National standards for quantification of blood loss (QBL)


The Joint Commission - Sentinel Event Alert¹

A leading cause of maternal morbidity and mortality is failure to recognize excessive blood loss during childbirth.


AWHONN Practice Brief²

AWHONN recommends that cumulative blood loss be formally measured or quantified after every birth.

We must quantify, not estimate blood loss at delivery.


CMQCC Hemorrhage Bundle⁴

Ongoing evaluation of quantitative cumulative blood loss drives the hemorrhage protocol.



A comprehensive solution for obstetrics departments


Triton OR: objective insights

Triton OR is an FDA cleared system that enables real time monitoring of surgical blood loss, integrated into the workflow of the operating room. Triton accurately estimates blood content independent of non-sanguineous fluids on sponges and suction canisters by applying a proprietary algorithm to images captured by an iPad.


Triton L&D simplified solutions

Triton L&D streamlines QBL in vaginal deliveries and postpartum recovery settings by integrating an iPad-based app with a Bluetooth scale to create a simple user experience. Triton L&D, coupled with Triton OR, provides a comprehensive solution for hospital obstetrics departments.


Triton featured as part of AWHONN’s Trusted Leaders program
