Oxytocin Misuse

PeriGen's New Oxytocin Checklist Add-On for PeriCALM PatternsExcessive use of contraction-stimulating drugs has been found to be the underlying problem in 45% of fetal brain injuries.  That’s why oxytocin checklists were developed.  These powerful safety tools, however, are only used 40% of the time.

Dr. Emily Hamilton, who leads PeriGen’s Clinical Research team, has developed a break-through tool to help make oxytocin protocol compliance easier, more integrated with labor and delivery workflows, and more reliabl.

“How to Add an Oxytocin Checklist to Your EFM System,” as webinar featuring Dr. Hamilton, will review the relevant research and include a demonstration of the new Oxytocin Checklist Add-On. Space is filling fast.  Early registration is suggested
