|PPH affects approximately 2% of all women who give birth: PPH is a significant contributor to severe maternal morbidity and long-term disability as well as a number of other severe maternal conditions generally associated with more substantial blood loss, including shock and organ dysfunction.* Clinically, 75-80% of postpartum hemorrhages are due to uterine atony. *WHO recommendations for the prevention and treatment of postpartum haemorrhage. 2012.|
|After delivery, the arteries that fed the placenta during pregnancy are broken. To prevent bleeding, the uterus enlarged during pregnancy naturally contracts to "strangle" these arteries. However, when the uterus is not able to contract naturally (uterine atony), the arteries continue to bleed. HemoGYN does not apply a parietal pressure on the uterus, but on the contrary create a negative pressure within the uterus to stimulate and amplify the natural contractions of the uterus. And it works beautifully.|
