Abstract: The pregnant women attending antenatal clinics or labour room in C.P.R. Hospital,Kolhapur were screened by ultrasonography. The cases with gestational age more than 28 weeks with AFI equal to or less than 7 were included in study. The data was collected during 2013-2014. Cases falling into exclusion criteria were later excluded from study. Patients with AFI below 5cm were included in oligohydramnios group and AFI between 5cm to 7cm were included in low AFI group. All patients are distributed randomly between 180 and 120. As the particular therapy,cases selected for IV therapy on random basis if cases are refused for iv therapy were given oral fluid therapy. So distribution became unequal. There are similar groups with AFI <7 after comparing various factors. In our study, 180 patients were asked to drink 2 litres of water in 2 hours, preferably 250 ml every 15 minutes to cause minimal discomfort. 120 patients received IV hydration therapy, 2 litres of Ringer’s solution in 2 hours. Post hydration AFI was repeated at 48 hours.. Oral hydration and IV hydration group are separately studied. Both therapy has beneficial outcome in oligohydramnios patient.
