Abstract Obstetric haemorrhage is one of the leading causes of maternal mortality. In many low-resource settings, delays in transport to referral facilities and in obtaining lifesaving treatment, contribute to maternal deaths. The non-pneumatic anti-shock garment (NASG) is a low-technology pressure device that decreases blood loss, restores vital signs, and has the potential to improve adverse outcomes by helping women survive delays in receiving adequate emergency obstetric care.

Can the Non-pneumatic Anti-Shock Garment (NASG) reduce adverse maternal outcomes from postpartum hemorrhage? Evidence from Egypt and Nigeria

The NASG showed promise for reducing blood loss, emergency hysterectomy, morbidity and mortality associated with PPH in referral facilities in Egypt and Nigeria and in a multiple logistic regression model.

Obstetric hemorrhage and shock management: using the low technology Non-pneumatic Anti-Shock Garment in Nigerian and Egyptian tertiary care facilities

Adding the NASG to standard shock and hemorrhage management may significantly improve maternal outcomes from hypovolemic shock secondary to obstetric hemorrhage at tertiary care facilities in low-resource settings.

Title Can the Non-pneumatic Anti-Shock Garment ( NASG ) reduce adverse maternal outcomes from postpartum hemorrhage ? Evidence from Egypt and Nigeria Permalink

In this non-randomized study, in which bias is inherent, the NASG showed promise for reducing blood loss, emergency hysterectomy, morbidity and mortality associated with PPH in referral facilities in Egypt and Nigeria.

Adding the NASG to standard shock and hemorrhage management may significantly improve maternal outcomes from hypovolemic shock secondary to obstetric hemorrhage at tertiary care facilities in lowresource settings.

Effectiveness of Non-pneumatic Anti-shock Garment (NASG) in Preventing Shock-related Morbidity and Mortality in Severe Hemorrhagic Shock

This reappraisal has confirmed the effectiveness of NASG in preventing shock-related morbidity and complications during obstetric delays and recommended that it should be available in every childbirth center.

Non-Pneumatic Anti-Shock Garment (NASG), a First-Aid Device to Decrease Maternal Mortality from Obstetric Hemorrhage: A Cluster Randomized Trial

Despite a lack of statistical significance, the 54% reduced odds of EAO and the significantly faster shock recovery suggest there might be treatment benefits from earlier application of the NASG for women experiencing delays obtaining definitive treatment for hypovolemic shock.

The non-pneumatic anti-shock garment for postpartum haemorrhage in nigeria

The NASG shows promise for reducing blood loss and mortality from uterine atony in women who suffered obstetric haemorrhage and a subset of women with aetiology of post-partum uterineAtony were examined.

The Mechanisms of Action of the Non-Pneumatic Anti-Shock Garment

The work presented in this chapter is preliminary and far from complete, but it represents a thorough discussion of the ongoing efforts at obtaining a better understanding of how the NASG affects human physiology, particularly that of the pregnant/postpartum woman.

Assessing the Role of the Non-Pneumatic Anti-Shock Garment in Reducing Mortality from Postpartum Hemorrhage in Nigeria

The non-pneumatic anti-shock garment (NASG), a first-aid lower-body pressure device, shows promise for reducing mortality from PPH in referral facilities in Nigeria.
