Third Stage of Labour

A Randomized Comparison of Rectal Misoprostol with Syntometrine on Blood loss in the Third Stage of Labour

Rectal misoprostol in appropriately selected patients results in comparable blood loss at delivery as compared to standard therapy and may be a reasonable alternative for the active management of the third stage of labour in patients delivered outside of a hospital setting.


Objectives: a) To compare the clinical effect of rectal misoprostol with intramuscular syntometrine in reducing blood loss in the third stage of labour, b) to determine the severity and incidence of side effects of both drugs and c) to measure blood loss, patient tolerance and acceptance of rectal misoprostol.
