V.A. Sedinkin, А.М. Dokunina, V.О. Drozdova, E.V. Маksimova, М.N. Palega, Е.А. Kizoub


The article presents a clinical description of the treatment for massive obstetric hemorrhage based on a multidisciplinary approach. Questions of the clinical course and treatment mode are considered. Multidisciplinary interaction ensures clear consistency and coordination of actions of all specialists in a critical situation and, as a result, contributes to the development of optimal treatment mode in acute massive blood loss in obstetric practice. The conditions for a successful multidisciplinary approach in the treatment of acute obstetric blood loss are: constant interaction with all hospital staff who are the part of the team participating in the treatment; continuous training of personnel for key elements of the local protocol; training in assessing blood loss; constant availability to provide blood components.
