Excess blood loss from uterine bleeding associated with OBSTETRIC LABOR or CHILDBIRTH. It is defined as blood loss greater than 500 ml or of the amount that adversely affects the maternal physiology, such as BLOOD PRESSURE and HEMATOCRIT. Postpartum hemorrhage is divided into two categories, immediate (within first 24 hours after birth) or delayed (after 24 hours postpartum).
Failure of the UTERUS to contract with normal strength, duration, and intervals during childbirth (LABOR, OBSTETRIC). It is also called uterine atony.
Drugs that stimulate contraction of the myometrium. They are used to induce LABOR, OBSTETRIC at term, to prevent or control postpartum or postabortion hemorrhage, and to assess fetal status in high risk pregnancies. They may also be used alone or with other drugs to induce abortions (ABORTIFACIENTS). Oxytocics used clinically include the neurohypophyseal hormone OXYTOCIN and certain prostaglandins and ergot alkaloids. (From AMA Drug Evaluations, 1994, p1157)
The final period of OBSTETRIC LABOR that is from the expulsion of the FETUS to the expulsion of the PLACENTA.
A synthetic analog of natural prostaglandin E1. It produces a dose-related inhibition of gastric acid and pepsin secretion, and enhances mucosal resistance to injury. It is an effective anti-ulcer agent and also has oxytocic properties.
A placenta that fails to be expelled after BIRTH of the FETUS. A PLACENTA is retained when the UTERUS fails to contract after the delivery of its content, or when the placenta is abnormally attached to the MYOMETRIUM.

Abnormal placentation in which the PLACENTA implants in the lower segment of the UTERUS (the zone of dilation) and may cover part or all of the opening of the CERVIX. It is often associated with serious antepartum bleeding and PREMATURE LABOR.
Bleeding within the SKULL, including hemorrhages in the brain and the three membranes of MENINGES. The escape of blood often leads to the formation of HEMATOMA in the cranial epidural, subdural, and subarachnoid spaces.
Extraction of the FETUS by means of abdominal HYSTEROTOMY.
The period of OBSTETRIC LABOR that is from the complete dilatation of the CERVIX UTERI to the expulsion of the FETUS.

The presentation and management of post-partum choriocarcinoma. (2/254)

Post-partum choriocarcinoma is a rare complication of pregnancy. We have analysed a series of nine consecutive patients presenting with choriocarcinoma after a full-term non-molar pregnancy. All patients were managed at the Supraregional Trophoblastic Disease Screening and Treatment Centre at Weston Park Hospital, Sheffield between 1987 and 1996. All presented with persistent primary or secondary post-partum haemorrhage. Treatment with multiagent chemotherapy (initially methotrexate, dactinomycin and etoposide) was successful in all cases. Early diagnosis is important because this rare condition is potentially curable with appropriate chemotherapy.  (+info)

Simultaneous occurrence of multiple neoplasms and hyperplasias in the adrenal and thyroid gland of the horse resembling multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome: case report and retrospective identification of additional cases. (3/254)

Neoplastic and hyperplastic disorders that affect multiple endocrine tissues in a single individual are well described in humans but less so in domestic animals. Multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN) in humans is a genetically determined syndrome characterized by the appearance of benign or malignant proliferations within two or more endocrine glands. The primary endocrine tumors that are characteristic of MEN arise from cells that share the capacity for amine precursor uptake and decarboxylation. Here we describe the case of a 22-year-old Thoroughbred mare that died during an unattended parturition and subsequently was presented for necropsy at the University of California, Davis, Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital. A C-cell (medullary) thyroid adenoma, pheochromocytoma, and multicentric bilateral nodular hyperplasia of the adrenal medulla were present, findings that are remarkably similar to those of human MEN syndrome. Mortality during pregnancy in women with undiagnosed pheochromocytoma is high (approximately 50%), typically because of hypertension and/or hemorrhage associated with catecholamine release from the tumor. Similarly, the mare in this report died of hemorrhage subsequent to parturition. A retrospective evaluation of endocrine tumors in horses that underwent necropsy at the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital from 1987 to 1997 was undertaken to identify additional possible cases of MEN in horses. Data from this retrospective evaluation suggest that coexistence of hyperplasias and neoplasias of the thyroid and adrenal glands, similar to MEN syndrome of humans, also occurs with some frequency in the horse.  (+info)

Complicated third stage of labor: time to switch on the scanner. (4/254)

This Editorial chronicles the current experience in ultrasound usage during pathologic events occurring in the third stage of labor. Further improvement in the technology for carrying out clinical research will improve our knowledge so that more information can be gleaned from this modality to bestow optimal management for such potentially dangerous conditions. Awareness of the capabilities of sonography may provide the motivation for its use, and obstetricians are encouraged to scan the third stage of normal deliveries for better recognition of normal findings and improved assessment of abnormal ones. Although final decisions should be based mainly upon sound clinical judgement, we contend that complicated third stage of labor warrants turning on the scanner.  (+info)

