Aim:  To compare maternal mortality and morbidity due to postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) at Minia University Maternity Hospital, El‐Minia, Egypt, before and while external aortic compression was applied as an adjunct intervention, and to identify the effect of aortic compression. 
Advances in the treatment of postpartum hemorrhage
TLDR
Improving the management of PPH in limited-resource settings will require continued attention to ensure the availability of low-cost accessible prevention and treatment options, in addition to a focus on skilled care providers. Expand
Raised nitric oxide levels may cause atonic postpartum hemorrhage in women with anemia during pregnancy
TLDR
To determine the association of hemoglobin (Hb) and plasma nitrite (PN) concentrations on admission to the delivery ward with the occurrence of atonic postpartum hemorrhage (PPH), Hb and PNH concentrations are measured on the day of delivery. Expand
Adjuvant Effect of Aortic Compression and Carbetocin Injection in Management of Primary Atonic Pph to Improve Outcome
Methodology: This retrospective observational study included 724 patients with GA between (37-42) weeks .Patients were allocated into four groups according to managed received. All patients receivedExpand
Placenta accreta, increta, and percreta.
TLDR
The prenatal diagnosis of placenta accreta by ultrasound along with risk factors including placente previa and prior cesarean delivery can aid in delivery planning and improved outcomes. Expand

Blood flow changes in pelvic vessels associated with the application of an abdominal compression belt in healthy postpartum women
TLDR
This preliminary study only shows that the application of the PPH compression belt has no apparent adverse changes in the iliac, uterine and femoral artery blood flow in postpartum mothers. Expand
Proximal External Aortic Compression for Life-Threatening Abdominal-Pelvic and Junctional Hemorrhage: An Ultrasonographic Study in Adult Volunteers
TLDR
It is suggested that it may be reasonable to attempt temporization of major abdominal-pelvic and junctional hemorrhage using bimanual proximal external aortic compression in healthy adult men. Expand
Prehospital aortic blood flow control techniques for non-compressible traumatic hemorrhage.
TLDR
Compared with EAC, AAJT and REBOA have greater potentials in the management of traumatic hemorrhage and are recommended for better control of the aorta blood flow in prehospital settings. Expand
Temporization of penetrating abdominal-pelvic trauma with manual external aortic compression: a novel case report.
TLDR
This report outlines the first case in the peer-reviewed literature of manual external aortic compression after severe trauma and successfully temporized external bleeding for more than 10 minutes and restored consciousness to the moribund victim. Expand
Abdominal Aortic and Iliac Artery Compression Following Penetrating Trauma: A Study of Feasibility
TLDR
This work suggests that bimanual compression following penetrating junctional trauma is feasible, however, it is difficult, and is not likely achievable or sustainable by a majority of rescuers. Expand

Preventing postpartum hemorrhage in low‐resource settings
TLDR
Review of the literature confirms that active management of the third stage of labor, especially the administration of uterotonic drugs, reduces the risk of PPH due to uterine atony without increasing the incidence of retained placenta or other serious complications. Expand

TLDR
The causes, risk factors, prevention, and clinical management of primary postpartum hemorrhage--a major cause of maternal mortality--are outlined in this report for clinicians and step-by-step clinical management guidelines are presented. Expand
El-menia air inflated balloon in controlling atonic post partum hemorrhage.
TLDR
El-Menia balloon is an inexpensive, easy to apply, effective in controlling APPH with minimal side effects and is targeted for use on a large scale in developing countries to reduce the maternal mortality and morbidity caused by APPH. Expand

TLDR
Successful treatment of exsanguinating postpartum hemorrhage depends on efficient collaboration among all members of the patient care team, and a management plan based on an understanding of the pathophysiology of shock and tailored to the individual patient's situation. Expand

External Abdominal Aortic Compression: A Study of a Resuscitation Manoeuvre for Postpartum Haemorrhage
TLDR
It is recommended that external aortic compression be considered in severe life-threatening postpartum haemorrhage, particularly during stabilisation or transport of the patient, particularly in locations or situations where advanced medical assistance is geographically or temporally removed.
