Hi everyone! I'm a new L&D nurse and taking my intermediate fetal monitoring class and I'm learning so much. I learned a few things about pitocin that I'd never heard before, or even seen practiced.#1 90% of women will go into active labor on 6mu/min or less of Pit.#2 Once active labor is established, most women will continue labor on their own and pitocin can be discontinued. This is straight from the AWHONN material. I have never seen this done. They say the less pit the better for maternal-fetal status but most OB's I know love to up the pit and keep it there. So my question is, do you ever turn off the pit during adequate labor? This is probably something you would need MD approval of correct? Or is assumed that you turn off pit during adequate labor? Please share your input.
