Pt. in labour; after delivery of the 1st twin has the other twin in vertex presentation & at station -1, memb. are ruptured. There is no contraction for 20 minutes. What will you do ?
a. -Oxytocin drip
b. -C-section
c. -Forceps
d. -Vacuum
e. -Wait





Twin A was delivered vaginally successfully. As much as possible vaginal delivery also for twin B so i must say ..a... also.. give oxytocin drip , besides, Twin B is in vertex presentation. I am thinking of E but then 20 mins. is already long enough so give oxytocin..
