Postpartum haemorrhage is excessive bleeding after childbirth. The most common cause is the separation of the placenta from the uterus, but other causes include cervical lacerations, a large episiotomy or a ruptured uterus.
Part of the World Clinics: Obstetrics & Gynecology series, this new volume is a comprehensive guide to postpartum haemorrhage. Beginning with a list of useful abbreviations, the book covers both primary and secondary causes of the condition, describing both surgical and non-surgical management techniques.
With contributions from many UK-based specialists, this manual includes WHO (World Health Organisation) and FIGO (International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics) protocols and recommendations.
