This article was originally published in Start Up
There are approximately 140,000 fatalities a year from postpartum hemorrhage, mostly in low- to middle-income countries, and thus a pressing need to reduce mortality. A new low-pressure suction device from InPress Technologies Inc. that is inserted into the uterus following childbirth has the potential to initiate blood control within two minutes and reach full restoration of uterine tone in just over two hours.
