The Guardian Condom Balloon Tamponade (CBT)

A condom tamponade catheter that provides direct pressure to control postpartum hemorrhage (PPH). This non-pharmacological, non-surgical method to control PPH is an important part of all childbirth emergency preparedness.

  • Two condoms to form the basis of a do-it-yourself uterine balloon
  • Foley catheter used to insert and fill the balloon
  • Pictorial instructions

THE PROBLEM

Postpartum hemorrhage is a leading cause of death for women both in the United States and around the world. In 2017, PPH was responsible for more than 38,000 maternal deaths around the world, the majority of which came from low- and middle-income countries. Uterine atony, which is when the uterus fails to contract after delivery, is the most common cause of PPH, responsible for approximately 70% of all PPH cases. When the uterus fails to contract, blood vessels in the uterus that were attached to the placenta are not compressed, leading to free bleeding that can become dangerous. If uterine massage and uterotonic medications prove ineffective in stopping bleeding in the case of uterine atony, applying pressure to the uterine wall can help stop bleeding.

THE SOLUTION

The condom balloon tamponade is a method of stopping postpartum hemorrhage when drugs and other interventions have failed - the component supplies allow the clinician to create an intrauterine balloon. The Maternova Guardian kit includes instructions, non-latex gloves and two Glyde condoms to create the balloon. Sutures tie the balloon to a foley catheter which in turn is connected to an IV bag. Together these components create an intrauterine balloon to stop postpartum hemorrhage.
