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

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.
