Device monitors mother's blood loss during childbirth

Every year 50,000 U.S. women are severely injured, 700 die during child birth. Maternal child birth deaths increased sharply between 1990 and 2015.  In most other developed nations, the numbers stayed flat or dropped.

Winnie Palmer Hospital is the first in Central Florida to use a new Artificial Intelligence powered device to fight against preventable maternal deaths. The hospital says doctors traditionally monitored for blood loss using their own subjective estimates. The Triton monitor now does it in real time using digital imaging and machine learning on an iPad.
