Postpartum Hemorrhage (PPH) is preventable with an accurate assessment of blood loss from the use of quantification of blood loss. A standardized method to quantify blood loss provided in this review will allow providers to implement this at their institution. Quantification of Blood Loss (QBL) will allow for timely diagnosis of PPH and improve response time to administer medications, blood products and manage the cause of hemorrhage. Using maternal early warning signs and correlating this with the stages of hemorrhagic shock will prompt more timely activation of Massive Transfusion Protocol (MTP).
