Pitocin Mistakes in Houston, TX
Inappropriate Administration of Induction Drugs
Pitocin (oxytocin) is natural hormone often administered during labor and delivery to strengthen contractions or control postpartum bleeding. Unfortunately, the inappropriate administration of induction drugs such as Pitocin can have serious adverse consequences. Overusing Pitocin can cause the mother's contractions to become too frequent and/or too strong. This can interrupt the blood flow to the baby and deprive the infant of vital oxygen. It can also cause life-threatening conditions in the mother—such as a ruptured uterus.
