Evaluation During Postpartum Hemorrhage.
Clinical obstetrics and gynecology
Postpartum hemorrhage is an obstetric emergency that is the leading and the most preventable cause of maternal death that occurs on the day of birth. The treatment of postpartum hemorrhage in a timely fashion is crucial to prevent morbidity and mortality. The accurate assessment of blood loss during delivery and the postpartum period remains a major challenge. Hence, it is imperative to have a standardized evaluation strategy for accurate assessment of blood loss, adequate classification of hemorrhage, and timely initiated interventions. The multidisciplinary evaluation strategy should be in place regardless of the delivery route.
