One Cochrane systematic review was conducted to assess the effectiveness and safety of any intervention used for the treatment of primary PPH. There is no added benefit to offering misoprostol simultaneously to women receiving oxytocin for the treatment of PPH i.
Two studies reported a statistically significant lower use of additional uterotonics in the group receiving the fixed dose oxytocin-ergometrine combination RR 0. Comparison between carbetocin and syntometrine showed a lower mean blood loss in women who received carbetocin compared to syntometrine mean difference MD Six Cochrane systematic reviews provided evidence.
Among the adverse outcomes rated as important, a higher rate of vomiting RR 3. Syntometrine is more effective than oxytocin but is associated with more side effects.
The incidence of postpartum hypertension was also significantly lower in women who received carbetocin compared to those who received syntometrine. Cost-effectiveness of carbetocin was investigated by one study published as an abstract, with limited data.
WHO recommendation on routine postpartum maternal assessment. Rating the quality of evidence.
WHO recommendation on the use of uterotonics for the treatment of postpartum haemorrhage (PPH)
Evidence related to the use of various uterotonics was extrapolated from research on the prevention of PPH. Systematic reviews comparing the effects of oxytocin versus ergometrine, a fixed dose combination of oxytocin versus ergometrine, and carbetocin versus prostaglandins for the hae,orrhage of PPH were reviewed. Pregnancy, Childbirth, Postpartum and Newborn Care: Active management of third stage of labour.
The haemorhrage audience for this guideline includes health-care professionals who are responsible for developing national and local health-care protocols and policies, as well as managers of maternal and child health programmes and policy-makers in all settings.
Modifications to the recommendation, where necessary, should be justified in an explicit and transparent manner. Carbetocin versus oxytocin Evidence came from one systematic review of 11 trials women which evaluated the effect of carbetocin mcg as an IV bolus or IM injection for posttpartum prevention of PPH after vaginal delivery prevsnting caesarean section versus oxytocin, fixed dose oxytocin-ergometrine, and placebo.
Oxytocin versus ergometrine One Cochrane systematic review investigated the effects of prophylactic oxytocin versus placebo or no treatment versus ergot alkaloids: Education material for teachers of midwifery. However, these findings should be viewed with caution due prevdnting the low event rate, the small sample, and the very low quality of the evidence.
After an uncomplicated vaginal birth in a health care facility, healthy mothers and newborns should receive care in the facility for at least 24 hours after birth.
Other important adverse effects were not reported. Two review authors independently assessed trials for inclusion, assessed risk of bias and extracted data. Compared to oxytocin, carbetocin was associated with a reduced need for uterine massage following both caesarean delivery RR 0. Research implications The GDG identified these research priorities related to this recommendation: No significant difference was observed in the use of additional uterotonics in the four trials included the systematic review.
In the three studies that reported on the use of lreventing transfusion, the effect was uncertain as the confidence interval included both benefit and harm RR 1. Recommendation question For this recommendation, we aimed to answer the following question: Active management of third stage of labour Education material for teachers of midwifery.
This group of independent experts used the evidence profiles to assess evidence on effects on the pre-specified outcomes. Evidence came from one systematic review of 11 trials women which evaluated the effect of carbetocin mcg postparttum an Haeorrhage bolus or IM injection for the prevention of PPH after vaginal delivery and caesarean section versus oxytocin, fixed dose oxytocin-ergometrine, and placebo.
Of the reported critical outcomes, there was no difference in the need for blood transfusion between the groups, or for the manual removal of the placenta. A guide for essential practice Links to the supporting systematic reviews: Evidence was extrapolated from one systematic review which evaluated a number of routes and doses of misoprostol versus injectable uterotonics for the prevention of PPH.
Carbetocin for preventing postpartum haemorrhage.
No significant difference was observed between the two groups with regard to blood loss, the use of blood transfusion, or the use of additional uterotonics. Skip to main content. Background Postpartum haemorrhage PPH is defined as blood loss of ml or more within 24 hours after birth.
Among the important adverse effects postpartjm, IM prostaglandins were associated with a higher risk of vomiting RR 2.
