Guardian Balloon for Postpartum Hemorrhage Poster and Guidebook

This expert-advised do-it-yourself instructional booklet guides a health provider through how to make a kit from available materials to deploy an intrauterine balloon tamponade for bleeding during, before or after childbirth. The instructions have the following:

  • Clear pictorial instructions in French and English
  • A complete guide to the condom balloon tamponade
  • An expert-guided solution for stockouts of the balloon tamponade

THE PROBLEM

Postpartum hemorrhage is a leading killer of mothers before, during and after childbirth. A balloon-like, sterile medical device inserted through the cervix and into the uterus can apply pressure against the walls of the uterus and in many cases can be effective in stopping the hemorrhage. While a range of factory-made intrauterine balloons have become the gold standard, the need for improvised, do-it-yourself techniques remains in settings without a predictable supply chain. Using a condom and a foley catheter, trained professionals can create a uterine balloon tamponade, but having a poster and guidebook are key.

THE SOLUTION

The condom balloon tamponade (CBT) is used to stop intractable postpartum hemorrhage. The Guardian balloon is a do-it-yourself balloon tamponade made from a strong condom hooked to an IV tube and IV bag. The IV bag feeds into the tubing which is then attached, by the provider, to a condom, tied to the tubing with a sterile suture. The method is used as a last resort in settings where other types of balloon tamponade are not available.

In order to aid health professionals in using the CBT method, this poster and guidebook was put together by the world's top experts on the CBT method, in cooperation with Maternova Research, our non-profit.  Beautifully drawn illustrations explain the process in French and English.
