            Nitroglycerin is administered intravenously in acute obstetric emergencies to relax the uterus. However, complications (eg, hypotension, acute uterine bleeding) are frequent, which prompted a search for alternative routes of administration. We hypothesized that the sublingual administration of nitroglycerin would reduce uterine tone and contractility with few complications. Intrauterine pressure was measured in 12 women who were actively laboring (>4 cm dilatation, regular contractions) with epidural analgesia and who were alert and responsive throughout the study.
