Maternova's Resource on the Partograph

Maternova's Resource on the Partograph

Maternova's Resource Center for the WHO Modified Partograph

PARTOGRAPH CENTRAL 2015-16

This page is our effort to offer the partograph in as many languages as possible. Of all the inquiries we get, the partograph or partogram is the most popular. The partograph is approved by the World Health Organization and exists in a modified and a simplified version. We do not take a position on promoting its use but offfer it to those who find it helpful.

THE PARTOGRAPH

The partograph is a protocol or tool used to track the progress of labor. The WHO modified version of partograph is a simple single page monitoring tool for the first stage of labor by tracking multiple aspects of labor over time including fetal heart rate, cervical dilation, contractions, drugs and medicine given, pulse, blood pressure and urine tests. The tool allows the trained birth attendant to monitor the progress of labor, the mother and the fetus, hour by hour and to have a clear means of tracking whether labor is obstructed--with 'alert' and 'action' lines signaling when a labor has become complicated. The tool was modified by the WHO and reintroduced in a simpler form.

WHO Modified Partograph

As pointed out by many, though the tool is simple in that it is a piece of paper, the concepts and number of indicators tracked are complex, and   using the partograph takes some training. In the first study outside of Africa on actual fidelity of use, only 6% of health workers were using the tool ( http://bmjopen.bmj.com/content/5/4/e006211.full)

VERSIONS

There are many versions of the partograph. The WHO modified partograph was further changed to the simplified partograh which removes the latent phase of labor. In some trials the simplified version was found to be easier to use.

TRANSLATIONS

Maternova has worked with translators and maternal health professionals to translate the WHO modified partograph into a number of languages. The PDFs below include the WHO modified partograph and a detailed explanation in English and the language indicated.

WHO Modified Partograph- Spanish

 

DISCLAIMER

The partograph or partogram was designed for use by trained midwives, nurses and obstetricians. Though the World Health Organization approved the WHO Modified Partograph, these translations were done by Maternova and external consultants and are not approved by the WHO.

We strongly recommend that you first test the partograph using non-patient test case scenarios before using with actual patients.

EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES

We will also curate a library of evidence based literature about the partograph, and a library of educational materials.

An e-learning tool is presented on the incredible GLOWM site:

Another mobile phone based training tool is here with some of our favorite folks, HealthPhone:

Engenderhealth has done a great deal of work on increasing the training and use of the partograph:

New preeclampsia risk-factor checklists to aid health care providers in identifying pregnant women who may benefit from prophylactic low-dose aspirin
New preeclampsia risk-factor checklists to aid health care providers in identifying pregnant women who may benefit from prophylactic low-dose aspirin

agosto 14, 2020

This past June, the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine (SMFM) published in the   American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology   a special statement on a collection of two new checklists they created to support health care providers in identifying pregnant women at heightened risk of developing preeclampsia, a major cause of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality.

Are multiple micronutrient supplements superior to the traditional iron-folic acid supplements taken during pregnancy?

agosto 04, 2020

It is common in low- and middle-income countries for women to experience micronutrient deficiencies as a result of poor diet. This becomes a particularly acute issue in pregnancy due to an increase in the nutrient requirements of both mother and fetus. Deficiencies in micronutrients like vitamin A, iron, iodine, and folate can negatively impact the health of both the mother and fetus.

Studies suggest a potential direct and dose-response relationship between anemia and postpartum hemorrhage
Studies suggest a potential direct and dose-response relationship between anemia and postpartum hemorrhage

Anemia is a concern in pregnancy and is usually addressed with iron supplementation. Its linkage to postpartum hemorrhage has been of concern because those who are anemic are likely to expire more rapidly once blood loss occurs.
