Synopsis: 
Blood loss requiring the need for transfusion is a major potential in spine surgery. There is a need to decrease the risk of transfusion to transition to outpatient surgery. This study demonstrated that no patients required transfusion using several tips and techniques.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Spine surgery is transitioning using minimally invasive and less exposure surgery (LES) techniques. Blood loss requiring transfusions remains a distinct complication. The authors aim to demonstrate the use of tips and techniques in decreasing the risk of transfusion in the outpatient setting.

A Randomized Comparison of Rectal Misoprostol with Syntometrine on Blood loss in the Third Stage of Labour

Issue: 
Pages: 
201–6
Synopsis: 
Rectal misoprostol in appropriately selected patients results in comparable blood loss at delivery as compared to standard therapy and may be a reasonable alternative for the active management of the third stage of labour in patients delivered outside of a hospital setting.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: a) To compare the clinical effect of rectal misoprostol with intramuscular syntometrine in reducing blood loss in the third stage of labour, b) to determine the severity and incidence of side effects of both drugs and c) to measure blood loss, patient tolerance and acceptance of rectal misoprostol.
