Patient blood management in obstetrics: prevention and treatment of postpartum haemorrhage. A NATA consensus statement

Postpartum haemorrhage remains a common obstetric emergency and is the leading cause for maternal mortality worldwide.

The aim of this multidisciplinary consensus statement, published online ahead of print in Blood Transfusion on February 6, 2019, is to provide recommendations on the prevention and treatment of postpartum haemorrhage as part of patient blood management in obstetrics.

It was developed by NATA in collaboration with the International Federation of Gynaecology and Obstetrics (FIGO), the European Board and College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (EBCOG) and the European Society of Anaesthesiology (ESA).