Fetal complications of obstetric cholestasis. (5/254)

Among 56 pregnancies complicated by obstetric cholestasis five intrauterine deaths and one neonatal death occurred between 33 and 39 weeks, and a further six infants required urgent delivery for intrapartum asphyxia. Eighteen spontaneous premature deliveries occurred. Five mothers required specific treatment for unexplained postpartum haemorrhage. Cholestasis of pregnancy is therefore not a condition benign to the fetus, and it may contribute to increased maternal morbidity.  (+info)

The influence of drugs on the kinin-forming system in relation to pregnancy and parturition in the rat. (6/254)

The duration of normal gestation and parturition in the rat can be changed by treatment with drugs which alter the equilibrium of the kallikrein-kinin system. The kallikrein inhibitor, aprotinin, when given from Days 19-22 of pregnancy prolongs gestation. Treatment with aprotinin from Days 20-22 of pregnancy prolongs the parturient process, as does a single dose given on the morning of Day 22. Kallikrein, when administered from Days 19-22 of pregnancy, results in a prolongation of gestation and abolishes the pre-parturient behaviour ('labour'). Parturition is prolonged and many fetuses are stillborn. Soya bean trypsin inhibitor when given from Days 19-22 of pregnancy delays and prolongs parturition; maternal haemorrhage occurs during birth and many fetuses are born dead or are abandoned at birth. It is suggested that the kallikrein-kinin system plays a functional role in the normal process of parturition in the rat.  (+info)

Use of methergine for the prevention of postoperative endometritis in non-elective cesarean section patients. (7/254)

OBJECTIVE: Methergine increases constriction of uterine musculature which may facilitate sloughing of endometrial debris, close uterine vessels, and prevent post-cesarean endometritis. The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of methergine in preventing endometritis in patients undergoing non-elective cesarean section delivery. METHODS: Eighty patients undergoing non-elective cesarean section were enrolled in a prospective randomized clinical trial of methergine (41) versus no methergine (39) administration during the postpartum period. The hospital records were abstracted after discharge to compare the postpartum course. RESULTS: There were no significant demographic differences between the two groups. The women receiving methergine had a significant reduction in the rate of postoperative endometritis (10% vs. 36%, P < 0.005). In addition, the mean postoperative hemoglobin was significantly higher in the methergine treated group (P < 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: The use of methergine postpartum in women undergoing non-elective cesarean sections significantly reduces the incidence of postoperative endometritis and blood loss.  (+info)

A multicentre randomized controlled trial of oral misoprostol and i.m. syntometrine in the management of the third stage of labour. (8/254)

Postpartum haemorrhage accounts for nearly 28% of maternal mortality in developing countries. Syntometrine is an effective and commonly used oxytocic in preventing postpartum haemorrhage, but it requires a controlled storage environment and i.m. administration. Misoprostol is an orally active uterotonic agent. A total of 2058 patients having a singleton pregnancy, low risk for postpartum haemorrhage and vaginal delivery were randomized to receive either 1 ml syntometrine or 600 microgram misoprostol for the management of the third stage of labour. There were no significant differences between the two groups in the mean blood loss, the incidence of postpartum haemorrhage and the fall in haemoglobin concentration. The need for additional oxytocic injection was significantly higher in the misoprostol group [relative risk (RR) 1.62, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.34-1.96], but that of manual removal of placenta was reduced (RR 0.29, 95% CI 0.09-0.87). Shivering and transient pyrexia were more common in the misoprostol group. Oral misoprostol might be used in the management of the third stage, especially in situations where the use of syntometrine is contraindicated and facilities for storage and parenteral administration of oxytocics are limited.  (+info)

Background: Post partum haemorrhage (PPH) is one of the most common causes ofmaternal mortality worldwide. Primary PPH (which occurs within 24 hours of delivery) hasbeen studied a lot. But data regarding secondary PPH (which occurs 24 hours after deliveryupto to 6 weeks post partum) is sparse. Our aim was to find out the risk factors and maternaloutcome of secondary PPH.. Materials and Methods: A cross sectional analytic study of 32 cases admitted with secondaryPPH in Gynae and Obstetric department of Rangpur Medical College Hospital during 1 yearstudy period was carried out.. Result: Frequency of secondary PPH was 0.58%. Mean age of the patient was 25.23±2.79years; 22(69%) patients were multi para; 17 (53%) patients had education up to primarylevel.

