Use of McRoberts' position during delivery and increase in pushing efficiency.
Lancet. 2001 Aug 11;358(9280):470-1.

Résumé (français) :

Abstract (English):

McRoberts' position is used during the second stage of labour to facilitate delivery of the fetal shoulders. Few clinical studies have been done to measure its efficacy. We measured intrauterine pressure in 22 women in term labour, after the vertex reached 3+ station, in the dorsal lithotomy position. Patients pushed with legs either in stirrups or hyperflexed by 1358 (McRoberts' position). Maternal valsalva transiently increased the expulsive force by 32% over naturally occurring contractions. Use of McRoberts' position almost doubled the intrauterine pressure developed by contractions alone (from 1653 mm Hg s to 3262 mm Hg s [97%]).
