RESUMO

In working to improve the health of North Carolinians, a critical focus starts with our mothers and infants and their surrounding communities. North Carolina's perinatal outcomes, as evidenced by maternal morbidity and mortality, infant mortality, preterm births, and the larger context of lifelong physical and mental health of our citizens, offer areas for improvement and policy implications. In addition, the unacceptable disparities that remain despite some overall improvement in outcomes warrant full attention. This issue of the NCMJ highlights the state of perinatal health in North Carolina; the importance of a risk-appropriate perinatal system of care; the opportunities for supporting our parents, children, and families; and how we as a state and as a community can come together to improve the safety and experience of giving birth in North Carolina and beyond.

RESUMO

Lebanon invested in the prevention of maternal mortality after the civil war, which left a deficient vital registration system leading to unreliable estimates of maternal mortality ratio (MMR). Starting in 2004, the Ministry of Public Health integrated reproductive health into primary health care and established a national notification system of maternal and neonatal deaths. From 1990 to 2013, Lebanon achieved an annual change in MMR of -7.5%, which was the highest rate of reduction in the region and met the requirements of Millennium Development Goal 5. For the period 2010-2018, data collected through the national notification system indicate an MMR of 14.9, which is below the officially reported MMR of 23. Since the influx of Syrian refugees, Lebanon has experienced a rise in the number of live births with a slightly increasing trend in MMR, especially in regions with the highest concentration of refugees. Causes of maternal mortality in Lebanon align with the three-delays model, pointing to deficiencies in the quality of maternity care. More efforts are needed toward strengthening the national notification system to include cases that occur outside hospitals, identifying near-miss cases, reinforcing the emergency response system, and engaging with all stakeholders to improve quality of care.

RESUMO

Background: Postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) is the leading cause of maternal mortality worldwide, but it mainly affects women from low- and middle-income countries. Despite being a treatable condition, the high number of maternal deaths resulting from PPH is outstanding for at least 25 years. Late diagnosis and difficulties in identifying women who will develop severe postpartum bleeding can, in part, explain the high incidence of PPH. Over the past few years, researchers have focused on identifying a simple, accessible and low-cost diagnostic tool that could be applied to avoid maternal deaths. In particular, it has been suggested that vital signs and shock index (SI) could be useful. The objective of this study was to evaluate whether vital signs are correlated with the percentage of body blood volume (BBVp) lost after vaginal delivery. Methods: A prospective cohort study was performed at the Women's Hospital of UNICAMP, Brazil. The inclusion criteria were women delivering vaginally who did not suffer from hypertension, hyper- or hypothyroidism, cardiac disease, infections or coagulopathy. Blood loss was measured over 24 hours using a calibrated drape and by weighing compresses, gauzes and pads. Vital signs were measured up to 24 hours after delivery. We evaluated the BBVp lost, and generated a Receiver operating characteristics (ROC) curve with area under the curve (AUC) analysis to determine the cut-off values for vital signs to determine the likelihood of postpartum bleeding above the 90th percentile within 24 hours of delivery. Results: A total of 270 women were included. The mean blood loss within 24 hours of vaginal delivery was 570.66 ± 360.04 mL. In the first 40 minutes, 73% of the total blood loss over the 24-hour period had occurred, and within 2 hours, 91% of women had bled 90% of the total blood loss. Changes in SI and heart rate (HR) were statistically significant in predicting postpartum bleeding (P ≤ 0.05). Higher values for likelihood ratio (LR) to identify BBVp loss above the 90th percentile within 2 hours were a SI above 1.04 at 41-60 minutes after birth (LR = +11.84) and a HR above 105.2 bpm at 21-40 minutes after birth (LR = +4.96). Both measures showed high specificity but low sensitivity. Conclusion: Values of SI and HR are statistically significant in predicting postpartum bleeding with high specificity but low sensitivity. The cut-off points were 1.04 for SI and 105 bpm for HR.

