Ending the Maternal Mortality Crisis: An Update on the Non-Pneumatic Anti-Shock Garment
The Non-Pneumatic Anti-Shock Garment (NASG) is a first aid compression garment that reverses hypovolemic shock and increases the likelihood of survival in women before, during, and after childbirth. Muso, in its mission to end the maternal mortality crisis, launched training three months ago for the use of this garment in Mali and Côte d'Ivoire, where maternal mortality rates remain high. We sat down with Dr. Mamadou Keita, Chief Gynecologist at the Referral Health Center (CSREF) of Bamako's Commune 6 to talk about the impact of this tool since its launch.
