Global Maternal Health Conference 2013

To combat obstetric hemorrhage, the Non-Pneumatic Anti-Shock Garment (NASG) is a low-technology, stabilizing device. Ayadi studied the use of NASGs at the tertiary care levels and found that they are effective for reducing mortality, especially with severe bleeding. LaBarre described the challenges of NASGs: quantification, sustainable demand, and effective and efficient distribution. LaBarre suggested a systematic uptake model to be used within Sub-Saharan Africa to increase use and distribution of NASGs. Demeke described a successful pilot program in Ethiopia using NASGs and described the scale-up of the program for future use.
