Non-pneumatic Anti-Shock Garment

SJA-UNICEF collaboration save lives

Under this collaboration, UNICEF donated five NASG to help ambulance officers provide a combination of basic life support care along with the lifesaving drug, oxytocin to mothers in maternal emergencies.

The NASG or Mama Kolos as it is commonly known in PNG, is a specially designed garment used to save women from bleeding to death as a result of birth complications.

UNICEF in PNG reported that out of 200 mothers who were assisted with a NASG all have been saved except for one, who had other underlying complications.
