INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:
Intended for women suffering from uncontrollable postpartum haemorrhage (PPH), to control the bleeding, reverse the shock, and stabilize the patient for safe transport to a comprehensive obstetric care facility.
The NASG applies pressure to the lower body and abdomen, thereby stabilizing vital signs and resolving hypovolemic shock.
When fitted correctly, the NASG reverses the shock by returning blood to the essential organs - heart, lungs, and brain.
1. Place the NASG under the woman;
2. Close the segments 1 tightly around the ankles;
3. Close the segments 2 tightly around each calf;
4. Close the segments 3 tightly around each thigh, leave knees free;
5. Close the segment 4 around pelvis with lower edge at level of pubic bone;
6. Close the segment 5 with pressure ball over the umbilicus and finally, close the NASG with segment 6;
The segments 1, 2, 3 can be applied by two persons simultaneously, but segments 4, 5 and 6 should only be applied by one.
Make sure the woman can breathe normally after close the NASG.
It is extremely important not to remove the NASG before a woman receives IV fluids, blood and before all vital signs are restored. Early removal can be dangerous and even fatal.
For cleaning: Mix a 0,01% bleach solution, immerse the NASG in that solution and soak for 10min. Scrub to remove tissue and particles. Wash and rinse with clean and cool water. Squeeze and hang in the sun to dry it.
