Induction and Augmentation of Labor

++
++
++

Compared with the induction of labor, the augmentation of labor differs in what regard?

++
++
++

a. The fetal membranes are intact.

++
++

b. Oxytocin is titrated to effect.

++
++

c. Contractions are pharmacologically stimulated.

++
++

d. Previously commenced labor fails to effect cervical change.

++
++ ++
++
++

All EXCEPT which of the following are contraindications to labor induction?

++
++
++

a. Twin gestation

++
++

b. Breech presentation

++
++

c. Fetal-growth restriction

++
++

d. Prior vertical hysterotomy cesarean delivery

++
++ ++
++
++

The risk for cesarean delivery is increased in women undergoing induction of labor in which of the following situations?

++
++
++

a. Low Bishop score

++
++

b. Engaged fetal head

++
++

c. Multiparous parturient

++
++

d. All of the above

++
++ ++
++
++

Women whose labors are managed with amniotomy are at increased risk for which complication?

++
++
++

a. Uterine atony

++
++

b. Chorioamnionitis

++
++

c. Cervical lacerations

++
++

d. All of the above

++
++ ++
++
++

A 30-year-old G2P1 at 37 weeks’ gestation with one prior cesarean delivery presents with contractions and premature rupture of the fetal membranes. Her cervix is 3 cm dilated. She requests a trial of labor and is deemed an appropriate candidate. An oxytocin infusion is initiated, and 2 hours later, you are called to the room to evaluate the fetal heart rate tracing, which is shown below. According to a large study conducted by the Maternal-Fetal Medicine Units Network, the use of oxytocin increases the risk for uterine rupture by what magnitude in women with a prior cesarean delivery?

++
++
++
++

a. Threefold

++
++

b. Sixfold

++
++

c. Tenfold

++
++

d. No change from background risk in women undergoing trial of labor after cesarean
