This manual focuses on postpartum hemorrhage and high-risk pregnancy. Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) affects approximately 2% of all women who give birth and is associated with nearly one quarter of all maternal deaths globally. The reported incidence of PPH in India is 2%–4% after vaginal delivery and 6% after cesarean section with uterine atony being the most common cause (50%). This manual consists of 14 chapters, which include present scenario of PPH, traumatic PPH, medical management of PPH, massive transfusion protocol, nonpneumatic antishock garment, uterine tamponade, management of postpartum hemorrhage, heart disease in pregnancy, jaundice in pregnancy, management of monochorionic twins, unexplained fetal death, preterm premature rupture of membranes, screening and management of gestational diabetes, and neonatal resuscitation. Many such topics are included in the workshop and stalwarts in the field will enlighten us about the subjects. This book gives knowledge to caring for the suffering diseased women in a better way.
