• Management of Acute Postpartum Hemorrhage in Senegal.
In Senegal, maternal mortality is 222.9 per 100,000
live births. Acute postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) complicates
3.1 % of all births, 44.2 % of direct causes of maternal deaths,
and 33.6 % of all maternal deaths. Major causes include uterine
atony, trauma, coagulation disorders, and total or partial
retention of the placenta. A newer technique to address acute
postpartum hemorrhage is the use of the condom balloon catheter.
In Senegal, prevention means following theWorld Health
Organization (WHO) recommendation of active management
of the third stage of labor for all women in labor. This practice
necessitates close collaboration of a multidisciplinary team
comprising obstetricians, midwives, anesthetists, radiologists,
and biologists. Obstetric care should be conducted simultaneously
