The need for oxytocic
pharmaceuticals in the world will always remain contingent to the rise in pregnancy incidences and birth rate.
The outcomes measured were duration of third stage, amount of blood loss and incidence of PPH, use of additional oxytocic
drugs, drop in haemoglobin and haematocrit, need for blood transfusion, need for manual removal of placenta and occurrence of side effects such as shivering, fever, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea.
Modern contraceptives, oxytocic
drugs and cefixime are just three of 16 essential medicines and devices listed in a guidebook developed by PATH, UNFPA and WHO.
One of these, ergonovine, has been an effective oxytocic
agent, stimulating uterine contraction and speeding up labor.
The prophylactic use of oxytocic
drugs reduces the risk of postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) by about 40% and has been widely adopted as a routine policy in the active management of the third stage of labor.
Some plants that possess oxytocic
effects have been found to also have anti-fertility effects.
The conclusion of the study is that "Membrane sweeping at initiation of labor induction increased the spontaneous vaginal delivery rate, reduced oxytocic
drug use, shortened induction to delivery interval, and improved patient satisfaction.
Ergot alkaloid preparations are contraindicated in pregnancy because of dose-related developmental toxicity and oxytocic

In evaluating the oxytocic
activities of CPX, it is important to investigate its effect on other smooth muscles.
The effects of routine oxytocic
administration in the management of the third stage of labor: an overview of the evidence from controlled trials.
Also used for its analgesic, oxytocic
, antipyretic, and scierosing properties.
Vasopressor and oxytocic
effects are not noted at usual doses.
Effective treatment of hemorrhage often includes rapid manual removal of retained placenta, oxytocic
drugs, intravenous fluids, blood transfusion, and surgery.
Previously, in various studies intraumbilical oxytocin given in intraumbilical vein directly places this oxytocic
to retroplacental myometrium and helps in its contraction, thereby preventing PPH and also helps in early separation of placenta.
