PEACHES care bundle: reducing OASI Julie Frohlich Guys

PEACHES care bundle: reducing OASI Julie Frohlich Guys and St Thomas NHS FT OASI: HES data 2000-2012 1.8%-5.9% OASI Risk factors for nulliparous women: Maternal age >25 Asian women Birth weight >4kg Forceps without episiotomy: highest rate (22%) Ventouse without episiotomy x3 compared to with episiotomy Higher socio-economic status Shoulder dystocia (11%) Birth with ML episiotomy was associated with lowest

rate of OASIS Gurol-Urganci BJOG 2013 Other OASI risk considerations Additional risk factors for nulliparous women: Occipito posterior (OP) delivery (OR 3.35, 95% CI 1.756.41) Prolonged second stage (OR 1.98, 95% CI 1.46 2.68) Protective factors: Epidural analgesia (OR 0.72, 95% CI 0.540.96) Preterm birth (OR 0.40, 95% CI 0.230.72) Episiotomy (OR 0.54, 95% CI 0.390.74) protective in nulliparous women (Hauck et al 2015) And more to consider (Elvander et al 2015)

Nulliparous women OASI = 5.7% Multiparous women OASI = 1.3% VBAC OASI = 10.6% Lateral position had a slightly protective effect in nulliparous women Increased risk among women in the lithotomy position, irrespective of parity Squatting and birthing seats involved an increase in risk among parous women The GSTT OASI audit Our initial audit highlighted the following potential dangers: Instrumental delivery Birthing stool Pool births (not consistent with other data) Squatting and other upright positions Lithotomy position

Midwife SVB Midwifery Student SVB Practitioner Student midwife rates for OASI higher than RCOG guidelines and five fold midwife facilitated SVBs: they attended 10% of all SVBs but 26% of SVB OASI OASIS affects womens lives Anal incontinence

Urgency Pain and sexual problems Psychological and social Pelvic floor problems post menopause A significant proportion have elective CS for all subsequent births Can we prevent trauma? Cochrane reviews endorse: Perineal massage for nulliparous women Warm compresses during the birth Lateral position Can we prevent OASIS? Recent meta analysis: Currently, evidence from the meta-analysis of RCTs is insufficient to drive change in practice; however, NRS meta-analysis

results suggest that there might be a significant benefit in a hands on policy. (Bulchandani et al 2015) PEACHES P = Position E = Extra midwife (present at birth) A = Assess the perineum (throughout) C = Communication H = Hands-on technique

E = Episiotomy if required S = S-L-O-W-L-Y Progress so far All clinicians attending births at GSTT are expected to adopt PEACHES The PDMs, senior midwives and senior obstetricians are available to support and advise less experienced staff PEACHES training at all new staff induction and at mandatory training Monitoring OASIS on an ongoing (monthly) basis and regularly report progress to all staff PEACHES has been adopted by GSTT as a Sign up to Safety initiative PEACHES was awarded a Health Innovation network award in December 2015 to fund a PEACHES training video OASI risk assessment labels about to be introduced
