Abstract

No increase in maternal plasma oxytocin concentration was detected after administration of 100 IU oxytocin into the umbilical veins of seven women immediately after delivery. The delivery of the placenta was accelerated after umbilical vein injection of 100 IU oxytocin in a placebo-controlled study of 40 women: 12 minutes (4 to 40) in the oxytocin group versus 40 minutes (29 to 40) in the placebo group (median and interquartile ranges), p less than 0.05.
