BBTS 2016: Plenary IV
The demands and problems of Blood, Bleeding and Anaemia could not be more poignant than in patients who suffer Post Partum Haemorrhage. PPH is a devastating complication of birth, with threatening complications and real risk of dying. How, should this be managed, is it preventable and problems avoidable?
On Fridays plenary session at the BBTS this week, we have the opportunity to hear from experts in the management of bleeding and management of PPH. Simple techniques and protocols that can change outcomes.
Intended Audience: All those who may be involved in PPH; midwives, obstetricians, anaesthetists , haematologists, blood bank BMS, intensive care clinicians and transfusion practitioners.
Learning Objectives: To enlighten the audience on how tranexamic acid and cell salvage, together with early and appropriate use of blood component therapy guided by POC testing may impact of transfusion incidence and have an impact on survival in PPH. How, following PPH, anaemia should be managed as the patient recovers.
Brief Description: PPH is unfortunately common. Maternal death is extremely high in many countries, even in developed countries, despite their wealth and availability of clinicians, there can be difficulties in management and the impacts remain an issue to patients and staff.
Is unwashed cell salvage and use of tranexamic acid an answer? When and what coagulation tests should be done. How do you manage the sequalae of anaemia and maternal health?
These questions and solutions will be discussed on Friday 11am at the BBTS Annual Conference.
