This paper will concentrate on the prediction, prevention, and treatment of preterm labour, and discuss the ways in which antenatal interventions can optimise. The purpose of this document is to present the various methods proposed to manage preterm labor and to review the evidence for the roles of these methods in. The management of preterm labour. Preterm labour is the onset of regular uterine contractions associated with progressive cervical change between viability and 37 completed weeks of gestation. The incidence is between 5% and 10% in most developed nations.Identification of and · Treatment · Conclusion.

An ultrasound might also be done to check for problems with the baby or placenta, confirm the baby's position, assess the volume of amniotic fluid, and estimate the baby's weight.
Your health care provider might use a uterine monitor to measure the duration and spacing of your contractions. Your health care provider might take a swab of your vaginal secretions to management of preterm labor for the presence of certain infections and fetal fibronectin — a substance that acts like a glue between the fetal sac and the lining of the uterus and is discharged during labor.
These results will be reviewed in combination with other risk factors.
You'll also provide a urine management of preterm labor, which will be tested for the presence of certain bacteria. Treatment Medications Once you're in labor, there are no medications or surgical procedures to stop labor. However, your doctor might recommend the following medications: If you're between weeks 24 and 34, your health care provider might recommend an injection of potent steroids to speed your baby's lung maturity.
