This article evaluated the repeatability and reproducibility (RR logBSC: 0.50–0.68 dB), indicating high measurement precision. These values are small compared to the ranges of AC (0.28–0.99 dB/cm-MHz) and logBSC (−33.16 to −20.35 dB) of the five phantoms. The AC and logBSC biomarkers measured on transvaginal QUS phantoms using the reference phantom method are repeatable, and reproducible between sonographers, transducers, and probe covers.

Abstract Objective To evaluate whether oxytocin titration for postdates labor induction differs among women who are normal weight, overweight, and obese and whether length of labor and birth method differ by oxytocin titration and body mass index (BMI). Design Retrospective cohort study. Setting U.S. university-affiliated hospital. Participants Of 280 eligible women, 21 were normal weight, 134 were overweight, and 125 were obese at labor admission. Methods Data on women who received oxytocin for...

Abstract Objective To examine iron metabolism during the second and third trimesters in African American women with high-risk pregnancies. Design Longitudinal pilot study. Setting Large, university-based, urban Midwestern U.S. medical center. Participants Convenience sample of 32 African American women with high-risk pregnancies seeking care at an urban maternal–fetal medicine clinic. Methods Nonfasting venous blood was collected in the second and third trimesters to assess iron status, hepcidin...

Introduction High rates of cesarean birth are a significant health care quality issue, and birth centers have shown potential to reduce rates of cesarean birth. Measuring this potential is complicated by lack of randomized trials and limited observational comparisons. Cesarean rates vary by provider type, setting, and clinical and nonclinical characteristics of women, but our understanding of these dynamics is incomplete. Methods We sought to isolate labor setting from other risk factors in orde...

Abstract Objective To examine the direct relationship between nutrient intake and cervical remodeling. Design Longitudinal descriptive design. Setting Maternal–fetal medicine clinic in a Midwestern urban city. Participants Forty-seven pregnant African American women. Methods Participants completed the Block brief food frequency questionnaire at 19 to 24 weeks and 27 to 29 weeks gestation and had quantitative ultrasonic attenuation estimates at 19 to 21 weeks, 23 to 25 weeks, 27 to 29 weeks, 31 t...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the association between pregnancy status and in-hospital mortality after cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in an inpatient setting. METHODS: We conducted a population-based cross-sectional study using the Nationwide Inpatient Sample databases (2002–2011). International Classification of Diseases, 9th Revision, Clinical Modification codes were used to define cases, comorbidities, and clinical outcomes. Rates of CPR among study groups were calculated by patient and hospital...
