You’re looking at an interactive case study from Prognosis: Your Diagnosis (one of four distinct learning formats available in Clinical Odyssey). Try it out, and have fun improving your clinical skills.
A 31 year old primipara at full term delivered a healthy baby vaginally, following an uncomplicated labor. The placenta was delivered completely, following which prophylactic oxytocin was administered. An episiotomy was not performed.
When reassessed 30 minutes after delivery, she was found to be bleeding heavily.
Her pregnancy had been uneventful, and her medical and surgical histories were unremarkable.
