Found (76) clinical trials

The CRB study is designed to study the safety and effectiveness of the Cook Cervical Ripening Balloon (CRB) for the induction of labor in term and near-term patients with premature rupture of membranes (PROM).

Phase N/A

Role of Intrapartum Ultrasound in Instrumental Delivery

Investigators will perform a multicentric randomized controlled trial comparing the effect of transabdominal and transperineal ultrasound in pregnant women in the second stage of labor, in whom it was decided an operative delivery. Our objective is to evaluate the impact of intrapartal ultrasound measurements, as an auxiliary to clinical evaluation, ...

Phase N/A

Efficacy and Safety of MgSO4 as Tocolytics Compared to Ritodrine in Preterm Labor

Ritodrine is the conventional and the only approved tocolytics in Korea(by KFDA), although it was withdrawn from the US market more than 10 years ago. As already known well, ritodrine has many side effects such as tachycardia, hyperglycemia, pulmonary edema and so on. When such complications of ritodrine appears, clinicians ...

Phase N/A

Ropivacaine Continuous Wound Infusion Versus Intrathecal Morphine for Postoperative Analgesia After Cesarean Delivery

Cesarean delivery is one of the most common surgical procedures, performed at an increasingly high rate. It is associated with intense postoperative pain that may hamper the rehabilitation process and interfere with patient satisfaction and care provided to the newborn. Therefore, control of perioperative pain with multimodal regimens using local ...


Activity Restriction for Women With Arrested Preterm Labor

Preterm birth (PTB) is a major cause of perinatal morbidity and mortality. Worldwide, about 15 million babies are born too soon every year, causing 1.1 million deaths, as well as shortand long-term disability in countless survivors. Preterm labor (PTL) is the final pathway for about 50% of all PTB. Tocolytic ...

Phase N/A

Extra Hospital Delivery Outside Medical Presence.

This study aims to evaluate a standardized procedure of medical regulation based on a validated predictive score of eminent delivery (SPIA) in comparison with usual inhomogeneous practices. It will therefore focus on the issues of medical regulation at SAMU - Center 15. The goal of the regulator is to provide ...

Phase N/A

Investigating the Effect of Acupressure on Shivering During a Cesarean Delivery in Women Who Were Previously Laboring With an Epidural

The purpose of this study is to determine whether applying pressure to the left and right P6 acupoints can treat shivering in a patient undergoing a cesarean section. The hypothesis is that bilateral stimulation of P6 with pressure can stop or alleviate shivering. The primary endpoint is resolution of shivering ...

Phase N/A

Magnesium for Neonatal Neuroprotection and Mothers

Purpose Neonatal neuroprotection is a new indication for magnesium. Meta-analysis of the available literature suggests beneficial neonatal outcomes, but the direct effects on maternal health have not been studied. Unwanted effects of magnesium therapy such as sedation and respiratory insufficiency may be potentiated by neuraxial anesthesia placing the mother at ...

Phase N/A

Pocket Warming of Epidural Medication

Studies have shown that warmed epidural medication resulted in a mean analgesic onset of 9.2 minutes as compared to a mean onset of 16 minutes for the same medication at room temperature. Onset time for pain medication during labor is important to a great many participants, thus techniques to shorten ...


Use of Nitrous Oxide Donor for Labor Induction in Women With PreEclampsia

The investigators are proposing a double blinded, placebo controlled, randomized clinical trial of patients undergoing induction of labor for preeclampsia. Once the decision to induce will be taken, the participants will be randomized to receive either intravaginal IMN (40mg) or identical appearing placebo placed every 4hrs in the posterior vaginal ...
