OBJECTIVE Power spectrum (PS) of uterine electromyography (EMG) can identify true labor. EMG propagation velocity (PV) to diagnose labor has not been reported. The objective was to compare uterine EMG against current methods to predict preterm delivery. STUDY DESIGN EMG was recorded in 116 patients (preterm labor, n = 20; preterm nonlabor, n = 68; term labor, n = 22; term nonlabor, n = 6). A Student t test was used to compare EMG values for labor vs nonlabor (P < .05, significant). Predictive… Expand
