To provide more information about about postpartum hemorrhage, we have compiled several important resources:
1. Global Library of Women’s Medicine (GLOWM) is a site dedicated to ensuring that all physicians and other health professionals around the globe have access to up-to-date, fully referenced, peer reviewed research in women’s medicine.
2. A Textbook of Postpartum Hemorrhage: A Comprehensive Guide to Evaluation, Management, and Surgical Intervention comprises 53 chapters entirely dedicated to the subject of postpartum hemorrhage.
Written by some of the most accomplished women’s health experts, gynecologists, and obstetricians in the world, this book was first launched in 2006 at the XVII World Congress of the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) in Kuala Lummpur, Malaysia. It is now in its second edition, and our very own Fred Burbank is the author of Chapter 22 entitled, “Hemodynamic Changes in the Uterus and its Blood Vessels in Pregnancy.”
3. World Health Organization (WHO) Reproductive Health Library provides recommendations for, and current research on, the prevention, treatment, and management of postpartum hemorrhage.
4. Fibroids, Menstruation, Childbirth, and Evolution: The Fascinating Story of Uterine Blood Vessels is a comprehensive book that details the changes a woman’s body undergoes during pregnancy and childbirth, paying special attention to the uterus and its vasculature. This book provides the basis of knowledge needed to understand the causation of postpartum hemorrhage and, thus, how to effectively manage, prevent, and treat this complication of childbirth.
All revenue made by this book is donated to the Salt Creek International Women’s Health Foundation; however, Dr. Fred Burbank (the author) wished to create a space where the public could read it freely for academic purpose. Its home is here on the Salt Creek International Women’s Health Foundation website.
Here, you can also find a review of the book that was published in the American Journal of Roentgenology in 2010.
