DripAssist for Safer Labor and Delivery in Haiti
Ensuring effective IV treatment for pre-eclampsia, eclampsia, and post-partum hemorrhage.
Affordable, effective medication management can be a challenge in many healthcare environments where nurses have high patient loads. When those medications are given intravenously, there can be even more challenges. These days, IV delivery of medication generally happens either with a pump, or with a nurse counting drops and estimating dosage ranges. Drop counting by hand is time-consuming and can be inaccurate, and it places a burden on the healthcare system when it comes to life-saving treatments like preeclampsia or preventing post-partum hemorrhage.
