What is the minimum effective dose of misoprostol for the treatment of PPH? Two studies reported a statistically significant lower use of additional uterotonics in the group receiving the fixed dose oxytocin-ergometrine combination RR 0. Six trials compared carbetocin with oxytocin; four of these were conducted for women undergoing caesarean deliveries, one was for women fof vaginal deliveries and one did not state the mode of delivery clearly.

Carbetocin for preventing postpartum haemorrhage.

There was no observed difference reported in high blood pressure in women treated with oxytocin only RR 0. World Health Organization; Comparison between carbetocin and syntometrine showed a lower mean blood loss precenting women who received carbetocin compared to syntometrine mean difference MD Prophylactic oxytocin for the third stage of labour.

Including this trial in the meta-analysis changes the results RR 0.

The use of uterotonics oxytocin alone as the first choice plays a central role in the treatment of PPH. Intravenous oxytocin alone is the recommended uterotonic drug for the treatment of PPH. Background Postpartum haemorrhage PPH is defined as blood loss of ml or more within 24 hours after birth. When compared to oxytocin, carbetocin was associated with a reduced use of additional uterotonic drugs after caesarean delivery RR 0. PPH is the primary cause of nearly one-fifth of all maternal deaths globally.


Carbetocin for preventing postpartum haemorrhage.

Local professional societies may play important roles in this process and an all-inclusive and participatory process should be encouraged.

No differences in blood transfusion in women receiving oxytocin compared with women receiving ergometrine RR 3. Medical fir 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 Carbetocin, a long-acting oxytocin agonist, appears to be a promising agent for the prevention of PPH.

In the three studies that reported on the use of blood transfusion, the effect was uncertain as the confidence interval included both benefit and harm RR 1. Two review authors independently assessed trials for carnetocin, assessed risk of bias and extracted data.

Active versus expectant management for women in the third stage of labour. GDG members discussed the balance between desirable and undesirable effects, overall quality of supporting evidence, values and preferences of stakeholders, resource requirements, cost-effectiveness, acceptability, feasibility and equity, to finalize the recommendation and remarks. 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 with postpartum haemorrhage, which is the uterotonic of choice to improve outcomes? If PPH prophylaxis with misoprostol has been administered and if injectable uterotonics are unavailable, there is insufficient evidence to guide further misoprostol dosing and consideration must be given to the risk of potential toxicity.

The use of misoprostol as an adjunct for the treatment of women who received therapeutic oxytocin for PPH added no benefit. The systematic review reported a reduction in the risk of PPH, with posfpartum use of carbetocin versus oxytocin for women who underwent caesarean section. Research implications The GDG identified these research priorities related to this recommendation: Recommendation Intravenous oxytocin alone is the recommended uterotonic drug for the treatment of PPH.


WHO recommendations on interventions to improve preterm birth outcomes. Update of Cochrane Database Syst Rev. Of the five identified studies in which IM oxytocin was used as a comparator womenthree of these studies women compared the fixed dose combination of oxytocin-ergometrine versus 10 IU of IM oxytocin. This video demonstrates the methods for examination of the placenta.

Most of these deaths occur during the first 24 hours after birth. Use of carbetocin resulted in a statistically significant reduction in the need for therapeutic uterotonics risk ratio RR 0.