RESUMO

Objective: To analyze risk factors, cardiovascular complications, time of death, gestational age of delivery and offspring outcomes in the maternal deaths with cardiovascular diseases (CVD). Methods: Totally 4 112 cases of pregnant women with CVD in Shanghai obstetric heart disease intensive care unit within 26 years (from January 1993 to December 2018) were collected, and 20 maternal deaths within these cases were analyzed retrospectively. Results: (1) Among the 20 deaths, structural heart diseases accounted for 90% (18/20), pregnancy induced heart diseases was 10% (2/20) while there was no dysfunctional heart disease. The mortality of pregnant women with CVD was 0.486% (20/4 112). (2) The following risk factors were common in these women, getting pregnant without counselling (95%, 19/20) , New York Heart Association classⅢ or Ⅳcardiac function (70%, 14/20), complicated with pulmonary hypertension (75%, 15/20) and prior heart events (60%, 12/20). And 85% (17/20) deaths occurred in puerperium, 15% (3/20) occurred before labor,while no death occurred during labor. And 65% (13/20) deaths died due to heart failure, 20% (4/20) deaths were due to pulmonary hypertension crisis, 5% (1/20) died on sudden cardiac arrest, rupture of aortic dissection and sudden death, respectively. Conclusions: Women with CVD should get pregnant after strict evaluation. Pulmonary hypertension is one of the most severe contraindications to pregnancy, especially in patients with moderate to severe pulmonary hypertension. The puerperium period is a critical period that threatens the safety of these patients. Since heart failure is the most common cause of death, it is necessary to prevent and treat heart failure and to monitor heart function dynamically, especially in those with structural abnormal heart diseases. Moreover, it is also of importance to standardize antenatal care and to identify the severity of heart diseases in time.

RESUMO

Os indicadores de morbidade e de mortalidade materno-infantis são essenciais no contexto da organização da Rede Cegonha, no âmbito do Sistema Único de Saúde (SUS). Esta rede organiza-se para assegurar o acesso, o acolhimento e a resolutividade, por meio de um modelo de atenção voltado para o pré-natal, parto e nascimento, puerpério e sistema logístico. Este artigo apresenta um estudo ecológico desta rede em uma Regional de Saúde, realizado com uso de dados dos Sistemas de Informação de Saúde do Departamento de Informática do SUS. Verificou-se um percentual crescente de gestantes que realizaram sete ou mais consultas pré-natais. No entanto, poucas concluíram a assistência pré-natal, porque não realizaram a consulta de puerpério. Observou-se uma taxa de mortalidade infantil próxima à da meta estipulada pela ONU. Identificou-se um aumento das cesáreas e uma redução de partos normais, além de uma alta mortalidade materna. Esses indicadores apontam para a necessidade de melhoria da qualidade da atenção pré-natal e da assistência ao parto.


Indicators of maternal-child morbidity and mortality are essential in the context of the organization of the Rede Cegonha (Stork Network), within the scope of the Unified Health System (SUS ­ Sistema Único de Saúde). This network is organized to ensure access, protection and successful resolution, through a model of attention focused on prenatal, delivery and childbirth, puerperium (or postpartum period) and logistic system. This article presents an ecological study of this network in a Regional de Saúde (Regional Health Department) that was carried out using data from the SUS Department of Informatics of the Health Information Systems. An increasing percentage of pregnant women who had seven or more prenatal visitscould be observed. However, few pregnant women completed prenatal care because they have not sought for the puerperium consultation. A child mortality rate close to the target set out in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals was observed. An increase in caesarean sections and a reduction in normal deliveries and at the same time a high maternal mortality were identified. These indicators point to the need to improve the quality of prenatal and delivery care.


Los indicadores de morbilidad y de mortalidad materno-infantil son esenciales en el contexto de la organización de la Rede Cegonha (Red Cigüeña), en el ámbito del Sistema Único de Salud (SUS ­ Sistema Único de Saúde). Esa red se organiza para asegurar el acceso, el acogimiento y la capacidad resolutiva, por medio de un modelo de atención dirigido al prenatal, parto, nacimiento, puerperio y sistema logístico. Este artículo presenta un estudio ecológico de la red en una Regional de Saúde (Dirección Regional de Salud) realizado utilizando datos de los Sistemas de Información de Salud del Departamento de Informática del SUS. Se ha verificado un porcentaje creciente de gestantes que realizaron siete o más consultas de prenatal. Sin embargo, pocas gestantes concluyeron la asistencia prenatal, porque no realizaron la consulta de puerperio. Se observó una tasa de mortalidad infantil próxima a la meta estipulada por la ONU. Se identificó un aumento de las cesáreas y una reducción de partos normales, además de una alta mortalidad materna. Esos indicadores apuntan la necesidad de mejorar la calidad de la atención prenatal y de la asistencia al parto.

