Subject:       Oxytocin use for augmentation

 

Request:

Following up to 2018-650 – FOI Request – Maternity care provision, I wonder if it’s possible to know the rate of oxytocin use for augmentation (i.e. used when labour is considered slow, not to induce labour).

 

 

Response:

Unfortunately we are unable to provide this information. This is due to the code for induction of labour and augmentation of labour being the same.
