Non-Pneumatic Anti-Shock Garment - Boon at child birth

May '09
A new invention, the Non-Pneumatic Anti-Shock Garment (NASG), is expected to reduce, drastically, the number of deaths of women, caused due to hemorrhage during child births in Nigeria.

This was disclosed by the Minister of State for Health, Dr Aliyu Hong who said that 80 percent of women who died, while giving birth, did so due to blood hemorrhage and that this garment will go a long way in reducing those numbers.

The Life-Wrap continuously and safely applies lower body counter pressure to stabilize women suffering from obstetric hemorrhage, effect resuscitation and arrest further bleeding.

The government is collaborating with organizations like the Mac Arthur Foundation, which intends to spend about $11 million which will involve the effective implementation of the programme.
