Maternal Mortality in Rajavithi Hospital 1984-1998 : Analysis of the Causes of Death
Kovavisarach E Mail, Sathiraleela B

From January tst, 1985 to December 31st, 1998 there were 49 maternal deaths. The com-
pleted data of 45 cases were reviewed to evaluate the causes of death including direct, indirect and
non maternal death. The mean maternal mortality ratio was 19.18 per 100,000 live births. The leading
causes of death were hemorrhage, infection, pregnancy induced hypertension and amnionic fluid
embolism. The maternal mortality ratio can be reduced because the most common cause of death
was hemorrhage which is preventable.
