Active management of third stage of labour Education material for teachers of midwifery. One trial compared the preventting of intravenous carbetocin with placebo.
Misoprostol any route versus injectable uterotonics Evidence was extrapolated from one systematic review which evaluated a number of routes and doses of misoprostol versus injectable uterotonics for the prevention of PPH. Intravenous oxytocin alone is the recommended uterotonic drug for the treatment of PPH. Pregnancy, Childbirth, Postpartum and Newborn Care: Among the adverse outcomes rated as important, a higher rate of vomiting RR 3. Most of these deaths occur during the first 24 hours after birth.
WHO recommendation on the use of uterotonics for the treatment of postpartum haemorrhage (PPH)
Treatment of post-partum haemorrhage with sublingual misoprostol versus oxytocin in women receiving prophylactic oxytocin: Evidence came from one systematic review of 11 trials women which evaluated the effect of carbetocin mcg as an IV bolus or IM injection for the prevention of PPH after vaginal delivery and caesarean section versus oxytocin, fixed dose oxytocin-ergometrine, and placebo.
In settings where IV oxytocin is unavailable to women who have received prophylactic IM oxytocin during the third stage of labour, the GDG considered misoprostol to be a valid alternative. An enabling environment for example, by widening the availability of uterotonicsshould be created for the use of this recommendation for example, by widening the availability of crystalloid solutionincluding changes in the behaviour of health care practitioners to enable the use of evidence-based practices.
Postpartum haemorrhage PPH is defined as blood loss of ml or more within 24 hours after birth. No difference was observed in the risk of blood loss, the additional use of uterotonics, or the need for blood transfusion.
Medical eligibility criteria for contraceptive use. Of the reported critical outcomes, there was no difference prevennting the need for blood transfusion between the groups, or for the manual removal of the placenta.
Carbetocin for preventing postpartum haemorrhage.
It encourages health care decision-makers in these heamorrhage to strive to make oxytocin available. For women with postpartum haemorrhage, which is the uterotonic of choice to improve outcomes?
Medical eligibility criteria for contraceptive use MECthe first edition of which was published inpresents current WHO guidance on the safety of various contraceptive methods for use in the context Compared to oxytocin, carbetocin was associated with a reduced need for uterine massage following both caesarean delivery RR 0.
Doses of oxytocin used ranged from 2 IU to 10 IU, while the fixed drug combination doses consisted of 5 IU of oxytocin and 0. The systematic review reported a reduction in the risk of PPH, with the use of carbetocin versus oxytocin for women who underwent caesarean section.
World Health Organization, The majority could be prevented through the use of prophylactic uterotonics during the third stage of labour, and by timely and appropriate management. The guideline will also be useful to In addition, an increase in the risk of shivering was associated with the use of misoprostol RR 2. Cost-effectiveness of carbetocin was investigated by one study published as an abstract, with limited data.
Two review authors independently assessed trials for inclusion, assessed risk of bias and extracted data. The use of uterotonics oxytocin alone as the first choice plays a central role in the treatment of PPH.
An increased risk of hyperthermia, vomiting and shivering was observed.
Four trials compared intramuscular carbetocin and intramuscular syntometrine for women undergoing vaginal deliveries. Daily iron supplementation in infants and children. Two studies reported a statistically significant lower use of additional uterotonics in the group receiving the fixed dose oxytocin-ergometrine combination RR 0.
This document is part of the process for improving the quality of care in family planning. Syntometrine is more effective than oxytocin but is associated with more side effects. Three of the trials were on women with no risk factor for PPH, while one trial was on women with risk factors for PPH. No significant difference was observed in the use of additional uterotonics in the four trials included the systematic review.
Evidence profiles in the form of GRADE tables were prepared for comparisons of interest, including the assessment and judgments for each outcome, and the estimated risks. Local professional societies may play important roles in this process and an all-inclusive and participatory process should be encouraged.
This is, however, limited by the number of studies and risk of bias in the studies. There was no observed difference reported in high blood pressure in women treated with oxytocin only RR 0. Randomised controlled trials which compared oxytocin agonist carbetocin with other uterotonic agents or with placebo or no treatment for the prevention of PPH.
Other important adverse effects were not reported. After an uncomplicated vaginal birth in a health care facility, healthy mothers and newborns should receive care in the facility for at least 24 hours after birth. Carbetocin versus oxytocin Evidence came from one systematic review of 11 trials women which evaluated the effect of carbetocin mcg as an IV bolus or IM injection for the prevention of PPH after vaginal delivery and caesarean section versus oxytocin, fixed dose oxytocin-ergometrine, and placebo.
PPH is the primary cause of nearly one-fifth of all maternal deaths globally. Further research is needed to analyse the cost-effectiveness of carbetocin as a uterotonic agent. Six trials compared carbetocin with oxytocin; four of these were conducted for women undergoing caesarean deliveries, one was for women following vaginal deliveries and postpartu did not state the mode of delivery clearly.

The use of misoprostol as an adjunct for the treatment of women who received therapeutic oxytocin for PPH added no benefit. Update in Cochrane Database Syst Rev. Evidence was extrapolated from one systematic review which evaluated a number of routes and doses of misoprostol versus injectable uterotonics for the prevention of PPH.
For women in the postoperative period after the surgical repair of a simple obstetric urinary fistula, short duration prevenging catheterization 7 to 10 days is recommended as an alternative to longer duration of catheterization.
