This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet
Use of home uterine activity monitors as an adjunct to daily nurse contact does not decrease preterm delivery rates compared to either daily nurse contact alone or weekly nurse contact, according to a 2,422-patient study conducted by Kaiser Permanente. The study, reported in the Jan. 1 New England Journal of Medicine, also found that use of HUAMs correlated with an increase in both the number of unscheduled obstetrician visits and the use of prophylactic tocolytic drug therapy.
