Résumé

In 2008, a tertiary health care maternity set up a colour code organization for emergency caesarean to reduce the delay between decision and birth to thirty minutes. The aim of this study is to determine the feasibility of the implementation in secondary health care maternity. Materials and methods: This retrospective study was conducted in secondary health care maternity and it was divided in two phases: phase I corresponding to the period before the implementation of colour code and phase II, to the period after the implementation of colour code. All patients who had an emergency caesarean were included. Then, we compared the decision to birth delay between the two phases and the neonatal state. Results: Two hundred and twenty patients were included (one hundred and thirteen for the first phase and one hundred and seven for the second). The rate of caesarean sections realized within thirty minutes was no different between two groups. Decision to birth delay is variable and tends to decrease between two phases (-7 min for orange code, p = 0.91; and -15 min for red code, p = 0.0769). The medium pH is the same in both groups (7.30, p = 0.22) and the rate of transfer in neonatology is 29% for the first group and 13% in the second (p = 0.004) Conclusion: This protocol has resulted in better care for patients who had an emergency caesarean section. Two elements are to be noticed as follows: a reduction of decision to birth delay for extremely emergency caesarean (p = 0.0769) and less transfer in neonatology (p = 0.004).
