Induction Management Bundle Clarification Failed Induction Definition: Induced, but does not enter active labor (>6cms) Uterine contractions Failure to achieve contractions every 3 min with cervical change after 24 hrs of pitocin plus ruptured membranes (if no contraindications), or Contractions every 3 min x 24 hrs without entering active phase for those with initial Bishop score less than 8 or if cervical ripening used Inadequate response to a needed, clinically appropriate, second cervical ripening agent Membranes have been ruptured with inadequate progress (assuming feasible and no contraindications to AROM) Pitocin has been given per hospital protocol if inadequate frequency +/or intensity of contractions occur after cervical ripening alone If ROM, Pitocin given x 12 hrs without regular contractions resulting in cervical change Discuss options for further management: Consider RBA of all options (D/C home w/plan for f/u versus C-Section, depending on the clinical situation)
Laying the Foundation Early Establishment of EDD ACOG Criteria Estimated Date of Delivery - use EDD, not EDC and report as wks + days, not in decimals – eg 38 5/7 wks (ReVitalize, 12/2012) The best obstetrical Estimated Date of Delivery (EDD) is determined by: 1) Last menstrual period (LMP) if confirmed by early ultrasound or no ultrasound performed *, or 2) Early ultrasound if no known LMP or the ultrasound is not consistent with LMP, or 3) Known date of conception (eg. ART, IUI, IVF) dating * Ultrasound-established dates should take preference over menstrual dates when discrepancy is >7 days in 1 st tri and >10 days in the 2 nd tri. US considered to confirm menstrual dates if GA agreement within 1 week by 1 st trimester CRL or within 10 days by averaging multiple 2 nd trimester fetal biometric measurements (up to 20 wks gestation) ACOG Practice Bulletin 101
Laying the Foundation Early Establishment of EDD 8% Rule Comparison of Ultrasound with LMP clinical dating for best EDD Most accurate method at any gestational age Method (may be used by Radiology, MFM): Convert LMP & US EGAs from wks to days, multiply x.08 for # days diff & use US if greater, use LMP if less than calculated variance. Eg: LMP ga is 9wks (63days x.08 = +/-5 days) but US ga is 10wks (or 7days greater) – thus the US is most accurate EDD for this pg (by ACOG would stay with LMP dating since +/- 1 wk) Hadlock FP, Deter RL, Harrist RB, Park SK.

Laying the Foundation Induction Consent Combination Patient Education and Consent Form explains: Why induction is being done (Medical indication or Elective) Potential Risks & Benefits & Alternatives Possible options for cervical ripening, if needed Oxytocin use Providers appreciate the balance of informing women of the increased risk of C/section, longer labor, poor fetal transition, when induction is not medically necessary – but information is presented in a manner to not scare them if delivery is medically indicated. Discuss & Sign at time of Scheduling the Induction! Fax to L&D Some versions include Bishop Score, thus may aid schedulers Do not take the place of hospital consents for care
Medicaid Quality Incentive Safe Deliveries: Induction Appropriateness and Elective Deliveries Prior to 39 Weeks (Hospitals with obstetrical programs only) Improvement measure: percent of patients undergoing a medical or non medical labor induction with documentation of consent, Bishop Score, and indication Sustaining measure: percent of patients with Elective Deliveries 37 to less than 39 weeks gestational age
Induction Appropriateness Numerator: Number of patients undergoing a medical or non-medical induction with documentations of consent, Bishops score and indication Denominator: Number of patients undergoing a medical or non-medical induction Documentation sources for Bishop score and induction can be taken from the consent, medical record, or checklist available if audited by the Healthcare Authority. Hospitals are encouraged to make a part of the medical record if possible.
Induction Appropriateness (Cont:) For hospitals that use on each of their induction patients a standard hospital consent that includes all elements, no audit is needed. For written consent the following is required under RCW 7.70.060(1): Identification of patient Name of hospital in which treatment is to be performed Name of attending physician Nature, anticipated results, alternatives to and risk of proposed treatment, including nontreatment When the proposed treatment will be given Date and time of signing the consent Signature of patient or patients representative Witness If hospital does not use a standard consent for all induction patients, the hospital will conduct an audit of a minimum of thirty records randomly selected to review if all elements of consent are present. Audit must be available for the Health Care Authority to review. http://www.wsha.org/qualityincentive.cfm
Induction Appropriateness (Cont:) Fields to be reported: Number of patients undergoing a medical or non-medical induction with documentation of consent, Bishop score and induction indication. (numerator) Number of patients undergoing a medical or non-medical induction. (denominator) Data collection period: September 1, 2013 - December 31, 2013 Reporting deadline: 45 days following the end of the quarter Award table:
