The Kelly's Pad is a simple medical device to funnel blood to a collection device in order to help detect postpartum hemorrhage. This device first came to our attention in the Pathfinder video on managing postpartum hemorrhage. The device is widely used in India, though not elsewhere. In the video one sees the Kelly pad funnel blood into a calibrated collection bowl which has a hemorrhage alert line at 500 mL. The pad is washable and sterilizable, making it far more cost-effective than a plastic collection drape.
