Management of prolonged/arrested labor: Part 1

Depending on the nature and cause of the prolonged labor, the doctor conducts various procedures such as: 

Inducing of labor by Pitocin/Oxytocin: It involves injecting synthetic hormones that aid in accelerating the labor process by strengthening the uterine contractions. It is a method to promote birth naturally rather than surgical intervention. However, the right dosage of the hormones should be made sure as excess might lead to tachysystole thereby affecting the baby’s condition.
