In a significant innovation, a team of doctors in Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College here has developed a device christened the Chhattisgarh Balloon, which promises to bring down maternal mortality drastically, particularly in third world countries, by effectively controlling postpartum uterine bleeding in just delivered mothers.
The Chhattisgarh Balloon, a result of year-long research by a team of four doctors led by professor of gynaecology and obstetrician Nalini Mishra at the JNMC, is tipped to usher in remarkable improvement in the prevailing gloomy maternal mortality scenario in developing countries where postpartum haemorrhage contributes to as high as 33 per cent of the total maternal mortality, by saving lives of new mothers.
