Found (74) 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

Prevention of Preterm Birth in Singletons Using Pessary After Resolutive Threatened Preterm Labor

In France, threatened preterm labour concerns 6.5% of pregnancies and is associated with a premature birth in 25.4% of cases. After 48 hours effective tocolysis, patients do not receive any further treatment while their risk of premature birth has risen from 6.5% to 25%. A pessary is a silicone ring ...

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Ritodrine is the conventional and the only approved tocolytics in Korea(by KFDA), although it was withdrawn from the US market more than 10 years ago.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

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

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 ...

Phase N/A

Virtual Reality in Labor and Delivery for Reduction in Pain

The purpose of this study is to identify whether use of virtual reality devices can improve the pain management of women in labor and delivery. The investigators hypothesize that use of virtual reality devices will result in a reduction in pain medication use, in epidural use, and prolong the duration ...

Phase N/A

Electrical Inhibition of Human Preterm Contractions

The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of a new method of preventing the human preterm uterine contractions of labor during electrical monitoring. The objective is to test a method for the inhibition of human preterm uterine contractions with an electrical pacemaker, electrical inhibition (EI). The study ...

Phase N/A

Nifedipine for Acute Tocolysis of Preterm Labor

The purpose of this study is to determine if nifedipine treatment of women in preterm labor receiving corticosteroids results in postponement of delivery when compared to placebo.