Background We set out to validate the accuracy of gravimetric quantification of blood loss during simulated major postpartum haemorrhage and to evaluate the technique in a consecutive cohort of women experiencing major postpartum haemorrhage. The study took part in a large UK delivery suite over a one-year period. All women who experienced major postpartum haemorrhage were eligible for inclusion. Methods For the validation exercise, in a simulated postpartum haemorrhage scenario using known volumes of artificial blood, the accuracy of gravimetric measurement was compared with visual estimation made by delivery suite staff. In the clinical observation study, the blood volume lost during postpartum haemorrhage was measured gravimetrically according to our routine institutional protocol and was correlated with fall in haemoglobin. The main outcome measure was the accuracy of gravimetric measurement of blood loss. Results Validation exercise: the mean percentage error of gravimetrically measured ...
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effectiveness and safety of an intrauterine vacuum-induced hemorrhage-control device for postpartum hemorrhage treatment. METHODS: ptA multicenter, prospective, single-arm treatment study of a novel intrauterine device that uses low-level vacuum to induce uterine myometrial contraction to achieve control of abnormal postpartum uterine bleeding and postpartum hemorrhage was undertaken at 12 centers in the United States. The primary effectiveness endpoint was the proportion of participants in whom use of the intrauterine vacuum-induced hemorrhage-control device controlled abnormal bleeding without requiring escalating interventions. The primary safety endpoint was the incidence, severity, and seriousness of device-related adverse events. Secondary outcomes included time to bleeding control, rate of transfusion, and device usability scored by each investigator using the device. RESULTS: Of 107 participants enrolled with primary postpartum hemorrhage or abnormal postpartum ...
Hemorrhage post partum is bleeding 500 cc or more after the third stage is complete or after the placenta is born. The incidence of post partum hemorrhage increases due to several risk factors, namely: maternal age, parity, birth distance, labor history, anemia, long and gemelli delivery. This study is sequential to determine the risk factors that cause post partum hemorrhage at the Pare Kediri Regional General Hospital.The research design used in this study was descriptive by using a single variable, namely the risk factor for the cause of post partum hemorrhage at the Pare Kediri Regional General Hospital. The sample size of 29 respondents was post partum mothers who had bleeding with complete medical record data from January 2015 to May 2015. The sampling technique used total sampling (saturated sampling). The study was conducted on 5 September-5 October 2015 with 29 respondents. Secondary data collection by looking at medical records.

Maternal mortality is too rare in high income countries to be used as a marker of the quality of maternity care. Consequently severe maternal morbidity has been suggested as a better indicator. Using the maternal morbidity outcome indicator (MMOI) developed and validated for use in routinely collected population health data, we aimed to determine trends in severe adverse maternal outcomes during the birth admission and in particular to examine the contribution of postpartum haemorrhage (PPH). We applied the MMOI to the linked birth-hospital discharge records for all women who gave birth in New South Wales, Australia from 1999 to 2004 and determined rates of severe adverse maternal outcomes. We used frequency distributions and contingency table analyses to examine the association between adverse outcomes and maternal, pregnancy and birth characteristics, among all women and among only those with PPH. Using logistic regression, we modelled the effects of these characteristics on adverse maternal outcomes.
Sublingual misoprostol produces rapid peak concentration and is more effective than oral misoprostol for prevention of excessive postpartum bleeding. The study hypothesis was to test whether women receiving sublingual misoprostol for prevention of postpartum hemorrhage have 30 ml less average blood loss than women receiving oxytocin, the standard of care for prevention of postpartum hemorrhage. We conducted a Double blind randomized controlled trial of .652 consenting, eligible pregnant women admitted to the labor room of the teaching hospital at J N Medical College, Belgaum, India. Women participating in the study were assigned by computer generated randomization to receive the study medications and placebos within one minute after clamping and cutting the umbilical cord. We also looked at the drugs effects on postpartum blood loss at or above ≥500 ml (considered hemorrhage), and the percent of women experiencing more than a 10% decline in haemoglobin, and reported drug side effects ...
Results Twelve randomised clinical trials (RCT) with a total of 4060 participants fulfilled our inclusion criteria and were included in this review. Four RCTs (1483 participants) compared misoprostol with placebo given in addition to conventional uterotonics. Adjunct use of misoprostol to additional uterotonics had no impact on our primary outcomes including maternal mortality (risk ratio (RR) 6.16; 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.75 to 50.85), serious maternal morbidity (RR 0.34; 95% CI 0.01 to 8.31); admission to intensive care (RR 0.79; 95% CI 0.30 to 2.11), or hysterectomy (RR 0.93; 95% CI 0.16 to 5.41).. Two RCTs (1851 participants) compared 800 mcg sublingual misoprostol to oxytocin infusion as primary PPH treatment. Primary outcomes did not differ between the two groups. Five trials examined the effectiveness of oestrogen, tranexamic acid, lower segment compression and aortic compression devices, but were too small to assess impact on primary outcomes. ...
Background. Thankfully primary postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) is a rare presentation to the Emergency Department. However, it is the most common form of major obstetric haemorrage, and obstetric haemorrhage is the second leading cause of maternal death in the UK and Ireland. [1] When these patients do present with significant bleeding it can be pretty scary because although we know it is a time critical, high stakes presentation, we often dont feel very prepared or very knowledgeable in dealing with them down in the ED.. Assessment (and management). Primary postpartum haemorrhage is bleeding which occurs within the first 24 hours of giving birth. It is defined as minor if there is 500 -1000ml blood loss with no clinical sign of shock, and major if ,1000mls of blood has been lost, or if there are signs of shock. [1] Quantifying how much blood has been lost is really difficult, and as such frequently inaccurate, so often we have to be guided more by clinical signs. However, it is also worth knowing ...

Postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) remains the major cause of maternal mortality in France. The most efficient treatment of severe PPH is sulprostone which is associated with cardiac complications. The objective of this study was to assess the efficacy and the safety of intrarectal misoprostol for curative postpartum haemorrhage treatment.. We conducted a multicenter double blind randomized placebo control trial between June 2004 and December 2007, among consenting women with postpartum haemorrhage and failure to oxytocin treatment.. Our main criteria of judgement was quantification of blood loss and the use of sulprostone between the two groups using either misoprostol intrarectal tablets (5X200mg ) or placebo in similar opaque introducer. ...
Postpartum hemorrhage is the most serious complication encountered by obstetricians during routine patient care and is the leading cause of severe maternal morbidity and death. The incidence of maternal mortality due to postpartum bleeding varies between countries. In developing countries, the incidence of maternal mortality is approximately 1 in 1,000 deliveries, whereas in developed countries, the incidence is only around 1 in 10,0000 deliveries / This large difference in maternal mortality is primarily attributed to country-specific differences in management capacity. Recommended procedures for management of postpartum hemorrhage have been well published, with recent reports focusing on use of conservative management rather than cesarean hysterectomy (CH) to preserve the uterus. The first step in common management of postpartum hemorrhage is the use of uterine stimulants (uterotonics) such as oxytocin, ergot derivatives, prostaglandins, and misoprostol, and bimanual compression of the uterus.
Once a baby is delivered, the uterus normally continues to contract (tightening of uterine muscles) and expels the placenta. After the placenta is delivered, these contractions help compress the bleeding vessels in the area where the placenta was attached. If the uterus does not contract strongly enough, called uterine atony, these blood vessels bleed freely and hemorrhage occurs. This is the most common cause of postpartum hemorrhage. If small pieces of the placenta remain attached, bleeding is also likely. It is estimated that as much as 600 ml (more than half a quart) of blood flows through the placenta each minute in a full-term pregnancy..

Decreasing the rates of maternal mortality has been set as one of the priorities of the United National Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). For MDG5, goals relating to the decrease of maternal mortality by three quarters from 1990 to 2015 have been set, and since 1990, rates of maternal deaths have been decreased by 47%. Women in developing countries also have a higher rate of pregnancy as compared to women in developed countries. As such, their risk of pregnancy-related death is higher. Maternal deaths are attributed to different factors including severe bleeding (postpartum haemorrhage), infections, high blood pressure at pregnancy, and unsafe abortion. This study will focus on postpartum haemorrhage. The WHO (2013) declares that severe postpartum bleeding can kill a delivering mother within two hours from delivery if interventions are not implemented immediately and the bleeding is not stopped. Moderate postpartum haemorrhage is defined as blood loss more than or equivalent to 500 ...
FROM OBSTETRICS & GYNECOLOGY. Ob.gyns. and hospitals should have an organized and systematic treatment plan for postpartum hemorrhage, according to an updated practice bulletin from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG).. ACOG is recommending that obstetric care facilities post guidelines regarding the diagnosis methods and management techniques of postpartum hemorrhage. If postpartum hemorrhage is suspected, a physical exam should be performed to quickly inspect the uterus, cervix, vulva, and perineum to identify the source of bleeding. Once the cause has been identified, a treatment plan specific to the etiology of the bleeding can be implemented (Obstet Gynecol. 2017;130:e168-86). Less invasive methods should always be used first, Aaron Caughey, MD, PhD, one of the coauthors of the practice bulletin, said in a statement. If those methods fail, then more aggressive interventions must be considered to preserve the life of the mother.. The ACOG reVITALize program ...

Recombinant activated factor VII (rFVIIa) improves severe primary postpartum hemorrhage in 80% of women in whom it is used as treatment-in many cases after a single dose-and in 75% of women in whom it is used as prophylaxis, with few adverse effects, according to findings from the Northern European Registry. Four cases of thromboembolism, one myocardial infarction, and one skin rash occurred as a result of rFVIIa administration.
I recently heard interesting statistics about blood loss and active management where a hospital was audited and it was found that there was a higher incidence of PPH with active management than physiological management. Unfortunately I cant remember where I heard this...I think it was the NZ College of Midwives Conference in Auckland this year. I realise this isnt backed up by the majority of the research. I do wonder if we are doing more harm than good interfering as we do but as you say, there are lots of factors and the mere fact of the excitement around the birth and everyone in the room trying to get their hands on the baby distracts and interferes in the natural process ...

