Topic: Development Of A Risk Prediction Model For Postpartum Haemorrhage In Lagos, Nigeria Predict-PPH Study

Description: PPH is an obstetric emergency complicating 1% 17% of all deliveries worldwide and is the leading cause of maternal morbidity and mortality in sub-Saharan Africa. Accurately identifying women at risk of PPH in the attempt to promote stricter vigilance during pregnancy and childbirth is one of the strategies proposed to reduce morbidity and mortality. The predict-PPH is a prospective cohort study conducted in maternity units of the three tertiary hospitals in Lagos aimed to develop a prediction model for PPH based on certain antenatal risk factors in a diverse population of women in Lagos, Nigeria. Two thousand eight hundred seventy-six consecutively consenting healthy pregnant women aged 15 49 years will be enrolled at 32 36 weeks gestation and followed up until delivery. A Data Entry form created on the REDCap database will be used to collect information on maternal clinical and obstetric risk factors at enrolment and postpartum blood loss estimated using calibrated blood collection drapes after 24 hours of childbirth. The study outcomes PPH will be defined as postpartum blood loss of more than 500mls within 24 hours of delivery, while severe PPH sPPH is defined as blood loss of more than 1000 mL Data analyses will be carried out using R-Statistical software and bivariate analyses of variables linked to PPH will be performed using the binary logistic regression model.

Preterm delivery is the second most leading cause of under-five deaths in the world and has been associated with poor neonatal outcomes especially in developing countries where management of severe and extreme preterm new-born is a challenge.Objective: To compare the risk factors associated with preterm and term deliveries.Method: A retrospective comparative study of one hundred and fifty patients with preterm delivery between 28-36 weeks gestation and one hundred and fifty control subjects with term delivery. Information was obtained on socio-demographic, obstetric and medical risk factors in both groups. Data obtained was analyzed using SPSS version 19.Results: The significant risk factors for preterm delivery were multiple twin pregnancy P = 0.000 , preterm premature rupture of membranes P = 0.000 , bleeding in pregnancy P = 0.0 , pathologic vaginal discharge in pregnancy P = 0.000 , previous preterm delivery P =0.01 , significant fever in pregnancy P = 0.05 , malaria P = 0.01 , and hypertensive disorders in pregnancy Pre-eclampsia P = 0.000 , Eclampsia P = 0.01 .Conclusion: In concordance with previous studies, multiple gestation, previous preterm birth, hypertensive disorder, febrile illness, bleeding and pathologic vaginal discharge in pregnancy were identified risk factors for preterm delivery. Findings will help identify antenatal patients with risk factors which will be modified to prevent adverse perinatal outcome.
