1. What is oxytocin?
Oxytocin, synthesized by our hypothalamus, is a hormone that can be secreted by both men and women. For women, it can trigger uterine contractions during childbirth, stimulate milk secretion, and establish mother child relationship. Oxytocin (CAS: 50-56-6) is a kind of white powder that can be used as a medication to facilitate childbirth.

2. Functions of oxytocin?
Oxytocin is also called oxytocin clinically. When doctors choose to use oxytocin, they mostly want to stimulate uterine contraction, speed up labor and shorten the labor process. If used in postpartum, it is generally used to prevent and treat postpartum hemorrhage caused by poor recovery of uterine contraction. In addition, it can also be used to stimulate milk secretion, relieve pressure, and coordinate the relationship between baby and mother.
3. Precautions of oxytocin
It is worth noting that if oxytocin is not used properly, oxytocin may face strong or uncoordinated contractions, which may lead to fetal intrauterine hypoxia and even labor pause, which is very risky for both the baby and the mother. If the pregnant mother with abnormal fetal position or pelvic stenosis uses oxytocin, the uterine contraction may be too strong, but the baby can not be delivered normally, it will lead to uterine rupture, fetal distress, and may also have delayed labor, that is, labor process is too long.
If you misjudge the indication of medication or the dosage is not appropriate, it may lead to too fast delivery, that is, urgent delivery. If the doctor does not have time to disinfect and cause wound infection, or the birth canal laceration and neonatal fall, it will cause great harm. "
In order to avoid these situations, pregnant mothers must go to regular hospitals and use them under the close supervision of doctors. If there are abnormal conditions, cesarean section is needed to finish delivery in time.
Before oxytocin is used, doctors will carry out a series of tests on mother and baby, including placental maturity, fetal size, amniotic fluid, maternal cervical conditions, and so on.
Generally speaking, there are several situations that oxytoxin needs to be used:
Before delivery, pregnant women with less amniotic fluid, poor fetal movement, or those who have not been born after the expected delivery period, that is, overdue pregnancy, are used to urge delivery; during delivery, pregnant women with normal fetal position but weak contractions and long labor process are used to shorten the labor process;
After delivery, for the mother with poor uterine contraction, it is used to stimulate uterine contraction and reduce bleeding. "
But not all overdue pregnancies can use oxytocin. Pregnant mothers should first ensure that the conditions are appropriate.
4. What is not suitable for oxytocin?
Cephalopelvic disproportion, such as abnormal fetal position, umbilical cord presentation, pelvic abnormalities, or scarred uterus, serious placental problems, fetal distress, excessive amniotic fluid should not be used, or severe pregnancy induced hypertension, cervical cancer, etc. If there is a more serious intrauterine infection or in fact there is a false labor, it is not suitable to use oxytocin. Generally speaking, it is most reliable to listen to the doctor's arrangement.
Some pregnant mothers are worried about the effect of oxytocin on the fetus. In fact, as long as the correct use, it will not cause harm to the fetus. When using it, special personnel should be assigned to monitor the condition of the mother, so that you can rest assured in the regular hospital.
