Abstract

Studies in animals and humans indicate that uterine performance can be successfully monitored during pregnancy using uterine electromyography. Uterine electromyography could be used to better define management in a variety of conditions associated with human labor. The potential benefits of the proposed instrumentation and method include: reducing the rate of preterm delivery, improving maternal and perinatal outcome, monitoring treatment, decreasing cesarean-section rate, and providing research methods to better understand uterine function.
