Acute myocardial infarction Severe maternal morbidity can be thought of as unintended outcomes of the process of labor and delivery that result in significant short-term or long-term consequences to a woman's health. To date, there is not complete consensus among systems and professional organizations as to what conditions should represent severe maternal morbidity AIM: To determine the prevalence of severe acute maternal morbidity (SAMM) worldwide (near miss). METHOD: Systematic review of all available data. The methodology followed a pre-defined protocol, an extensive search strategy of 10 electronic databases as well as other sources. Articles were evaluate
Severe morbidity and related maternal deaths were standardised per 1000 deliveries. Case definitions exist for each SAMM condition, and all the hospitals have trained data entry clerks. Training and supervision were offered on a continuing basis, and data were verified at headquarters level Severe Maternal Morbidity: Short-term Risks SMM is stressful and affects the woman, her family and friends, and the overall community. For example, women who experience SMM may be at increased risk of post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms during the 6-8 weeks after delivery.22 Single-state studies suggest tha .2 Previous cesarean birth 17.9 Anemia, preexisting 11.8 Gestational diabetes mellitus 9.5 Preterm birth (< 37 weeks) 8.0 Preeclampsia without severe features or gestational hypertension 5.8 Gastrointestinal disease 5.3 Major mental health disorder 4.9 Asthma, acute or moderate/severe 4.8 BMI ≥ 40 kg/m2 4. Severe maternal morbidity (SMM) is variously defined but generally refers to health-impacting and life-threatening events that occur during hospitalization for childbirth. It may precede or be associated with maternal mortality and is more common: there are approximately 70 cases of SMM for each maternal death in the United States [ 1 ]
Maternal morbidity can be conceptualized as a spectrum ranging, at its most severe, from a maternal near miss - defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as the near death of a woman who has survived a complication occurring during pregnancy or childbirth or within 42 days of the termination of pregnancy 5 - to non-life. Severe acute maternal morbidity (SAMM), also known as near miss, is defined as A very ill pregnant or recently delivered woman who would have died had it not been that luck and good care was on her side [1, 2].This concept is relatively new in maternal care, but is increasingly becoming important in areas with low maternal mortality ratios or where the geographic area is small [3, 4]
Severe Acute Maternal Morbidity and Postpartum Hemorrhage Criteria for identification of near-miss Case definition Study Related to specific disease Starting point is a specific disease and morbidity is defined for each. For example, pre-eclampsia might be the disease with severe morbidity identified by it severe maternal morbidity, along with developing and carrying out interventions to improve the quality of maternal care are essential to reducing severe maternal morbidity. Data Limitations Depending on the data source, estimates of the national maternal mortality rate may change. This can be due to differences in definitions used and/or data. Diagnosis and Procedure Codes used to define indicators of severe maternal morbidity Severe Maternal Morbidity Indicator Diagnosis or Procedure ICD-9 codes Acute myocardial infarction Diagnosis 410.xx Acute renal failure Diagnosis 584.x, 669.3x Adult respiratory distress syndrome Diagnosis 518.5, 518.81, 518.82, 518.84, 799. The case group comprised 2,500 women with severe acute maternal morbidity (defined by a national expert consensus process) occurring from 22 weeks of gestation and up to 42 days postpartum. A random sample of 3,650 women who gave birth without severe acute maternal morbidity made up the control group Severe maternal morbidity included conditions such as cerebrovascular accidents, acute renal failure, severe preeclampsia, and other life-threatening complications. The outcome was in-hospital mortality after the last pregnancy, categorized as postpartum (42 days or fewer after delivery) and long-term (43 days to 29 years after delivery)
A recently published nationwide prospective cohort study identified that severe acute maternal morbidity (SAMM) complicates at least 7.1/1,000 pregnancies in the Netherlands 11 The most common indicators of severe maternal morbidity were blood transfusion, disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), and hysterectomy (in 2015, 121.1, 11.0, and 11.0 deliveries per 10,000, respectively.) Some conditions often involved procedural intervention
Definitions of SAMM vary, 5 but maternal admission to an intensive-care unit (ICU) is a sensitive and specific indicator of severe maternal morbidity, 6 represents approximately one third of SAMM events, 7, 8 and is a readily identifiable endpoint for audit Most studies on severe acute maternal morbidity describe the causes and characteristics of cases of severe acute morbidity in hospitals, without an immediate link to identifying deficiencies in obstetric care. However, there is some experience with using cases of severe acute maternal morbidity to assess and improve the quality of obstetric care On the other hand, the WHO proposal for surveillance of maternal near-miss (ie severe acute maternal morbidity) recommends the prospective follow-up of severe maternal complications (ie potentially life-threatening conditions) with a view to accurately and comprehensively identifying cases of organ system failure. 28, 29 Some studies attempting. Objective To test the application of a clinical definition of severe acute maternal morbidity. Design A one-year prospective descriptive multi-centre study. Setting Kalafong and Pretoria Academic hospitals, catering for the delivery of indigent women in the Pretoria Health Region. Methods A 'near-miss' describes a patient with an acute organ system dysfunction, which if not treated. Gestational anaemia was significantly more frequent in women with severe acute maternal morbidity (25.3%) than in controls (16.3%), p < 0.001, and mostly mild in both groups
Severe acute maternal morbidity indicators The severe acute maternal morbidity (SAMM) indicators were developed to support the local capture and review of SAMM events and to allow hospitals to monitor and implement safety and quality improvement strategies relating to severe maternal incidents Maternal mortality continues to be of great public health importance, however for each woman who dies as the direct or indirect result of pregnancy, many more women experience life-threatening complications. The global burden of severe maternal morbidity (SMM) is not known, but the World Bank estimates that it is increasing over time Severe Acute Maternal Morbidity (Near Miss) in a Tertiary Care Center in Maharashtra: A Prospective Study Alka Patankar1, Prashant Uikey2, Neha Rawlani3 1Associate Professor, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Indira Gandhi Government Medical College, Nagpur, Maharashtra, India With declining maternal mortality, the study of severe acute maternal morbidity (SAMM) provides an opportunity to measure the quality of maternal care and to identify ways to improve it. The objective was to study the epidemiology of severe acute maternal morbidity in a high income, rapidly developing, multiethnic country in the Middle East, and to determine the role of ethnicity in maternal.
