Hemorrhage remains a leading cause of pregnancy-related morbidity and mortality. A rapid collaborative approach to management of the woman experiencing excessive blood loss is required to optimize outcomes. Successful treatment of the hemorrhaging pregnant woman is dependent on early recognition of bleeding and clinical manifestations of shock, treatment of the underlying cause of the hemorrhage, and simultaneous restoration of adequate circulating volume as well as blood component therapy. Early communication with providers, identified triggers for changes in patient condition, and drills/simulations with the multidisciplinary healthcare team are critical strategies for improving response and outcomes.
