Résumé (français)  :

En 1992, sur un total de 1122, 140 femmes avaient utilisé la chaise d’accouchement du département d’obstétrique et de gynécologie du LKH Modling. Nous les avons comparées à un groupe témoin en décubitus dorsal. Afin d’évaluer la sécurité des accouchements sur le tabouret d’accouchement, nous avons étudié la durée des étapes du travail, le taux et le degré des lésions des tissus mous, la perte de sang maternel, les résultats fœtaux et les complications du puerpérum. L’utilisation de la chaise d’accouchement n’a montré aucun risque accru pour la mère ou le fœtus et représente donc une alternative appropriée à la position couchée traditionnelle pour l’accouchement.

Abstract (English)  :

During 1992, 140 women out of a total of 1122 used the delivery chair at the department for obstetrics and gynaecology at the LKH Modling. We compared them to a control group in the supine position. In order to evaluate the safety of deliveries on the delivery chair, we studied the duration of the stages of labour, rate and degree of soft tissue injuries, maternal blood loss, fetal outcome and complications in the puerperium. The use of the delivery chair showed no increased risk to either the mother or the fetus and therefore represents an appropriate alternative to the traditional supine position for delivery.