Health Economics Evaluation of the Management of Severe Postpartum Hemorrhage: Comparison of Recombinant Activated Factor VII Strategy to the Reference Strategy
Introduction: Postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) is the major cause of maternal death worldwide. Haemostatic abnormalities are independently associated with a signifi‐ cantly increased risk for severe PPH. In this study, the value of haemostatic evalua‐ tion in women with severe PPH was explored. Aim: To investigate the occurrence of previously unknown inherited bleeding disor‐ ders in women with severe PPH. Methods: Women with severe PPH (blood loss of ≥2000 mL) between 2011 and 2017, referred to the haematology outpatient clinic for haemostatic evaluation, were retrospectively included. A bleeding disorder was diagnosed based on (inter)national guidelines, or when having a clear bleeding phenotype, not fulfilling any diagnos‐ tic criteria or laboratory abnormalities, this being classified as Bleeding of Unknown Cause (BUC). Logistic regression was used to model the association between diagno‐ sis and obstetrical causes and risk factors for PPH. Results: In total, 85 women with PPH were ...

At a meeting in November 2011, the panel agreed on a definition of severe PPH that would identify those women who were at a ...
Postpartum hemorrhage is a serious obstetrics emergency occurring independently from the mode of delivery. The traditional definition of PPH is based on quantification of blood loss but has variable criteria and several limitations across countries or obstetrics national societies. In general, for mild PPH, a blood loss ,500 ml and a severe blood loss ,1000 ml are considered after spontaneous delivery [13] or above 1000 ml in cesarean section [3]. Regardless of definitions used, only a visual assessment of blood loss is inaccurate [14], and many postpartum women are subsequently underdiagnosed/overdiagnosed for PPH. Thus, alternative blood loss assessment is a check for a drop in hematocrit of 10% counted before and after delivery [15]. The bleeding after labor can occur within 24 hours (primary form of PPH) or, later, from 24 hours after delivery until 6 weeks postpartum (secondary form) of PPH.. During the process of physiological subinvolution, bleeding from the uterus is regulated by several ...
The hypertensive disorders of pregnancy are leading causes of maternal mortality and morbidity, especially in low- and middle-income countries. Early identification of women with preeclampsia and other hypertensive disorders of pregnancy at high risk of complications will aid in reducing this health burden. The fullPIERS model (Preeclampsia Integrated Estimate of Risk) was developed for predicting adverse maternal outcomes from preeclampsia using data from tertiary centers in high-income countries and uses maternal demographics, signs, symptoms, and laboratory tests as predictors. We aimed to assess the validity of the fullPIERS model in women with the hypertensive disorders of pregnancy in low-resourced hospital settings. Using miniPIERS data collected on women admitted with hypertensive disorders of pregnancy between July 2008 and March 2012 in 7 hospitals in 5 low- and middle-income countries, the predicted probability of developing an adverse maternal outcome was calculated for each woman ...

Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is a life-threatening complication of delivery. It is the leading cause of maternal mortality. During the last 15 years, several total uterine compressive sutures were described in literature. They have proven their effectiveness and safety in the management of severe PPH as an alternative to hysterectomy. We present in this paper a new technique of uterine compressive sutures based on removable uterine brace compressive sutures with compression of the uterus against the pubis. This technique may be more effective by using two mechanisms of uterine bleeding control and also may prevent uterine synechia by respecting the uterine cavity and the removal of the suture 1 or 2 days later. We also present the results of a 15 patients series using this new suture.
How should to prevent post delivery haemorrhage? In which cases post delivery haemorrhage is avoidable? What is the most effective mechanism to prevent post delivery haemorrhage? Divyanka replied. This is my third baby. My first two babies were normal and i had no complications. but in this case, i had my baby more than a month ago and am still bleeding.What is this, is this postpartum hemorrhage? Hemant replied. I agree that timely medical intervention can prevent PPH. But diet also play an important role in preventing post delivery haemorrhage. a good prenatal nutrition with supplements helps to have a safe delivery. multivitamins are also very effective in this regard. Suva replied. Postpartum hemorrhage can only be prevented by timely medical care. Good hospital with expert doctors can sense the risk of PPH and thus prevent it. It is best to discuss the issue with your doctor ...
Defining postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is problematic and has been historically difficult. Waiting for a patient to meet the postpartum hemorrhage criteria, particularly in resource-poor settings or with sudden hemorrhage, may delay appropriate intervention.

