Analysis of Caesarean Section Using Robson's Ten Group Classification at Tertiary Care Centre in North Rajasthan

Amrita Mishra | Jaya Chaudhary

Abstract: Caesarean section rate has been increasing worldwide. WHO (1985) stated that there is no justification for any region to have caesarean section rate higher than 10-15%. This study aims to analyse caesarean section rate trends using Robson's Ten Group Classification System at tertiary care centre in North Rajasthan. A retrospective observational study was done and all the details of the patients who underwent delivery in hospital were recorded. Women were categorized in Robson's classification group and absolute and relative group classification were calculated. There were total 2309 deliveries out of which 966 were by caesarean section, making caesarean section rate 41.8%. Group 5 followed by Group 2 were major contributors of caesarean sections. These target groups require more in depth analysis to identify possible modifiable factors and to apply possible interventions to reduce caesarean section rate.
