Introduction of partographic records in a District hospital in Zambia and development of nomograms of cervical dilatation
Partographic records of labour have been successfully introduced in a district hospital in Zambia. Nomograms of cervical dilatation show no significant difference compared to those obtained by other workers in other parts of the world. There was no difference in the duration of the active phase of the lst stage of labour between multiparous patients (para 1 4) and grand multiparous patients (para greater than 4).
