The Impact of Maternal Body Mass Index and Gestational Age on the Detection of Uterine Contractions by Tocodynamometry

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Objective: To examine the impact of maternal body mass index (BMI) and gestational age (GA) on uterine contraction detection by tocodynamometry. Methods: Gravidas with preterm labor (PTL) complaints who were evaluated by tocodynamometry, discharged from Labor and Delivery triage, and subsequently readmitted for preterm delivery were studied. Forty-six patients in whom contractions were detected (group 1) were compared to 49 women in whom contractions were not detected (group 2) with respect to BMI and GA at both evaluation and delivery. Multivariable logistic regression was used to adjust for confounders. Results: Group 2 had a higher mean BMI (31.7 vs 26.1, P