RESUMO

En Paraguay no se han realizado aun estudios de morbilidad materna severa. En el año 2016, la tendencia de la Razón de Mortalidad Materna en Paraguay mostró un descenso a partir del año 2009 hasta el 2012, con una ligera elevación en el año 2013 que obedeció probablemente a un mayor registro de muerte materna. El mayor número de muertes se presentó en los Departamentos de Alto Paraná y Central. Las causas más frecuentes son las hemorragias, la hipertensión inducida por el embarazo y las complicaciones del aborto. El 80 % de estas muertes se producen por fallas relacionadas a la demora en identificar el estado grave y las intervenciones oportunas que se deben realizar para evitar la muerte materna. A nivel nacional ya se han tomado diferentes iniciativas de carácter político e institucional para potenciar el esfuerzo en la aceleración de la disminución de la mortalidad materna como la implementación del código rojo, la conformación de comités de salud y morbimortalidad materna en las 18 regiones sanitarias y la notificación obligatoria de muertes maternas(AU)

RESUMO

Ao contrário do que ocorre em todas as partes do mundo, inclusive no restante do Brasil, na região de Ribeirão Preto, interior de SP, a mortalidade materna atinge mais as mulheres brancas, com oito anos ou mais de estudo, profissionais empregadas e, a maioria, em primeira gestação. Esse foi o perfil destacado por um estudo da Escola de Enfermagem de Ribeirão Preto (EERP) da USP sobre a epidemiologia da mortalidade materna na região de Ribeirão Preto

RESUMO

The Saving Mothers Project was conducted from September 2015 to March 2017 in Bunda and Tarime Districts, Mara Region, Tanzania. The purpose of this project was to train community health workers (CHWs) to use mobile phones applications to register and educate pregnant women about safe deliveries and encourage them to access skilled health care providers for antenatal care and delivery, and to provide nurses and CHWs with clean birth kits with misoprostol to distribute to women. The birth kits were for use in case women could not access the health facility, or if the health facility was lacking supplies at the time of delivery. The overall goal of the study was to reduce the maternal mortality rate by increasing women's access to health services where possible, and to clean supplies when a non-facility birth was unavoidable. This paper reports on a mixed methods evaluation of the project including a survey of over two thousand four hundred women, and focus groups with women, community health workers, and nurses participating in the project. The results of the survey and focus groups demonstrate a high degree of satisfaction with the birth kits and misoprostol and an increase in facility birth rates where the project was implemented. Differences between the two districts illustrate that policy maker support is key to successful implementation.

RESUMO

Pulmonary hypertension in pregnant women is associated with high mortality and morbidity despite significant improvement in prognosis. Women with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) should be still advised against pregnancy and advised on effective contraceptive methods. Pregnancy may be manageable in women with well controlled PAH or mild pulmonary hypertension (sPAP<50mmHg). When women with PAH choose to continue their pregnancy, they need: management by a multidisciplinary team in an expert centre; continuation or early introduction of targeted PAH therapy; early planned delivery.

