Effects of Different Oxytocin Infusions on Blood Loss and Postpartum Hemoglobin Values in Patients Undergoing Elective Cesarean Delivery
Although prior dose-finding studies have investigated the optimal bolus dose of oxytocin to initiate adequate uterine tone, it is unclear what oxytocin infusion regimen is required to maintain adequate uterine tone after delivery. The study investigators aim to compare two different infusion rates of oxytocin to assess the optimal infusion regimen for reducing blood loss in women undergoing elective Cesarean delivery.
Stanford is now accepting new patients for this trial.
