  • decrease
  • However, in a Canadian study of 1858 women at 25-32 weeks' gestation who remained undelivered after a single course of antenatal corticosteroids, multiple courses did not improve outcomes and were associated with decrease in weight, length, and head circumference at birth. (medscape.com)
  • This study shows that bed rest did not decrease uterine activity and therefore did not change outcomes. (sabirthclasses.com)
  • neonatal
  • However, there were no significant differences in the rates of low birth weight or fetal or neonatal death. (blogspot.com)
  • surfactant
  • In another trial, in which a single repeat dose of prenatal betamethasone treatment was given in women with imminent preterm birth before 34 weeks' gestation, the requirement for surfactant therapy was increased. (medscape.com)
  • occur
  • Also, vaginal bleeding in the third trimester, heavy pressure in the pelvis, or abdominal or back pain could be indicators that a preterm birth is about to occur. (wikipedia.org)
  • twins
  • Such births are often named according to the number of offspring, as in twins and triplets. (wikipedia.org)
  • The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report more than 132,000 sets of twins out of 3.9 million births of all kinds each year, about 3.4%, or 1 in 30. (wikipedia.org)

  • lungs
  • One of the main organs greatly affected by premature birth is the lungs. (wikipedia.org)
  • After birth, the lungs release bradykinin to constrict the smooth muscle wall of the DA and reduce blood flow as it narrows and then completely closes. (wikipedia.org)
  • It's all because they had something they would have not needed before birth because they weren't using their lungs for ventilation before birth. (wikipedia.org)
  • obstetricians
  • In a separate review of past studies that failed to support bed rest, a trio of obstetricians and ethicists at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, went a step farther: They said it's not ethical to keep prescribing bed rest unless the women are enrolled in a research study, like they are for other unproven treatments.

  • women
  • She wants to see a more strict study - the kind that randomly assigns women to rest or not - to prove if there's a difference. (deseretnews.com)

  • Sometimes you feel less regret if you did something even though it didn't change the outcome," acknowledged Dolan, who herself has prescribed bed rest less often in recent years. (deseretnews.com)
  • cerclage
  • There is some evidence that the rate of premature birth can be dramatically reduced by the insertion of a vaginal pessary (cerclage pessary, CE0482, MED/CERT ISO 9003 / EN 46003). (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • hospital
  • I've been on hospital bed rest for 22 days now…and though I HATE it, I'm still pregnant. (sabirthclasses.com)

  • study
