Postpartum haemorrhage is the leading cause of maternal mortality worldwide. However, postpartum haemorrhage-related deaths are potentially preventable with timely diagnosis and management. The present review addresses the management of postpartum haemorrhage algorithm that includes the use of uterotonics, non-surgical (balloon tamponade) or surgical (sutures, artery ligations, and/or hysterectomy) techniques, and/or endovascular radiologic interventions, antifibrinolytic (tranexamic acid), and procoagulant (fibrinogen concentrate) drugs based on the international and national guidelines updated with recent evidences.
