The use of intraoperative blood salvage during postpartum hemorrhage is increasing. Reinfusion of the patient’s own blood is now recommended by many national organizations as a tool during management of obstetric hemorrhage. This study analyzes 8 years of use in obstetric patients who lost enough blood during obstetric hemorrhage to receive a reinfusion.
