MACHADO QUIALA, Yaneida et al. Maternal Morbidity due to massive blood loss in "Tamara Bunke Bider" Gynecological and Obstetrical Hospital. MEDISAN [online]. 2013, vol.17, n.5, pp.792-801. ISSN 1029-3019.

A descriptive, retrospective and cross-sectional investigation, aimed at characterizing the extremely severe maternal morbidity due to massive blood loss, with hypovolemic shock or without it, was carried out in "Tamara Bunke Bider" Teaching Gynecological and Obstetrical Hospital from Santiago de Cuba during the biennium 2010-2011. Of the 68 patients with the clinical pattern, 35 corresponded to the first year of the study and they represented 1.4% of the morbidity, while the 28 affected women of the second year constituted 0.78%. In the series, data were collected from morbidity records of the hospital and they were gathered in an application form to register the variables of interest. As an outstanding result there was a general decrease of females with a clinical course of extremely severe maternal morbidity.

Keywords : maternal morbidity; massive blood loss; hypovolemic shock; maternal hospitals.
