This animated video depicts the method of insertion and deployment of the vacuum-induced uterine tamponade device for the treatment of postpartum hemorrhage secondary to an atonic, distended uterus. The device is inserted into the uterus and the occlusion balloon is insufflated with saline to create a seal at the level of the external cervical opening. After securing the device to the patient's inner thigh, vacuum is applied, collapsing the uterus as the blood is evacuated. The device is removed after one hour.
