Bleeding in the puerperium
Bleeding from the birth canal, which occurs in women after the end of the birth process, is called postpartum hemorrhage. Such negative consequences can be observed both in the early stages, and in the late period after the termination of childbirth. Such consequences can arise for various reasons, but more often they consist in complications arising in the process of childbirth, which are not eliminated in time by midwives. Depending on how much blood a woman lost, the degree of postpartum hemorrhage is determined. Diagnosis of such a malaise is carried out by examining the specialist canal, as well as with an additional survey of ultrasound. If postpartum haemorrhage is detected, it is important to take immediate measures of treatment, otherwise it can endanger the patient fatal. Consider what is postpartum bleeding, how it manifests itself and how it is treated.
Postpartum hemorrhage in parturient women is an abundant blood loss from the vagina that occurs after the birth of the child. But after giving birth in women, discharge from the vagina of blood, clots and mucus is normal. The norm is considered the discharge of blood in an amount of 0.5% of the patient’s weight. All other cases of discharge of blood from the vagina in large volumes represent a serious violation of the integrity of the system, and requires immediate surgical intervention.
