A Textbook of Postpartum Hemorrhage: Chapter 17: Management of Postpartum Hemorrhage at the Community Level


Chapter 17 in A Textbook of Postpartum Hemorrhage discussing Management of Postpartum Hemorrhage at the Community Level

The objective of this book is to bring together within a single volume the most up to date information about the epidemiology, diagnosis and management of postpartum hemorrhage. Whilst much has been published on the subject a truly comprehensive synthesis of this kind has never before been attempted. This volume sets out, therefore, to provide physicians with an overall clinical perspective that has hitherto been unavailable.

The ability to manage postpartum hemorrhage at the community level is an essential element in any program to decrease maternal mortality from postpartum hemorrhage, as most of the deliveries in developing countries occur at home without the presence of a skilled birth attendant.
