Intraoperative Management of anesthesia uses RSI's general anesthesia technique to control hemodynamics and uses anesthesia drugs that do not worsen the patient's condition. At the time of surgery, we did the transfusion because there was a significant amount of bleeding during the procedure and was categorized as Class IV bleeding.

Anesthesia care of patients with postpartum hemorrhage extends from the antenatal period to the postpartum period. Optimal postpartum hemorrhage management occurs when nurses, obstetricians and anesthesiologists recognize early the potential for excessive bleeding and trigger a 'major obstetric hemorrhage protocol' that describes specific tasks for each team player and the algorithm that must be followed according to etiology, circumstances and time during labor.
