Low complete recovery rate in this study could be due to the late referral,unbooked status, poverty, poor general health, and mismanagement at local maternity units same could be the reason of high mortality rate in this study 56(28.57%) with associated obstetrical emergency conditions like postpartum haemorrhage, ante partum haemorrhage, puerperal sepsis
, eclampsia, ruptured uterus, these were the women who were anaemic,late referral, and in morbid condition, same is reported by other studies.16-20
Amongst those who delivered at the AKUH, 1(0.75%) maternal death due to puerperal sepsis
and 9(7%) of neonatal deaths were recorded.
Semmelweis and the aetiology of puerperal sepsis
160 years on: and historical review.
Participants were identified as having confirmed puerperal sepsis
by continuous surveillance for postnatal admissions for sepsis, or as having 'possible mild wound infection' (our own term), based on information obtained from follow-up telephone calls made to participants at 14 days postpartum.
An Address on Puerperal Sepsis
: Delivered before the Oldham Medical Society.
Objectives: To describe the presentation, management, and outcome in patients admitted with puerperal sepsis
pyogenes was isolated from a nonsterile site in combination with probable streptococcal toxic shock syndrome (STSS) or another severe manifestation (pneumonia, necrotizing fasciitis, puerperal sepsis
, meningitis, or septic arthritis).
The foundation module focuses on 'The midwife in the community' while the others each specifically relate to one of the known frequent causes of maternal mortality worldwide: postpartum haemorrhage, obstructed labour, puerperal sepsis
, eclampsia and managing incomplete abortion.
An inquest was opened and heard the cause of death was severe abdominal infection puerperal sepsis
which can affect women after childbirth.
She is particularly interested in reducing the high incidence of puerperal sepsis
, an infection following childbirth.
In the first line of their abstract, the authors observe, "Historically, intrauterine clostridial infections have been associated with puerperal sepsis
, often subsequent to instrumented abortion." 1
Rarely, infection results in invasive disease, with clinical manifestations that include NF, pneumonia, meningitis, puerperal sepsis
, and streptococcal toxic shock syndrome (STSS).
