|Abstract:||© 2020, Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University. Objective: To evaluate the incidence, risk factors, and pregnancy outcomes of primary postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) after the implementation of postpartum drape with a calibrated bag (PDCB) after normal vaginal delivery. Methods: This retrospective chart review compared patients who had normal vaginal delivery in June 2012 prior to PDCB implementation with patients who had normal vaginal delivery in June 2014 after PDCB implementation at Siriraj Hospital. Results: In total, 856 patients were included in this study, with 458 and 398 patients delivered in June 2012 and June 2014, respectively. Baseline characteristics were comparable between the two groups. The incidence of primary PPH increased significantly after the implementation of PDCB (2.8% in 2012 vs. 8.5% in 2014; p < 0.01). The incidence of severe PPH was also significantly increased (0.4% in 2012 vs. 2.3% in 2014; p = 0.02). Uterine atony was the most common cause and the diagnosis increased after PCDB implementation. The use of additional uterotonic drugs was also significantly increased after PDCB implementation (30.8% in 2012 vs. 85.3% in 2014; p < 0.01). The blood transfusion rate was comparable between the two groups. No peripartum hysterectomy or ICU admission was observed in this study. After PDCB implementation, pregnancy-induced hypertension was found to be a significant risk factor for primary PPH (p < 0.01). Conclusion: The incidence of primary and severe PPH, and the rate of the use of additional uterotonic drugs were all significantly increased after the implementation of PDCB. Pregnancy-induced hypertension was found to be a significant risk factor for primary PPH.|