Haleema Shakur on behalf of The WOMAN Trial Management Group. Post partum haemorrhage (PPH) is a leading cause of maternal mortality, accounting for about 100,000 maternal deaths every year.1 Almost all (99%) of the deaths are in low and middle income countries and most of the deaths occur in the immediate post-partum period.2 There are known effective treatments for preventing severe bleeding after childbirth and it is essential to ensure that all pregnant women have access to these.3 However, even with these treatments, many women will develop severe post partum bleeding and there is an urgent need for a safe and effective treatment that is inexpensive and easy to administer across a ...
Initiative to Prevent Women from Bleeding to Death at Childbirth Worldwide, post partum hemorrhage (bleeding after childbirth) typically causes around 130,000 maternal deaths a year, about 1/3 of all maternal deaths.
Bleeding after childbirth (postpartum haemorrhage) is the leading cause of maternal deaths in Sub-Saharan Africa and Egypt, and yet it is largely preventable. Possible causes of heavy bleeding directly following childbirth or within the first 24 hours are that the uterus fails to contract after delivery (uterine atony), a retained placenta, inverted or ruptured uterus, and cervical, vaginal, or perineal tears.. In well-resourced settings haemorrhage is reduced by routine active management of delivery of the placenta, called the third stage of labour, using a drug to stimulate contraction of the uterus such as oxytocin. Uterine massage after delivery of the placenta can also promote contraction of the uterus. This involves placing a hand on the womans lower abdomen and stimulating the uterus by repetitive massaging or squeezing movements.. This review included two controlled trials in which women were randomly assigned to receive uterine massage or no massage with active management of the third ...
Reference: BJOG 2013 Feb;120(3):277 (level 1 [likely reliable] evidence). Postpartum hemorrhage is a major cause of maternal death in many low-resource countries around the world. While injected oxytocin is commonly used for hemorrhage prophylaxis in institutional settings, its use may be impractical if not impossible in areas where home birth is the norm and even skilled birth attendants are rare. A recent systematic review evaluated the evidence for oral misoprostol for the prevention of postpartum hemorrhage in such settings.. The review included 2 randomized trials and 4 non-randomized controlled trials comparing oral misoprostol vs. placebo or no treatment for women during the third stage of labor. The misoprostol dose was 600 mcg in 5 trials and 400 mcg in the other. Trained health workers administered the drug in 4 trials. In 2 trials, the drug was distributed to pregnant women following counseling during an antenatal visit with instruction for use during birth.. Oral misoprostol reduced ...
Since 1996, maternal mortality is registered as part of a permanent confidential inquiry in France. The National Committee has studied all cases recorded to assess the cause of death and the avoidable obstetrical complications involved. Recommendations are proposed. In 1996 and 1997, there were 196 maternal deaths in France; 165 could be analyzed. The cause was obstetrical in 123 cases (74%), non-obstetrical in 26 (16%), and unidentified in 16 (10%). Ninety-seven direct deaths occurred (78% of the obstetrical mortality cases); 31 cases of hemorrhage including 19 post partum, 20 cases of pregnancy-induced hypertension, 10 cases of eclampsia and 7 of pre-eclampsia, 16 cases of amniotic fluid embolism, 11 cases of thromboembolism and 10 cases of sepsis ...
A literature review was conducted to determine whether misoprostol is an effective treatment for postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) and in what dose. All English language articles published before March 2007 reporting on misoprostol for treatment of PPH were reviewed. Unpublished data previously presented at international scientific meetings were also included in the review. Little evidence exists in support of misoprostol for treatment of postpartum hemorrhage (PPH). Nonetheless, PPH remains a major killer of women worldwide, and new treatment options are widely sought. For this reason, we recommend a single dose of misoprostol 600 μg oral or sublingual for PPH treatment in instances when other treatments have either failed to work or are not available..

Table 3: Emergent Uterine Arterial Embolization Using N-Butyl Cyanoacrylate in Postpartum Hemorrhage with Disseminated Intravascular Coagulation
The authors present a retrospective, observational study of the treatment of postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) with a massive transfusion protocol (MTP). The study delineates that PPH is a rare condition, often associated with coagulopathy, and the authors claim that the MTP was associated with favorable hematological indices, as evaluated with conventional coagulation tests. The data, however, indicate that most of the PPH patients were severely coagulopathic during the resuscitation phase and this questions the conclusions somewhat. The authors suggest that outcome studies are needed and this is correct.. - Pär Johansson. ...

Suzanne Bell, MPH Candidate. As a Bixby summer intern, Suzanne worked alongside two domestic NGOs in rural Bangladesh to complete the next phase of the Misoprostol Pilot Project. The projects overall aim is to illustrate that womens use of misoprostol and an absorptive mat during childbirth can reduce the rates of post partum hemorrhage (PPH), a leading cause of maternal death.. Suzannes internship objective was two-fold: collect retrospective data regarding the rates of maternal mortality and PPH prior to the inception of the clinical trial, and interview personnel involved with the program to ascertain perceptions and sustainability of the project. Although it required great tenacity to collect years of data from myriad government and NGO officials, Suzanne achieved her first aim. She also completed her second goal by conducting 24 in-depth interviews throughout the interventions catchment area, which produced a wealth of rich data. In order to meet these objectives, Suzanne traveled to 6 ...

