Abstract: Objective: To conduct a comparative study between use of salbutamol versus nifedipine by oral route in prevention of preterm labor
Method: The study was conducted in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, M.G.M. Medical College and M.Y. Hospital, Indore (M.P.) during the period from August 2015 to August 2016.
Results and Conclusion: Nifedipine was found to be better tocolytic than salbutamol as it prolonged the pregnancy for more than 48 hrs. in which period steroids could be administered to patient in labor and hence the chances of respiratory distress syndrome in neonate could be reduced, and there were lesser side effects with use of nifedipine with no serious maternal adverse effects which makes it one of the best tocolytics to be used in pregnancy.