RESUMO

Maternal bacterial sepsis during pregnancy and the postpartum period is a common cause of maternal mortality and fetal morbidity and mortality. This study was performed to analyze perinatal prognosis and related factors of maternal bacterial sepsis in west China.We conducted a cross-sectional study of pregnant women with bacterial sepsis who were admitted into a tertiary care center in western China between 2011and 2015. Data from these cases were collected and analyzed.Eighty six women were identified with bacterial sepsis in our hospital, and the incidence of maternal bacterial sepsis was 1.7 per 1000 maternities, the incidence of septic shock was 1.8 per 10,000 maternities, and 1 maternal death occurred. Among the 86 pregnant women with bacterial sepsis, genital tract infection was the most common source of infection (41/86, 47.7%). The most common bacteria in the Gram-positive bacteria group was Listeria monocytogenes and in the Gram-negative bacteria group was Escherichia coli. The premature delivery rate (65.7%) was substantially higher in the Gram-negative bacteria group (P = .011), and the miscarriage rate (31.3%) was higher in the Gram-positive bacteria group (P = .042). The fetal/neonatal mortality rate was 20% (21/105) and higher in the Gram-positive bacteria group (P = .008), and the infant mortality rate in 1 year was 7.1% (6/84).Bacterial sepsis remains an alarming cause of both maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality, and infant mortality. Key treatment involves a multi-disciplinary group of clinicians with experience in all aspects of the care of pregnant women with sepsis and early initiation of appropriate antibiotics according to the type of bacterial infection. The effect of maternal sepsis on long-term fetal outcome should be investigated.

RESUMO

Despite the fact that about 94% of pregnant women attend ANC, 95% deliver at health facilities and 99% deliveries are assisted by skilled birth attendants in Botswana, the national Maternal Mortality Rate is still high. Objectives: To determine the trend of MMR at Princess Marina and Nyangabwe referral hospitals before and after EMOC training. Methods: Retrospective longitudinal quantitative study design was used to collect data on maternal deaths. Demographic characteristics, maternal death causes, gestation at ANC registration and pregnancy risks were collected for the period before EMOC training and after training, analysed and compared. Descriptive statistics and frequency tables were used. Findings: Maternal deaths were 33 and 41 before and after EMOC training respectively. Majority of the maternal deaths, 78.8% and 70.7% before and after EMOC training respectively occurred among young women in the reproductive ages. Eclampsia was the commonest cause of maternal death before EMOC between training & and 58% and 66% of maternal deaths before and after EMOC training respectively occurred among women who had attended ANC services four or more times. Conclusion: Maternal deaths at the hospitals remained similar during the two periods. Qualitative studies are needed to determine why EMOC training has not resulted in significant reduction in MMR in Botswana.

RESUMO

Background: Maternal, fetal and neonatal mortality are 10 to 100 fold higher in many low-income compared to high-income countries. Reasons for these discrepancies include limited antenatal care and delivery outside health facilities. Objectives: The study aimed at conducting a baseline survey to assess the current levels of maternal health indicators in six counties in Western Kenya. Methods: This was a cross sectional study conducted targeting women residing in Uasin-Gishu, ElgeyoMarakwet, TransNzoia, Bungoma, Busia and Kakamega counties who had given birth five years prior to the interview. Socio-demographic and maternal indicators were collected using forms adopted from KDHS 2009. Interviews were conducted in the homesteads between December 2015 and June 2016. Results: A total of 6257 women participated in the study, median age 27 years IQR 23-32. Majority of the women had post-primary level of education, were married and 40% were members of an income-generating activity. 56.8% were using modern family planning method, 49% attended WHO recommended four plus antenatal clinic visits and only 20% attended in the first trimester. Majority, 85% had their most recent delivery in a health facility. Conclusion: Findings suggest that women are not attending recommended four plus antenatal clinic visits and even those that attend are few are during the first trimester.

RESUMO

MM-ARG, the Swedish maternal maternity mortality group within SFOG (Swedish Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology) has, since 2008, surveyed and analysed maternal deaths in Sweden with the aim to find and give feedback on lessons learned to the medical professions.  MM-ARG consists of obstetricians, midwives and anesthetists and the strength of the working model is that the profession itself takes responsibility for the scrutiny.  A summary of 67 known maternal deaths from 2007‒2017 is presented. Direct causes of death are dominated by hypertensive disease/preeclampsia, followed by thromboembolic disease, sepsis and obstetric bleeding. Indirect death, where a known or unknown underlying disease is exacerbated by pregnancy, is dominated by cardiovascular disease. This review shows that the diagnostics and clinical management could be improved. Besides obstetrics/gynecology, maternal mortality affects other specialties and thus holds important lessons to many.
