Title: Cases of Postpartum Hemorrhage and Hysterectomy in Thailand's Northern and Northeastern Provincial Hospitals


PPH is a major cause of maternal death. Hysterectomy is safe to treat uncontrollable PPH. However, it may not be the best option for women who want to have children. The risk score tool to detect PPH earlier is needed in low-resource cities such as Chiang Rai and Sakon Nakhon province. This study aims to perform a risk score tool to prevent PPH in the northern and northeastern hospitals in Thailand. Using mixed methods, 1) identify risk factors for PPH from twenty articles globally and in Thailand using Med Calc, and 2) develop the tool for prediction of PPH. 3) tool testing and a one-year follow-up on PPH-related hysterectomy cases. Results showed that this risk score tool can detect PPH earlier, reducing the number of PPH and hysterectomy cases. This risk score tool needs to be implemented in the same situation as hospitals to save pregnant women's lives.