RESULTS: The population-based incidence of severe acute maternal morbidity was 6.2% (n=197/3,202, 95% CI 5.3-7.1) in twin pregnancies, and 1.3% (n=2,303/179,107, 95% CI 1.2-1.3) in singleton pregnancies. After controlling for confounders, the risk of severe acute maternal morbidity was higher in twin than in singleton pregnancies (adjusted. Severe maternal morbidity (SMM) is a constellation of pregnancy factors that negatively impact a woman's health. While each of these conditions is rare, SMM occurs 100 times more frequently than maternal death2. Research continues to highlight that nearly one-half of maternal mortality and morbidity is preventable3 and readiness and.

The WHO defines maternal morbidity as any health condition attributed to and/or aggravated by pregnancy and childbirth that has a negative impact on the woman's wellbeing. A Dutch study looked at severe acute maternal morbidity (such as admission to intensive care unit, uterine rupture, blood transfusion, etc) and found that women who delivered their first baby at home had the same risk with women delivering at a hospital, but parous women had increased risk of postpartum hemorrhage and blood transfusion.
Severe maternal morbidity is defined as including unexpected outcomes of labor and delivery that result in significant short- or long-term consequences to a woman's health. 1 Often called near-misses, deliveries involving severe maternal morbidity generally include life-threatening conditions, such as acute myocardial infarction, pulmonary. 1 Severe Maternal Morbidity (SMM) refers to conditions and diagnoses that indicate potentially life-threatening maternal complication, including unexpected outcomes of labor and delivery resulting in significant short- or long -term consequences to a woman's health. 2 SMM relates to higher risks of adverse pregnancy outcomes like preterm birth and infant death . To evaluate the effect of audit at district level in Thyolo, Malawi, we assessed the incidence of facility-based severe maternal complications (severe acute maternal morbidity (SAMM) and maternal mortality) during two years of audit and feedback Severe acute maternal morbidity is defined as 'a very ill or pregnant or recently delivered woman who would have died had it not been luck or good care was on her side'. 3. Maternal near-miss events provide an opportunity to explore how our healt Introduction Preventing and reducing violence against women (VAW) and maternal mortality are Sustainable Development Goals. Worldwide, the maternal mortality ratio has fallen about 44% in the last 25 years, and for one maternal death there are many women affected by severe acute maternal morbidity (SAMM) requiring management in the intensive care unit (ICU)

INTRODUCTION Each year nearly 5, 29,000 women die globally due to pregnancy related causes. For each death, nearly 118 women suffer from life threatening events of near miss mortality or Severe Acute Maternal Morbidity The tragedy of maternal deaths has generated several discussions in low-income countries, and any woman who is pregnant is at risk of developing complication. Severe acute maternal morbidity or obstetrics near miss is an event, in which a pregnant woman comes close to maternal death but does not die—a near miss Among these 1834 matched mothers, women with cesarean deliveries had a 1.8 greater odds of severe acute maternal morbidity than those who had vaginal births (adjusted odds ratio [aOR], 1.8). The.
Background Although pregnancy-related laparotomy is a major intervention, literature is limited to small case-control or single center studies. We aimed to identify national incidence rates for postpartum laparotomy related to severe acute maternal morbidity (SAMM) in a high-income country and test the hypothesis that risk of postpartum laparotomy differs by mode of birth. Methods In a. The severe maternal outcome ratio (SMOR) and MNM ratio were outcome indicators of maternal morbidity events occurring in the population. Accordingly, during the study period there were 994 deliveries, 993 live births, 94 NM cases, ten maternal deaths, and 165 NM events, giving a mean of 1.7 severe life-threatening morbidities per case Severe maternal morbidity was associated with 6.73 times the mortality risk, compared with no morbidity, during the period from 43 days to 11 months, but this difference dropped to 1.91, 1.77, and 1.18 times the risk, compared with no comorbidity, at 1-4 years, 5-9 years, and 10-29 years, respectively Main Outcomes and Measures Severe maternal morbidity and maternal death during pregnancy and within 6 weeks after termination of pregnancy. Results During the study period, there were 3 162 303 new pregnancies (mean [SD] maternal age, 29.5 [5.6] years) and 3 533 259 related hospital admissions BACKGROUND: Severe acute maternal morbidity (SAMM) accounts for any life-threatening complication during pregnancy or after delivery.
