Résumé (français)  :

Abstract (English)  :

The claim that an upright maternal posture during labour improves the efficiency of the uterus to the benefit of both mother and fetus has been investigated in a randomised prospective study. 40 patients undergoing induction of labour were allocated to a recumbent group or an upright group. No differences were found between the groups in the length of labour, mode of delivery, requirements of oxytocic and analgesic drugs, or fetal and neonatal condition. Our data do not support calls to change conventional intrapartum nursing attitudes.

Argument (français) :

Etude randomisée contrôlée comparant l’accouchement en position verticale et en décubitus latéral. Les conclusions sont de bien peu de valeur eu égard a leur très faible statistique et au fait que les accouchements étaient déclenchés (donc conditions physiologiques non respectées). Etude prise en compte dans méta-analyse de Vendittelli 1998 (Fiche AFAR 2042)
