Obstetric haemorrhage and the use of blood and blood products

  • N du Plessis

Abstract

Obstetric haemorrhage remains one of the most challenging conditions to manage in pregnancy. Irrespective of the level of skill and experience of the
attending health care provider, bleeding of an obstetric patient poses many difficulties from the moment of presentation, through making the correct diagnosis and providing timely and life-saving treatment. Prompt resuscitation and reversal of coagulopathy are critical while definitive measures are carried out to arrest the bleeding.
