In table 3 of this Research paper by Catherine Deneux-Tharaux and colleagues (BMJ 2013;346:f1541, doi:10.1136/bmj.f1541) the quantitative variables were shown as standard errors [not standard deviations, as stated]. For controlled cord traction and standard placenta expulsion, the correct values are, respectively: 175 and 164 for mean blood loss at 15 minutes (mL), 230 and 267 for mean total blood loss (mL), 12.9 and 12.7 for mean peripartum change in haemoglobin (g/L), 3.9 and 3.8 for mean peripartum change in haematocrit (%), and 4.6 and 6.9 for mean duration of third stage (min).
