In this present study when amniotomy was done at 1 cm, 2 cms, 3 cms and 4 cms and more cervical dilatation and pitocin drip was started, the average time taken for full dilation was 6.36 hrs, 9.34 hrs and 3.03 hrs and 2.65 hrs respectively in comparison to 10.08 hrs, 7.23 hrs, 6.78 hrs and 5.4 hrs, 4.35 hrs in the control group. This shows that amniotomy and pitocin drip is effective in shortening the duration of labor. It has been further noted that there was shortening of labor of 48.46 %, 58.17 %, 60.00 % and 65.00 % in 1cm, 2cms, 3cms and 4cms cervical dilation cases respectively.
Cervical dilation, shortening labor.
