Obstetric hemorrhage can bring significant challenges to the obstetrician and anesthestiologist. Optimal management requires a systems-based multidisciplinary and intraprofessinal approach, and implementation leadership is now the cornerstone of successful hemorrhage management. The National Partnership for Maternal Safety recently released a patient safety bundle for maternal hemorrhage. The bundle lists 13 resources that should be implemented in every delivery unit in the country to optimize readiness, recognition, response, and reporting and systems learning for obstetric hemorrhage. Anesthesiologists are expert in resuscitation and systems-based response, and can help lead both bundle implementation and clinical teams responding to obstetric hemorrhage.
