The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) has published a technical bulletin on preterm labor (ACOG Technical Bulletin no. 206; June 1995). The document covers the etiology and epidemiology, risk assessment, prevention and management of preterm labor. The section on management includes tocolysis, adjunctive therapy and considerations for delivery. The bulletin has two tables; one on the potential complications of tocolytic agents and another on contraindications to tocolysis for preterm labor.