Ms G from London, 37 years old at the time of the incident, gave birth to her second child at the Royal Berkshire Hospital on 17 October 2009.. She returned home with her newborn baby but continued to bleed very heavily.. On 13 November 2009 she collapsed at home. Luckily, a health visitor happened to be present and called an ambulance, which took Ms G back to hospital.. Following investigations, it was found that a large piece of placenta had been retained, which had caused a post partum haemorrhage.. Ms G had to undergo an Evacuation of Retained Products of Conception (ERPC), a procedure under general anaesthetic to remove the retained placenta. The operation revealed the piece of retained placenta was 6 x 4 cm in size.. Post operatively Ms G required intravenous antibiotics and a blood transfusion. It was estimated that she lost 1.5 to 2 litres of blood.. She was discharged on 15 November 2009.. The Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust admitted liability and the case was settled for ...
Recent efforts to prevent post-partum haemorrhage (PPH) in low-income countries have focused on providing women with access to oral misoprostol during home birth. The WHO recommends using lay health workers (LHWs) to administer misoprostol in settings where skilled birth attendants are not available. This review synthesizes current knowledge about the barriers and facilitators affecting implementation of advance community distribution of misoprostol to prevent PPH, where misoprostol may be self-administered or administered by an LHW.. We searched for and summarized available empirical evidence, and collected primary data from programme stakeholders about their experiences of programme implementation.. We present key outcomes and features of advanced distribution programmes that are in operation or have been piloted globally. We categorized factors influencing implementation into those that operate at the health system level, factors related to the community and policy context and those factors ...

MSH, through an Innovation Fund grant of the Reproductive Health Supplies Coalition, and with contribution from the USAID-funded Uganda Health Supply Chain Program, supported Uganda to implement integration of oxytocin, the first-line medicine to prevent and treat excessive bleeding postpartum hemorrhage after delivery, into the vaccine cold chain for improved storage. The objective of the project was to facilitate the integration of oxytocin into the Expanded Program for Immunisation (EPI) cold chain by conducting an options analysis, securing political commitment, and supporting phased implementation in Uganda.. MSH navigated complex stakeholder engagement and applied a policy options analysis framework to determine where along the supply chain integration is needed, and to support the Ministry of Health in implementation. MSH facilitated the formation of an integration task force, comprising key stakeholders from the MoH and partners involved in supply chain, immunization programming, and ...
Ergometrine is derived from ergot plants. It stimulates smooth muscle contraction, both in the uterus and blood vessels. This makes it useful for delivery of the placenta and to reduce postpartum bleeding. It may be used during the third stage of labour (delivery of the placenta) and postpartum to prevent and treat postpartum haemorrhage. It is only used after delivery of the baby, not in the first or second stage.. Due to the action on the smooth muscle in blood vessels and gastrointestinal tract, it can cause several side effects, including hypertension, diarrhoea, vomiting and angina. It needs to be avoided in eclampsia, and used only with significant caution in patients with hypertension.. Syntometrine is a combination drug containing oxytocin (Syntocinon) and ergometrine. It can be used for prevention or treatment of postpartum haemorrhage.. ...

The aim of this review is to address the incidence of maternal obesity, a modifiable risk factor contributing to MOH.. Methods: This 6-year retrospective review involved the interrogation of the annual clinical reports of the tertiary maternal centres in the East of Ireland between the years 2009-2014. We assessed patient risk factors for developing MOH in the antenatal period with a focus on maternal obesity (Body Mass Index (BMI) ≥30 Kg/m2). Associations between categorical variables were tested using Pearsons chi-square test.. Results: The incidence of MOH was 2.21/1,000 livebirths during the 6-year period. Of those women 20.5% of cases had BMIs recorded and 34.72% of those with recorded BMI were obese. Within the obese cohort, patients suffered an average blood loss of 2820 ml in the first 24 hours postpartum, with 88% requiring a blood transfusion. There was a ...
Last year, she took a global health course which gave her perspective on creative solutions to improve birth outcomes. In the U.S., if a woman in a hospital is experiencing a postpartum hemorrhage, we have ready access to a variety of treatments and medical professionals to save her life, but in a place like rural Pakistan where only 30% of births are attended by any skilled health professional and essential medications are only available to 3.3% of the public market, other strategies were necessary, she explains. Downes describes how a combination of several innovative programs, including the Lady Health Workers (which trains local young women to provide basic primary health services) and the introduction of prophylactic misoprostol for postpartum hemorrhage (an inexpensive, easy to use medication that requires no refrigeration) has led to significant reductions in the incidence of maternal mortality in Pakistan. Similarly, we may be able to develop less-expensive, effective ways of ...

