Obstetric hemorrhage accounts for 5% all deliveries in the United States and accounts for high maternal morbidity and mortality. Many hemorrhages are secondary to uterine atony and are quickly ameliorated with appropriate uterotonic use. However, for a subset of cases, severe hemorrhage may require advanced resuscitative techniques, and innovative procedural and surgical techniques. This article guides a provider through such a resuscitation.
