An intrauterine pressure catheter (IUPC) is a short flexible tube inserted into the uterus and placed between the baby and the uterine wall to monitor contractions internally. Unlike external sensors, it has precise contraction calculations. If the strength of contractions has to be measured, an intrauterine pressure catheter is inserted, usually to determine the adequacy of involuntary contractions in cases of arrested cervical dilation. Moreover, the use of oxytocin during high-risk delivery with signs of fetal discomfort can be reduced by inserting an intrauterine pressure catheter. In patients for whom external tocodynamometry does not pick up contractions well, such as obese patients, an intrauterine pressure catheter may provide a more precise measurement of contraction size, volume, and strength. All these factors will positively boost industry over the next few years.
However, complications associated with placement of intrauterine pressure catheters such as uterine perforations is anticipated to impede the growth of the market in the coming years.
