Asset Caption
Physiologic changes in blood volume and hemostasis that accompany pregnancy mitigate the risk of maternal hemorrhage; however, these adaptive mechanisms can be overcome in superimposed pathophysiologic states. Uterotonic and hemostatic adjuncts constitute the first line of defense in combatting postpartum hemorrhage. Familiarity with the indications, contraindications, and pharmacokinetics of these agents is critical for the continued successful management of hemorrhage in the ICU. Early recognition and management are therefore critical because failure to treat potential contributors to hemorrhage can lead to adverse outcomes.
