To evaluate the validity of WHO's near-miss approach in a low-resource, high maternal mortality setting.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: PloS one
The article by Samuel Oppong et al in this issue of the BJOG makes interesting reading (Oppong et al. BJOG xxxx). It describes a study carried out in three tertiary referral hospitals in Southern Gh...
With the reduction of maternal mortality, maternal near miss (MNM) has been used as a complementary indicator of maternal health. The objective of this study was to assess the frequency of MNM in east...
To investigate the burden and health service events surrounding severe maternal outcomes (SMO) related to life-threatening postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) in Nigerian public tertiary hospitals.
World Health Organization recommends the use of maternal near miss as a tool to monitor and improve quality of obstetric care. Severe maternal outcome corresponds to the sum of maternal near miss and ...
Pregnancy-related critical illness leads to death for 3-14% of affected women. Although identifying patients at risk could facilitate preventive strategies, guide therapy, and help in clinical researc...
Main objectives: To evaluate the impact of weekly vitamin A supplementation (VAS) to women of reproductive age (15-45 years) on maternal mortality in rural Ghana, and to compare this with ...
Maternal mortality is still high in Ethiopia. Antenatal care (ANC), use of skilled delivery attendants and postnatal care (PNC) services are key maternal health care services that can sign...
This will be a prospective randomized controlled trial comparing CO2 insufflation and WE in terms of right colon combined adenoma miss rate (AMR) and hyperplastic polyp miss rate (HPMR) by...
The aim of this study is to determine the validity of Kleinhauer Betke in women with known hemoglobinopathy for fetal-maternal hemorrhage.
The purpose of this trial is to determine whether providing women with a weekly oral supplement of vitamin A, either preformed or as beta-carotene, at a dosage equivalent to a recommended ...
Maternal deaths resulting from complications of pregnancy and childbirth in a given population.
Pregnancy in which the mother and/or FETUS are at greater than normal risk of MORBIDITY or MORTALITY. Causes include inadequate PRENATAL CARE, previous obstetrical history (ABORTION, SPONTANEOUS), pre-existing maternal disease, pregnancy-induced disease (GESTATIONAL HYPERTENSION), and MULTIPLE PREGNANCY, as well as advanced maternal age above 35.
Demographic and epidemiologic changes that have occurred in the last five decades in many developing countries and that are characterized by major growth in the number and proportion of middle-aged and elderly persons and in the frequency of the diseases that occur in these age groups. The health transition is the result of efforts to improve maternal and child health via primary care and outreach services and such efforts have been responsible for a decrease in the birth rate; reduced maternal mortality; improved preventive services; reduced infant mortality, and the increased life expectancy that defines the transition.
