The broad objective of the study is to determine if the Bakri Postpartum Balloon is effective in preventing morbidity and mortality from postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) as part of a standardized management algorithm.
- To estimate the rate of morbidity (including operative intervention and peripartum hysterectomy) and mortality secondary to PPH in 4 academic centers after introduction of a standardized protocol for management of PPH, but prior to the inclusion of the Bakri Postpartum Balloon as part of the protocol.
- To estimate the rate of morbidity (including operative intervention and peripartum hysterectomy) and mortality secondary to PPH in 4 academic centers after introduction of a standardized protocol for management of PPH, after the inclusion of the Bakri Postpartum Balloon as part of the protocol.
- To compare morbidity
- To generate preliminary data for (a) a larger confirmatory study of the use of the Bakri Postpartum Balloon in centers with surgical and blood transfusion services, and (b) design of a pilot study of the use of the Bakri device of temporary control of PPH in settings outside of surgical centers (such as by trained midwives or emergency transport personnel).
|Condition or disease|
Phase I: Development and training of staff in standardized algorithm for management of PPH using available local resources (not including Bakri balloon).
Phase II: Data collection after introduction of the standardized algorithm.
Phase III: Revision of protocol to include the Bakri Postpartum Device
Phase IV: Data collection after introduction of the Bakri device

- Composite clinical outcome [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]
The primary outcome of the study is a composite clinical outcome consisting of:
- Blood transfusion
- Renal failure (creatinine >1.5 mg/dL or increased >1.0 mg/dL above baseline, oliguria <120 ml output in 4 hour intervals)
- Respiratory impairment (impairment of respiratory function requiring ventilation, oxygen supplementation, or decreased physical activity compared to pre-pregnancy levels)
- Central nervous system impairment (seizures, loss of consciousness, or cognitive/motor loss)
- Heart failure (NYHA class III or IV)
- Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) based on clinical and laboratory assessment if available.
- Abdominal surgery to control hemorrhage in non-cesarean patients
- Emergency hysterectomy. Outcomes and definitions are similar to those used in other studies of PPH management in Africa.
- Unit of estimated blood loss [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]Mean and median estimated blood loss
- Number of women with febrile morbidity [ Time Frame: 24 hours ]febrile morbidity and individual rates of the components of the composite primary outcome
