Abstract

Major obstetric haemorrhage still remains one of the leading causes of maternal mortality in the west African subregion and worldwide and hence close monitoring of the vital signs of patients will ensure early detection and prompt management. Massive Obstetric haemorrhage when detected early and adequately managed will prevent severe maternal morbidity and mortality. We report the anaesthetic challenges of two cases of massive obstetric haemorrhage that were successfully managed.
