Problem being addressed[edit | edit source]

Postpartum hemorrhaging is one of the most severe causes of maternal mortality. PPH (Postpartum hemorrhaging) rates in the developed worlds have severely decreased, but they are still a great threat in developing countries. The World Health Organization suggests that there are over 100,000 deaths due to postpartum hemorrhaging every year.

Detailed description of the solution[edit | edit source]

This device is classified as one which helps in PPH estimation. This device consists of a single use conical calibrated pouch incorporated into an underbuttocks drape type 3M™ Steri-Drape™ 1084. The pouch is placed in sterile conditions at the start of the expulsion phase. The first compartment (of two) is used at during delivery to collect the amniotic fluid and the second is positioned immediately after the birth to evaluate blood loss.