Pituitary infarction is a well-known consequence of postpartum hemorrhage and attendant hypotension (Sheehans syndrome). Antepartum pituitary necrosis, however, is exceedingly rare, having been reported in only four women, all young diabetics. The clinical findings and laboratory data for three additional subjects who developed acute pituitary insufficiency during the latter part of pregnancy are reported. None experienced pre- or post-partum hemorrhage or hypotension, and all delivered viable, healthy babies. After delivery all women were amenorrheic, developed cold intolerance, and had either absent or inadequate lactation. Laboratory studies showed diminished levels of plasma growth hormone, luteinizing hormone, and follicle-stimulating hormone in all three subjects; in two there was a decreased radioactive iodine uptake and diminished base-line 17-hydroxysteroids and 17-ketosteroids. On replacement therapy the three women have remained in relatively good health for 8 to 15 years after ...
Sorry to post a day late. Yes, postpartum hemorrhage can occur in the hospital. Nurses and docs are trained to respond to this serious complication. Number one reason is uterine atony (a boggy uterus). Normally after birth the uterus contracts, squeezing the blood vessels in the uterus to slow the bleeding. Predisposing factors to bleeding are an overdistended uterus (ie twins+, polyhydramnios (excess amniotic fluid), rapid labor, long induced labor, an infected uterus, grand multiparity (having many babies), retained placenta(uterus cant contract around it) placenta accreeta (buried into muscle of uterus. Lacerations of vagina or cervix can also result in excess blood loss. Treatment is aimed at cause. Agents to help uterus contract are given for uterine atony (pitocin, methergine, hemobate. The uterus can be packed. Uterine artery ligation, a surgical procedure can be attempted. Hysterectomy is last ditch effort. If placenta retained, then manual removal or surgical scraping can be done. ...

Three women in late middle age had recurrent episodes of confusion which could not be explained solely on the basis of an associated infection. All three patients had latent hypopituitarism diagnosed on final presentation. Each patient had a previous history of a severe postpartum haemorrhage followed by two further pregnancies. Experienced clinicians had not made a diagnosis of confusional episodes due to hypopituitary encephalopathy because the history was not immediately available in the confused patient, and the significance of deficient axillary and pubic hair was not given due emphasis.. ...
Postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) is the leading cause of maternal mortality and morbidity globally. Obstetric bleeding can be catastrophic and management is challenging, involving a coordinated multidisciplinary approach, which may include blood products. In settings where blood transfusion is not an option, either because of patient refusal (most commonly in Jehovah Witnesses) or because of unavailability of blood, management becomes even more challenging. Observational studies have demonstrated an association between refusal of blood products in major obstetric haemorrhage and increased morbidity and mortality. This review draws upon evidence in the literature, physiological principles and expert opinion for strategies and guidance to optimise the outcomes of pregnant women in whom blood transfusion is either refused or impossible. The importance of a multidisciplinary antenatal and perinatal management plan, including optimisation of haemoglobin and iron stores pre-delivery, blood loss ...
Study methods: A prospective observational study was carried out in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Kanwatiya Hospital, SMS Medical College, JAIPUR (Rajasthan) from December 2016 to February 2017. Active management of 3rd stage of labor was done by using either inj. Oxytocin 10 IU or tab. Misoprostol 800µg as per the group of the patient. Duration of the third stage of labor, the amount of blood loss, the incidence of postpartum haemorrhage, a drop in haemoglobin concentration from predelivery to 24 h after delivery and adverse effect of drugs were measured ...
So recently my family and I moved in with my in-laws due to financial issues on our side and theirs to kind of help everyone out. That is all going well, no complaints there. The issue I am having is that I moved 80 miles from my OB so I have had to select a new one. I really wanted to go all natural this time around and use a mid-wife but I have been turned down by 3 of them due to my high risk of postpartum hemorrhage, I have had this happen with my last two births that were pretty severe. I required a D&C and transfusions. So I need to use a doc and deliver in a hospital should an emergency like this arise. Any who, a part of me really feels that the intense use of pitocin in my last labor was the main cause of the hemorrhage, no one has ever been able to tell why this has happened only to say uterine atony. Which basically means my uterus was tired. Although I want to go natural a part of me is really scared that should I hemorrhage having someone manually massage my uterus without the ...

In their initial letter to Ms T dated 12 April 2012, the Trust said the Midwife felt her decision to administer Syntometrine was in part due to her lack of experience in attending home births. As this is a somewhat vague statement, I can understand why Ms T queried it. However, the Trust provided her with a more detailed explanation in their letter of 9 May. The Trust said that NICE guidance advises that, for active management of the third stage of labour, oxytocin (Syntometrine) is given followed by early cord clamping and cutting. But they clarified that a midwife with more experience of attending home births may have combined active and physiological management of the third stage of labour. I have taken account of the Midwife Advisers comments that NICE guidance recommends active management of the third stage of labour to reduce the risk of the mother suffering a haemorrhage. She also said that, given the presence of meconium, early cutting and clamping of the cord was good practice, in ...
EDITORIAL COMMENT: Most busy practitioners hold strong opinions, based on clinical experience they will say, of the preferred regimen for management of common clinical problems. This study shows that strongly held beliefs may be falacious. The authors have shown that drainage of placental blood from the cord does not affect the rates of retained placenta and postpartum haemorrhage. The editor has always taught that releasing the cord clamp and allowing drainage of placental blood minimizes fetomatemal haemorrhage and assists placental delivery ‐ he stands corrected. However, draining the cord does no harm, and the reviewer of this paper commented that at least it minimizes the mess if the cord breaks during delivery of the placenta by controlled cord traction! Our common clinical regimes should be scrutinized more often, especially when clinical results or community costs are involved. This study did not attempt to assess the value to the fetus of early versus late clamping of the cord. ...
