In the current study, researchers intend to measure the effectiveness and protection of high and low dose oxytocin for the rising of labor, on the process of delivery. One hundred pregnant women needed growth of labor for inadequate uterine contractions, even 1 hour after ARM [If membranes intact], and cervical dilatation is at least 3 cm or more. These cases were selected randomly and were assigned to either a low dose (2.5 mU/min) or a high dose(5 mU/min) regimen. The study included an equal number of primigravida and multigravida in each group.

The high dose oxytocin group was associated with a significantly shorter duration of labor, as indicated by shortened augmentation to full dilatation and augmentation to a delivery gap in primigravidae in contrast to the low dose group, but not in multigravida. Both in multigravida and primigravida, maximum oxytocin dose was high with high dose regimen compared to low dose. High dose oxytocin is better to low dose oxytocin for labor augmentation for efficient dystocia in primigravida. High dose oxytocin augmentation in primigravida is connected with a considerable decrease in the first stage of labor without any unpleasant perinatal and maternal morbidity or mortality
