Caesar.
Some paperwork we have an option to tick the Category of Caesarean, other paperwork just gives the option for emergency or elective and then reason for e.g elective repeat, elective due to prev 4th degree tear or emergency cord prolapse or emergency obstructed labour to clarify why and how the Caesar was done.

You're deliberately trying to construe my OP has inflammatory when that was not the intention.
Thank you to those who have actually engaged in a constructive discussion about terminology and/or offered suggestions on how I could refer to mine.

The definition is a crock! Unscheduled doesn't necessarily equal emergency. It could just mean recommended and unexpected. Emergency is a time sensitive issue involving threat to life.
I get a teeny tiny bit annoyed when people refer to a C-Section as elective when bub is breech. It isn't 'really' elective if bub has a condition and medical staff advise a C-section is best.
How about 4 new categories: elective,
Recommended (scheduled and ahead of schedule), necessary and emergency..?!

I liken it to someone turning up at the emergency department with a broken leg. It's not going to kill him but its still classed as an emergency.
My c/s was classed as an emergency and I was pushed through quite quickly however neither bub or I were in immediate danger. The danger was a possibility if I tried to birth naturally and I wasn't willing to risk it so opted for the cs. In all my hospital notes it was recorded as emergency cs.

I feel for you OP. I've had a really traumatic birth, under different circumstances than yours though and years later it still effects me. Understandably you have unresolved issues, might a counsellor help?
