Abstract

Over a six-month period, five women with severe uterine atony and postpartum hemorrhage developed marked maternal arterial oxygen desaturation within five to ten minutes of the administration of 15-methyl prostaglandin F(2α). The average fall from baseline was 10.4 ± 5.4%, to a mean arterial oxygen saturation of 88.8 ± 5.45%. The desaturation was accompanied by acute increases, averaging 20.7 ± 5.9%, in the intrapulmonary shunt.
