Benefits of a positive Rapid fFN® result

Opportunities for better patient management

Approximately 20% of patients will receive a positive Rapid fFN® result.1 This identifies patients that are at an increased risk for preterm labor and crates an opportunity to provide them with optimal care.

A positive Rapid fFN® result can help:

  • Identify patients for interventions such as the following:
    • Antenatal steroids
    • Magnesium sulfate
    • Patient counseling
  • Make appropriate preparation for optimal neonatal care:
    • Admissions
    • Transfers

Optimal administration of steroids

A single course of corticosteroids is recommended for women at high risk of preterm delivery. However, timing is important because ACOG recommends no more than 2 doses during the course of a pregnancy. Both negative and positive fFN test results can help guide management decisions related to administration of antenatal corticosteroids.2
