Abstract:

In recent years there has been an increase in the number of pregnancies complicated by preexisting medical conditions as well as an increase in maternal morbidity and mortality in the United States (U.S.). Racial disparities related to maternal mortality also exist. Furthermore, several studies demonstrate that 28 to 50% of maternal deaths are preventable. This presentation will outline early warning signs (obstetrical triggers) that indicate maternal compromise. Case study application will illustrate the warning signs and provide management recommendations.

Abstract:

This session addresses the competencies midwives need to manage complications and emergencies regardless of the situation, and when or where it occurs. How do we prepare for the many possibilities that can come a midwife’s way and feel confident in our abilities to think on our feet and work together for optimal outcomes? How do we improve our teamwork and ability to respond? After an emergency is over, what tools can we use to evaluate how to improve our practice? How do we heal our own trauma? We will take a look at ways to answer these questions with a focus on improving communication, teamwork, and leadership skills.

Abstract:

Despite some advances in individual technologies and strategies, hemorrhage remains one of the major killers of pregnant, childbearing, and postpartum women, especially in lower resourced settings. Maternal mortalities and morbidities have actually risen in many of these places, including in some higher resourced settings, such as the US. In this presentation we will review some of the newer innovations in hemorrhage prevention, recognition, and management, such as the improvised, low cost uterine balloon tamponade, non-pneumatic anti-shock garment, use of standardized blood mats, community distribution of oral/sublingual misoprostol, a uterine balloon that releases Tranexamic Acid, drones for blood delivery in remote areas, and more. We will discuss the influence on Ministries of Health and program managers of the World Health Organization’s recommendations on technologies for PPH. We will then describe and discuss why PPH bundles may be a more efficient way to package and train on technologies and strategies.
