In standard definitions, tachysystole is defined when more than 5 contractions occur in 10 minutes, hypertonus when a contraction lasts for more than 120 seconds, and hyperstimulation when excessive uterine activity with a non-reassuring fetal heart rate presents.
Uterine hyperstimulation was diagnosed if the number of contractions was more than five in 10 minute intervals (tachysystole) with duration of each contraction of two minutes or more (hypertonus) and if they were associated with fetal distress.
A four-year study published in The Journal of Maternal-Fetal & Neonatal Medicine revealed that a better identifier of the risk of serious neonatal depression at birth is the presence of fetal heart rate decelerations in conjunction with excessive contractions, or uterine tachysystole (UT).
The MVI group experienced more uterine activity--related adverse events, including tachysystole requiring intervention (13.3% vs.
These include reducing contractions in a woman with tachysystole of the uterus due to pitocin or for intrauterine resuscitation, adjunct to external cephalic version, relaxing an inverted uterus or as an adjunct to managing inversion of the uterus, transporting a patient with contractions from one location to another, and rarely when delivering a second twin if the uterus needs to be relaxed.
Anthony John Giefer testified that Cytotec is a drug used to induce labor, and that hyperstimulation or tachysystole are risks associated with Cytotec and other induction drugs.
In the guideline, the descriptions (Normal, Suspicious, Pathological, Acute Fetal Compromise, Uterine Tachysystole and Hyper-stimulation) all have associated action plans to guide practitioners.
(5) Hyperstimulation was defined as an abnormal fetal heart rate pattern in the presences of tachysystole (5 or more contractions in 10 minutes).
These researchers found that women receiving this drug in high doses were more likely to experience tachysystole and uterine hyperstimulation than women who were not given this agent.
There is an increase in the incidence of tachysystole (having more than 6 contractions in a 10 minute time frame): 22.8% vs.
Secondary outcome measures included length of time for preinduction cervical ripening, total time for induction, delivery route, uterine tachysystole, side effects, subject comfort, and other fetal heart rate disturbances.
Gestational age, parity, Induction starting time with misoprostol, initiation of uterine contractions, induction delivery interval, caesarean section and vaginal delivery rate and other variables including tachysystole, improvement in Bishop score, foetal outcome were recorded on the checklist.
