Postpartum Hemorrhage is consistently one of the top three causes of maternal mortality and is often the leading cause of maternal death; even in developed countries. Studies suggest that 73-93% of bleeding deaths are preventable. Early and proper intervention is key. A rapid-response system is critical. ebb provides a complete tamponade solution to the emergency of postpartum hemorrhage
The only dual-balloon catheter
The malleable balloon material allows the vaginal balloon to conform to the patient’s anatomy better than silicone. The uterine balloon has a fill capacity of 750 mL, and literature suggests that >500 mL may be required to achieve tamponade in 45% of cases. The vaginal balloon anchors the uterine balloon, reducing balloon expulsion while potentially treating vaginal bleeding if present.
With ebb you can monitor continued blood loss through the drain to better understand how much blood the patient has lost. Once drainage stops, check patency by flushing liquid through the irrigation port to check for concealed bleeding within the uterus.
“Bleeding decreased or stopped in 50/51 of the cases after balloon placement. Nearly one-half of all women required uterine balloon volumes of >500 mL to control bleeding.”
