MU. Alamelu Varsha | S. A Deshpande


Abstract: Placental cord drainage is unclamping the maternal side of the umbilical cord, thereby permitting the blood from the placenta to drain freely into a vessel immediately after the clamping and cutting of the umbilical cord. The aim was to study observe the Effects of Placental Cord Drainage on the third stage of labor progress. This study was an observational study carried out in the department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, who undergo spontaneous vaginal delivery over a period of six months were included in the study. This study population have been divided into two groups. In Group 1 (30 women-unclamped), Group 2 (30 women-clamped). The amount of blood loss and the time duration taken for the separation of placenta was noted in both groups. The mean duration of the third stage of labour was 6.36 ? 1.47 mins in Group 1 and 25.30 ? 4.98 mins in Group 2. The average amount of blood loss was 191.53 ? 37.51 ml in Group 1 and 359.63 ? 61.11 ml in Group 2. There was no retained placenta in the study. One patient in Group 2 had PPH.
