This study was conducted among pregnant females between gestational age of 38 weeks and 40 weeks to compare and evaluate the rate of cervical dilatation and duration of active phase of labour in patients receiving drugs Camylofin dihydrochloride and Drotaverine hydrochloride.
Methodology: Prospective interventional studywas conducted from October 2020 to September 2021 among 100 antenatal patients who were randomly divided into two groups, 50 patients in each group. Group I consisted of Camylofin and group II of Drotaverine.
Results: Mean Duration of active phase of labour was shorter in group I than in group II which is statistically significant. Mean cervical dilatation rate was significantly more in group I than group II. Mean Induction delivery interval was significantly more in group II than in group I.
Conclusion: Drotaverine hydrochloride and Camylofin dihydrochloride is effective in shortening the duration of first stage of labour by virtue of faster cervical dilatation there by helping in augmentation of labour. Camylofin dihydrochloride is a superior cervical dilatation agent as compared to Drotaverine hydrochloride and also it seems to be more effective in augmentation of labour.
