Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) remains one of the leading causes of maternal morbidity and mortality worldwide, although the lack of a precise definition precludes accurate data of the absolute prevalence of PPH. 
Use of the shock index to predict maternal outcomes in women referred for postpartum hemorrhage
TLDR
To evaluate the clinical significance of various vital signs in women referred for postpartum hemorrhage, a large number of them were found to have had a history of bleeding after giving birth. Expand
The impact of prepartum factor XIII activity on postpartum blood loss
Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH), a major cause of maternal mortality, has several known risk factors but frequently occurs unexpectedly. PPH incidence and related maternal morbidity and mortality areExpand
Severe postpartum haemorrhage as first presenting symptom of an inherited bleeding disorder
TLDR
The value of haemostatic evaluation in women with severe PPH was explored and it was found that the former is more important than the latter in determining the severity of the disease. Expand
Association of Timing of Plasma Transfusion With Adverse Maternal Outcomes in Women With Persistent Postpartum Hemorrhage
This cohort study examines the association of timing of receipt of plasma transfusions among women experiencing persistent postpartum hemorrhage with adverse maternal outcomes.
Postpartum haemorrhage requiring transfusion and risk of cardiovascular disease later in life: a retrospective cohort study
TLDR
To determine whether postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) is associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD), including cerebrovascular and ischaemic heart disease beyond the peripartum period, data are needed to establish a causal relationship between PPH and CVD. Expand
The association between ragged or incomplete membranes and postpartum haemorrhage: A retrospective cohort study
The association between an incomplete placenta and postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) is well documented; however, the significance of ragged or incomplete membranes has not been explored as an independentExpand
Medical Advances in the Treatment of Postpartum Hemorrhage
TLDR
Evidence is summarized for current management strategies for patients with major obstetric hemorrhage, including rapid laboratory assessment of coagulopathy, early transfusion of plasma and high plasma-to-red blood cell transfusion ratios in massive PPH, and use of tranexamic acid and fibrinogen concentrates in the setting of PPH complicated by coagula. Expand
Laboratory Testing and Predictors of Severe Postpartum Hemorrhage
TLDR
The following case study reviews the data on laboratory markers which predict progression to severe postpartum hemorrhage, juxtaposing the physiologic changes in obstetric hemostasis with interpreting abnormal values. Expand
Hematologic Challenges in the Critically Ill: Obstetrics
TLDR
This chapter will consider the epidemiology and management considerations for many of these hematologic challenges in critically ill pregnant women, with a focus on hemorrhage. Expand
Success factors for Bakri™ balloon usage secondary to uterine atony: a retrospective, multicentre study
Post‐partum haemorrhage (PPH) is one of the major obstetric complications and remains a cause of avoidable maternal mortality and morbidity.

TLDR
Proper and timely diagnosis of PPH should above all include accurate estimation of blood loss before vital signs change, andimation ofBlood loss by calibrated bags has been shown to be significantly more accurate than visual estimation at vaginal delivery. Expand
Diagnosis and treatment of peripartum bleeding
TLDR
An interdisciplinary expert committee was formed, with members from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, to summarize recent scientific findings onvere peripartum hemorrhage and changes in the management of PPH including new surgical options and the off-label use of recombinant factor VIIa. Expand

TLDR
The epidemiology of postpartum hemorrhage, including the incidence and temporal trends as well as the causes and risk factors associated with it are presented. Expand
Use of recombinant activated factor VII in massive postpartum haemorrhage.
TLDR
There appears to be a role for the use of rFVIIa in PPH unresponsive to conventional therapy and Recombinant FVIIa can be helpful and avoid an emergency hysterectomy. Expand

TLDR
This consensus is intended to allow physicians to better recognize bleeding disorders as a cause of menorrhagia and consequently offer effective disease-specific therapies. Expand
Elevated prepartum fibrinogen levels are not associated with a reduced risk of postpartum hemorrhage
TLDR
Elevated prepartum fibrinogen levels are not associated with a reduced risk of postpartum hemorrhage, and this finding is consistent with previous findings. Expand

TLDR
These guidelines provide guidelines to help clinicians prevent and manage excessive bleeding postpartum and establish practices to facilitate the identification of women who may be at particularly high risk of PPH. Expand

The Epidemiology of Postpartum Hemorrhage in a Large, Nationwide Sample of Deliveries
TLDR
PPH caused by uterine atony resulting in transfusion often occurs in the absence of recognized risk factors and is associated with substantial maternal morbidity and mortality. Expand
