The issue of peri-operative mortality (POM) is key to gaining a better understanding of the overall capacity of a health care system. In a more resource-limited system, POM gives information about access to health care facilities, referral systems, and transportation as well as in-hospital factors such as infrastructure, anesthesia capacity, infection control, surgical workforce, and quality of care. In a more highly developed system, POM gives more information about the nature of surgical procedures done in the hospital and quality of care. At its essence, POM is a key indicator for surgical care within the context of UHC. Adding overall POM to mortality following Caesarian section in the DHS would be of great benefit to health care implementation and evaluation.
The suggested questions here warrant inclusion in the DHS.
