STILWELL, Kan., May 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- By keeping a close watch on America's Maternal Mortality Crisis, Creche Innovations answered the call to this growing problem, by helping thousands of hospitals improve their response and care to Obstetrical Hemorrhage. Over the past year, Creche Innovations has been providing free education programs, and implementing

the Rapid Response Unit, commonly referred to as the RRU®, a patented all-in-one rapid response medical system.

Postpartum Hemorrhage (PPH) remains the most common cause of maternal mortality and morbidity.  "Our team was shocked with the alarming number of new mothers that were losing their lives, or left disabled after giving birth," said Scott Norman, CEO of Creche Innovations. Despite the efforts of medical personnel to reduce the incidence of PPH, the United States is the most dangerous place in the developed world to give birth today. The CDC reports "3 in 5 pregnancy-related deaths could be prevented." 54-93% is the range of maternal hemorrhage related deaths that could have been prevented, with improved clinician response.

In collaboration with nurses and physicians, Creche Innovations responded to this tragic problem by developing the RRU®.  This is the third proprietary medical product developed by the team at Creche Innovations, and is being quickly accepted by hospitals, as the new Standard of Care for treating PPH. The first RRU® rolled off of the assembly line a year ago, and the system has already proven to help hundreds of  hospitals meet the four (4) Key Elements that are required when addressing a PPH emergency: Recognition, Readiness, Response, Reporting, and affording clinicians the opportunity of reaching optimal patient outcomes and saving lives.

Recognizing the signs of hemorrhage at the earliest possible moment requires ongoing assessment, and tools to support the medical staff with proper diagnosis and care. Quantitative measurement of blood loss is vital, and assurance of continued assessment in the postpartum period, are essential factors for the best patient outcome. The RRU® serves as the only all-in-one PPH treatment system. It's easy to use, streamlines the workflow process, and allows the clinicians to keep all hands-on deck, which is critical when seconds count!  Instead of leaving the patients unattended to gather medications and supplies, the RRU® stands by at bedside, fully equipped and ready to immediately assist clinicians.

The RRU® is made in the USA, fully customized for each hospital, and configured to meet their precise needs. The RRU® facilitates rapid access to medication, surgical instruments and supplies. All systems come standard with a built-in MicroCool® refrigerator. This feature not only ensures immediate access to the needed medications, hospitals now save thousands of dollars by preserving unused Methergine and Hemabate. The built-in QBL-Scale™ now eliminates the estimation of blood loss by providing a precise and accurate measurement. Hospitals can add additional accessories to complement their exact needs, such as the OR™ Bright, a built-in LED examination task light, mobile ultrasound, and more.

Creche Innovations also provides ongoing hospital support with continuing education classes: "Improving the Quality and Standard of Care when Responding to Postpartum Hemorrhage" and "Eliminating Estimation of Blood Loss in Obstetrical Hemorrhage Patients." These accredited programs are made available to clinicians who qualify.
