PMID:  7197448     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Authors compare data of 1577 elective inductions with 1450 those of spontaneous labor or cases induced post term because of signs of foetal distress during regular assessment. They review the methods of selection and management of planned induction as well as their results. They are as follows: the mean duration of the 1st stage of labor was 4 hours 35 minutes, FHR changes of hypoxic origin in the 1st stage occurred in 6 per cent, scalp blood examinations showed more favourable values than the ones found in uncomplicated, spontaneous labors; the total frequency of operative interventions were 1,84 per cent, we had no perinatal deaths which could be attributed to our policy of selective planned induction of labor.
