A gynecological emergency that can occur within 24 hours after birth
Develops mostly due to lack of sufficient contraction of the uterus (uterine atony)
About a quarter of maternal deaths globally, and around 11 percent in the US, stem from postpartum hemorrhage,
marking it as the primary reason behind maternal mortality.
While several factors could lead to unusual postpartum bleeding, uterine atony stands out as the most common, responsible for 80 percent of postpartum hemorrhages and affecting approximately one in 40 births in the United States.
Alma, a cutting-edge device engineered to swiftly and securely address this critical concern.
The Alma System utilizes vacuum-based technology specifically tailored to manage abnormal postpartum uterine bleeding and postpartum hemorrhage, providing a swift and efficient treatment option.
ResQ Medical is presenting ALMA, an innovative solution for treating life-threatening Postpartum Hemorrhage (PPH)
in a physiological manner.
Our approach with ALMA is to support the natural contraction of the uterus which in turn leads to the cessation of the bleeding as occurring naturally in any normal birth, and which doesn’t occur in the case of PPH.
This innovative approach contrasts with the medical devices used today, which are based on inserting and inflating a balloon inside the uterine cavity- causing the uterus to expend against the natural mechanism of the body.
