Rekha. J, Mahalakshmi Aravazhi

Abstract


Objective: To assess the maternal mortality rate at rural medical college hospital
Impact the demographic factors on MMR
Methods: A retrospective study of 72 maternal deaths over a period of 7 years from January 2011-December 2017.
Results: Over the study period there were a total of 43,639 deliveries giving a maternal mortality rate of 165 per lakh live births . The major causes
of maternal deaths were pre eclampsia of pregnancy and hemorrhage .Indirect causes of maternal death include anaemia ,hemorrhage,jaundice and
viral hemorrhagic fever. Most deaths –––-occurred in multiparous women and from rural areas. Most death occurred in age group of 20-30 years,
often in rural areas of about 76.38%, the referral cases constituting about 63.88%. Most death occurred postpartum within a period of 24 hours(
47.22). About 54.3% of death occurred following ceasarean section and 49% of patients were admitted in shock.
Conclusion: Although this Study depicts the rural institutional MMR is lower than the national MMR, still more maternal death can be avoided by
proper early screening of high risk and prompt referral.
