Overall, 4% of deliveries during the antenatal period and 0.1% of deliveries during the intrapartum
period were not screened for GBS (P less than .001).
Cesarean deliveries fall into different categories based on the presence of medical indications (i.e., indicated cesarean, nonindicated cesarean), the timing of these indications with regard to labor (i.e., antepartum indications such as breech fetal presentation versus intrapartum
indications such as fetal intolerance of labor), and the presence or absence of labor.
It also offers tools to implement the recommendations, known as the WHO intrapartum
This level was used as pH of <7.20 on fetal blood sampling is defined as abnormal in current intrapartum
guidelines of the UK and is used to prompt immediate delivery 
In this context, studies that explore women's satisfaction with intrapartum
care are timely and relevant.
We set out to test our hypothesis that universal rapid HIV screening would be cost-effective in high incidence and prevalence areas of the United States, secondary to identification of previously undiagnosed maternal HIV and resulting in timely intrapartum
and postpartum interventions to prevent MTCT and improve neonatal outcomes.
Antepartum and intrapartum
fetal testing and fetal monitoring help to detect fetal distress.
GenePOC Inc reported on Thursday the availability of its second Intrapartum
Group B Streptococcus Direct Swab (DS) molecular test, the GenePOC GBS DS, for use on the revogene instrument in Europe.
antibiotic prophylaxis for GBS-colonized women during labor reduces transmission and the risk of early onset neonatal disease (1,2)
In an attempt to stratify the risk, a variety of screening tests are performed during prenatal and intrapartum
periods to identify high risk population.
Objective: The purpose of the research was to assess the content and quality of the intrapartum
care offered in vaginal births in Turkey, based on the example of a state hospital.
Secondary maternal outcomes included antepartum or intrapartum
fever, mode of delivery, duration of hospital stay, and development of chorioamnionitis in the expectant management group.
