This study compared measures of blood loss obtained from two different measurement techniques frequently used in studies focusing on the prevention and treatment of post-partum hemorrhage (PPH). Significantly greater mean blood loss was recorded by the direct than by the indirect measurement technique, suggesting a meaningful difference in blood loss measurement between these two methods.
