Aim:  To evaluate the external aortic compression device (EACD) as a first aid to control postpartum hemorrhage (PPH). 
Internal iliac artery ligation for severe postpartum hemorrhage and severe hemorrhage after postpartum hysterectomy
TLDR
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of internal iliac artery ligation performed for severe postpartum hemorrhage in women with deep vein thrombosis. Expand
Experience managing postpartum hemorrhage at Minia University Maternity Hospital, Egypt: No mortality using external aortic compression
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 appliedExpand
Assessing changes in flow velocimetry and clinical outcome following use of an external aortic compression device in women with postpartum hemorrhage
To monitor femoral artery blood flow by Doppler velocimetry in women treated for postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) with and without the adjunction of the External Aortic Compression Device (EACD), and toExpand
Obstetrical Management of Postpartum Hemorrhage
TLDR
Practical obstetric techniques for management of postpartum hemorrhage are reviewed and there is a paucity of data to guide specific interventions for treatment. Expand
Prehospital External Aortic Compression for Temporizing Exsanguinating Sub-Diaphragmatic Hemorrhage – A Promising Technique, but with Challenges: Four Illustrative Cases, Including Two Survivors
TLDR
It is shown that EAC has life-saving potential in the prehospital setting, but that safety and efficacy during transport requires the use of a hands-free compression device, such as an aortic tourniquet. Expand
External Aortic Compression in Noncompressible Truncal Hemorrhage and Traumatic Cardiac Arrest: A Scoping Review.
TLDR
It is found that the role of external aortic compression warrants further research, and the intervention may have a role as a bridge to definitive treatment of noncompressible truncal haemorrahge. Expand
Effect of sublingual misoprostol versus intravenous oxytocin on reducing blood loss at cesarean section in Nigeria: A randomized controlled trial
Aims:  The aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness and safety of sublingual misoprostol with i.v. oxytocin infusion administered after delivery in reducing blood loss at cesarean sectionExpand
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
Procedures and Uterine-Sparing Surgeries for Managing Postpartum Hemorrhage: A Systematic Review
TLDR
A limited body of evidence addresses these interventions for PPH on control of bleeding and adverse effects including infertility and adverse pregnancy outcomes; understand the issues in defining and diagnosing PPH; and understand the areas of future research need. 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.

Pressure of 20 to 25 mm Hg circumferentially applied to the abdomen and legs for periods up to 48 hours is a safe, effective, and practical adjunct to standard medical and surgical techniques forExpand
Prevention and treatment of postpartum hemorrhage: new advances for low-resource settings.
TLDR
New strategies to prevent and manage postpartum hemorrhage in developing countries, such as community-based use of misoprostol, oxytocin in the Uniject delivery system, the non-inflatable antishock garment to stabilize and resuscitate hypovolemic shock, and the balloon condom catheter to treat intractable uterine bleeding are reviewed.

TLDR
This discussion provides a practical approach to establish an accurate diagnosis of PPH and an expeditious application of medical, surgical, and radiographic management. 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
Prevention and management of postpartum hemorrhage.
TLDR
Early recognition, systematic evaluation and treatment, and prompt fluid resuscitation minimize the potentially serious outcomes associated with postpartum hemorrhage. Expand
Control of Hemorrhage in Critical Femoral or Inguinal Penetrating Wounds—An Ultrasound Evaluation
TLDR
Flow to the CFA can be stopped completely with pressure over the distal Abdominal Aorta or proximal iliac artery in catastrophic wounds, but a first responder still may need to apply upward of 120 pounds of pressure to stop exsanguination. Expand
Emergency obstetric care in developing countries: impact of guidelines implementation in a community hospital in Senegal
Objective  To evaluate, with volunteer professionals in a resource‐poor setting, an approach of audit and feedback to promote local implementation of emergency obstetric guidelines.
Different Doses of Sublingual Misoprostol versus Methylergometrine for the Prevention of Atonic Postpartum Haemorrhage.
TLDR
Misoprostol in high dose may be used for managing third stage of labour to reduce maternal morbidity and mortality due to APPH particularly, in the poor underdeveloped countries where, facilities to deliver in health centers, purchase and store the oxytocic ampoules or medically trained persons are not readily available in all places. Expand
Obstetric haemorrhage.
TLDR
The figures reveal that maternal mortality rates due to haemorrhage are almost 25 times greater in South Africa than in the UK, and there if concern that postpartum haem orrhage rates are increasing. Expand
