Reduction of PPH at Sahlgrenska University Hospital

Updated: Jun 14

In December 2023 Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Sweden had a major focus on postpartum haemorrhage with a repetition of the hospital protocol for management of PPH.

Practicing external aortic compression on the ExAC Trainer was one of several steps to combat a high incidence of sever PPH (> 1000ml).

In the following months, the incidence of PPH after vaginal delivery declined from 10,2 in December 2023 to 8,4 in January 2024.

This highlights the importance of regularly

practicing and focusing on prevention of severe PPH. ExAC is proud having been a part of their efforts and extend our congratulations with the result!
