BACKGROUND: Unintended pregnancies have a negative impact on the health and economy of a nation, which can be prevented by effective family planning (FP) services. Postpartum intrauterine device (PPIUCD) is a safe and effective FP method which allows women to obtain long-acting contraception before discharge from the point of delivery. We observed poor coverage of deliveries with PPIUCD at our facility. This was the trigger to initiate a quality improvement (QI) initiative to increase the PPIUCD coverage from current rate of 4.5%-10% in 3-month period. METHOD: A fishbone analysis of the problem was done and the following causes were identified: lack of focused counselling for FP, lack of sensitisation and training of resident doctors and inconsistent supply of intrauterine contraceptive devices (IUCDs). A QI team was constituted with representatives from faculty members, residents, interns, nursing officers and FP counsellors. The point of care quality improvement methodology was used. INTERVENTIONS: Daily counselling of antenatal women was started by the counsellors and interns in antenatal wards. A WhatsApp group of residents was made initially to sensitise them; and later for parking of problems and trouble shooting. The residents were provided hands-on training at skills lab. Uninterrupted supply of IUCDs was ensured by provision of buffer stock of IUCDs with respective store keepers. RESULT: The PPIUCD insertion rates improved from 4.5% to 19.2% at 3 months and have been sustained to a current 30%-35% after 1 ½ years of initiation of the project tiding through the turbulence during the COVID-19 pandemic using QI techniques. CONCLUSION: Sensitisation and training of residents as well as creation of awareness among antenatal women through targeted counselling helped improve PPIUCD coverage at the facility. QI initiatives have the potential to facilitate effective implementation of the FP programmes by strategic utilisation of the resources.

Background: Congenital high airway obstruction syndrome (CHAOS) is a near fatal condition, except when the ex utero intrapartum treatment (EXIT) procedure is performed as rescue. After antenatal diagnosis of the condition, counseling regarding prognosis and outcome needs to be provided.Case: We describe here a case with CHAOS due to isolated fetal laryngeal atresia, presented at our center at 33-week gestation. After counseling regarding the uncertain outcome, consent for elective caesarean was not given. Intact cord resuscitation (ICR) was done as a rescue by a well-coordinated team during delivery. Tracheostomy was performed successfully under local anesthesia within five minutes, while the cord was still attached to the placenta. The baby had supraglottic stenosis on CT scan. Reconstructive surgery is planned after 8 months. The literature review showed 24 reports of 28 cases with intrinsic airway obstruction managed by EXIT, laryngeal atresia was the most common cause (18/28). The outcome was poor in tracheal agenesis (1/4 survived) whereas those having laryngeal web or small communication (4/4 survived) had better outcome. Tracheal reconstruction was done in 3/28 cases only.Conclusions: The case emphasizes that ICR and tracheostomy during vaginal delivery can rescue the baby. The literature reviewed provided insight into the outcome of CHAOS cases in world literature.
