Postpartum Haemorrhage (PPH)
We are excited to release the first module in our emergency suite.
Coming Soon! A new suite of modules to our eRemote platform: the Emergency Suite.
Why is it important to refresh your knowledge about postpartum haemorrhage (PPH)?
- PPH can be serious and life-threatening.
- Most women do not have risk factors for heavy bleeding, making it difficult to predict when heavy bleeding might occur: all women giving birth are at risk of having a PPH.
- Significant blood loss can develop rapidly in the absence of haemodynamic compromise; hence, close monitoring of all women, and early recognition and rapid response, are critical.
What content is covered in this module?
- Risk factors and preventative measures for PPH.
- Steps of active management of the third stage of labour.
- A systematic assessment and management process for PPH.
- How to use the 4 Ts to identify the cause of a PPH.
- Documenting your assessment and management of the PPH.
- Communicating your assessment and management with others.
How have we made it relevant and useful for you?
The Assessment section of the CRANA framework has been broken down into 4 parts to describe how to conduct a comprehensive assessment:
- Collect data
- Form a clinical impression
- Document & communicate it
