World Maternal Antifibrinolytic Trial_2

Postpartum haemorrhage (PPH) is responsible for about 100,000 maternal deaths every year, almost all of which occur in low and middle income countries. When given within three hours of birth, tranexamic acid reduces deaths due to bleeding in women with PPH by almost one third. However, for many women, treatment of PPH is too late to prevent death and severe morbidities. Over one-third of pregnant women in the world are anaemic and many are severely anaemic. We now want to do th...

Asia Pregnancy Outcomes Study

Preterm birth is a major cause of child mortality and morbidity, most of which occurs in south-east Asia and sub-Saharan Africa. To date few neonatal cause of death studies, especially in low- and middle-income countries have determined the specific causes of preterm death, instead attributing all neonatal deaths of infants born at less than 37 weeks to prematurity. Infections are responsible for a large proportion of these deaths but because of complexity and costs associated ...

Female Aneurysm Screening STudy

An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a swelling of the main blood vessel (aorta) in the abdomen. If the swelling gets too large the aorta can burst and this is usually fatal. In order to prevent rupture, AAA can be surgically repaired. This is usually carried out when the size of the AAA is more than 5.5cm in diameter as below this size, the risk of rupture is lower than the risk of surgery. AAA are usually asymptomatic before rupture but can easily and safely be diagnosed by ...

Preliminary Testing of a Novel Device to Detect Epileptic Seizures

Official statistics report around 1000 deaths due to epilepsy in the UK each year (Hanna et al 2002). Most of these deaths are un-witnessed and in many cases are believed to have been avoidable with timely assistance (Langan et al 2000). A major problem is detecting nocturnal seizures to allow body re-positioning, to maintain an open airway and to administer rescue medication. There are several seizure alarms commercially available but are often unreliable with many false alarm...
