Efficacy Study of the Non-Pneumatic Anti-Shock Garment (NASG) in Egypt

2014-08-27 03:45:36 | BioPortfolio


This study will test the efficacy of the NASG on women suffering from obstetric hemorrhage as compared to hemorrhaging women who do not receive the NASG.


This is a comparative, pre-post study of the non-pneumatic anti-shock garment (NASG) to establish its effectiveness in reducing maternal mortality and morbidity due to obstetrical hemorrhage. The sites are two maternity teaching hospitals in Egypt: El Galaa, in Cairo and Assiut University in Assiut.

There are two Main Aims:

Aim 1: To test the efficacy of the NASG on women suffering from obstetric hemorrhage as compared to hemorrhaging women who do not receive the NASG. Our primary outcomes are mortality and severe morbidity. Secondary outcomes include: a) decreased blood loss due to obstetric hemorrhage, b) fewer emergency hysterectomies, and c) more rapid recovery from shock in the intervention group as compared to the control group.

Aim 2: Using the same study design, to examine side effects that might be associated with NASG use, including a) decreased urine output, b) hypoxia, dyspnea, or other form of respiratory distress, c) nausea and vomiting in the intervention group as compared to the control group.

An abnormally low volume of blood circulating through the body. It may result in hypovolemic shock (see SHOCK).

A family of heat-shock proteins that contain a 70 amino-acid consensus sequence known as the J domain. The J domain of HSP40 heat shock proteins interacts with HSP70 HEAT-SHOCK PROTEINS.
