Obstetric Providers

Guidelines

Key Differences for Obstetric Providers in 2010 Guidelines compared to 2002 Guidelines

  • There are revised algorithms for GBS screening and use of intrapartum antibiotic prophylaxis (IAP) for women with threatened preterm delivery, including one algorithm for preterm labor and one for preterm premature rupture of membranes.
  • Recommendations for IAP agents are presented in an algorithm format in an effort to promote use of the most appropriate antibiotic for penicillin-allergic women.
  • A minor change has been made to penicillin dosing for those women not allergic to penicillin.
