Why do we do amnioinfusion?

Amnioinfusion is being used to treat intrapartum problems known to be associated with fetal compromise , including prophylactic treatment of oligohydramnios during labor and after premature rupture of the membranes, treatment of severe variable decelerations during labor and reducing the risk of meconium aspiration .

What is the purpose of an amnioinfusion?

Amnioinfusion is a technique of replacing amniotic fluid during labor via a transcervical intrauterine catheter (see Chapter 18, Section C). Infusion of fluid expands the amniotic cavity space and relieves cord compression .

When is an amnioinfusion indicated?

Aetna considers amnioinfusion medically necessary for any of the following indications: Prophylactic treatment of oligohydramnios, or . Reduction of variable decelerations of the fetal heart rate because of cord compression during labor , or.

What is a amnioinfusion in nursing?

Amnioinfusion is a method of replacing intrauterine amniotic fluid volume through intrauterine infusion of a saline solution using a pressure catheter . This method simply and effectively relieves variable decelerations not alleviated by the conventional measures of maternal position change and oxygen administration.
