Assessing patients with symptoms of preterm labor
Determining which patients are in preterm labor is a significant challenge. The vast majority of women presenting with symptoms of preterm labor are not in true preterm labor and will go on to give birth at term.1 However, the consequences of missing the opportunity to provide critical interventions in even one patient can be significant.
Standardizing care is critical to improving outcomes
Clinical assessment alone is subjective and not predictive
Adding fFN testing increases predictivity of cervical length9
Accurate results are variable even in the hands of skilled and well-trained clinicians when assessing risk of preterm birth by cervical length (CL). Adding fFN testing to cervical length can dramatically improve preterm birth prediction by as much as 50%.
