Why choose synthetic oxytocin?

0

Synthetic oxytocin has a relatively short half-life (about 15 minutes), which means that it is easy to reduce the dosage or stop the medication if the uterus becomes hyper stimulated or if the baby shows signs of distress. Synthetic oxytocin is cheaper and easier to store than the more effective prostaglandin E2 preparations, making it more easily available.
