Hyponatremia | Hyponatremia and Myometrium Contractility. An Invitro Study
Hyponatremia research study
What is the primary objective of this study?
Hyponatremia during labour has been associated with prolonged labour, and increased incidence
of instrumental delivery and emergency caesarean section. Sodium influx in myometral cells
are involved in contractility,and and influence of hyponatraemia on contractility can be
Who is eligible to participate?
- Singleton pregnancy at term
Which medical condition, disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury is researched?
Interventions can include giving participants drugs, medical devices, procedures, vaccines, and other products that are either investigational or already available or noninvasive approaches such as surveys, education, and interviews.
Research studies and clinical trials typically have two or more research arms. An arm is a group of people who receive the same treatment in the study.
