The WHO recommends the Partogramm with a diagram. x axis the time, y axis the expansion of the nut/mother mouth (Dilatation). Since between both a linear relationship exists - Dilatation of the nut/mother mouth with 1 cm/1 hour, can indicate a 45°-Linie between x and y axis the normal process to the extension of the nut/mother mouth. With occurred delay the respect or also the action line (parallel to the first shifted in the 4-Stunden-Abstand to the right) is exceeded. The kolorierte/round Partogramm appears better suitable, in order to recognize with colour fields the current conditions.Suction bell, pliers birth, Kaiserschnitt).
