Abstract
Postpartum hemorrhage is a major cause of maternal morbidity. In developing nations, where maternal mortality rates are five to ten per 1,000 live birth, postpartum hemorrhage remains a leading cause of maternal death. Most cases of postpartum hemorrhage are due to uterine atony, retained placenta, maternal soft-tissue trauma, or a combination of these factors. Hemorrhage is thus often perceived as a sporadic, unpredictable event, making it difficult to counsel patients rationally. We report a case of massive transfusion and its complication following massive bleeding after vaginal delivery.
Key Words: Postpartum hemorrhage, Massive transfusion
