Use of nipple stimulation to obtain contraction stress test.


A total of 1312 nonstress tests were performed in the 14-month period between May 1, 1981, and June 30, 1982. There were 323 tests in 194 patients that were nonreactive and subsequently required a contraction stress test using nipple stimulation. The authors found that the results obtained using nipple stimulation were as predictable as contraction stress tests using oxytocin infusion.
