(15, 16) Misoprostol with minimum doses of 25 mcg administered orally, vaginally, sublingually, or buccally was compared to prostaglandin E2 in a systematic review, which concluded that misoprostol, compared to prostaglandin E2, was associated with increased risks of tachysystole and hyperstimulation, high rates of vaginal delivery within 24 hours, low rates of oxytocin use, and increased meconium staining.
In the present study, only one case from Group B (vaginal) developed Tachysystole (2.9%), this difference was not statistically significant.
(10) Although both uterine tachysystole and nonreassuring fetal-heart tracing are well recognized potential complications of misoprostol use, (19) and such events did occur in this research, none of the studies demonstrated a difference in maternal or fetal outcomes between the outpatient and inpatient settings.
Both agents have similar CS rates, but Foley catheters result in increased need for oxytocin stimulation and there is more tachysystole with PG18.
(11) Reported adverse effects of misoprostol, such as vomiting, diarrhoea, tachysystole or hyperstimulation, were not recorded in this study, possibly because of the single low dose administered.
These patterns are believed to reflect uteroplacental insufficiency, which is usually caused by uterine tachysystole, maternal hypoxia, or maternal hypotension, the latter of which often occurs after the administration of regional anesthesia.
Giefer, Wyatt's condition at birth was "due to the hyperstimulation, probably tachysystole that was not recognized.
ACOG advises against the use of misoprostol, a prostaglandin [E.sub.1] analogue, in VBAC inductions because of reports in the literature linking it to complications such as tachysystole, hyperstimulation, and even uterine rupture.
Secondary outcome measures included frequency of tachysystole (contraction frequency of more than 5 in a 10-minute period or 2 consecutive 10-minute periods) and hyperstimulation (exaggerated uterine response with late fetal heart rate decelerations or fetal tachycardia greater than 160 beats per minute) associated with route of administration.
Even though 4 cases of tachysystole occurred with the use of oxytocin and 3 cases with vaginal misoprostol, the effect was reversible in minutes without any maternal and foetal morbidities and mortalities.
Incidence of uterine tachysystole and hyperstimulation is reported to be higher then Prostaglandin E2 vaginal tablet18.
The elective induction bundle includes four criteria: a gestational age of at least 39 weeks, a normal fetal status at the start, pelvic exam documented prior to the start, and recognition and management of uterine tachysystole.
During induction of labour, a CTG must be started within 30 minutes of administering the dose to exclude fetal heart changes, or the presence of tachysystole (>5 contractions in 10 minutes) or hypertonus (contraction lasting >2 minutes).
Concerns about using misoprostol in VBAC patients stems from reports in the literature linking it to complications such as tachysystole, hyperstimulation, and uterine rupture.
Outcomes measured Outcomes evaluated included cesarean birth rate, need for oxytocin augmentation, time to delivery, occurrence of active labor during the ripening period, incidences of tachysystole and hyperstimulation (abnormal fetal heart tracing in the setting of tachysystole), abnormal 5-minute Apgar scores, and admissions to a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).
