Active Management of Labor AML was introduced in the 1960s
Active Management of Labor (AML) was introduced in the 1960s to reduce the amount of time a woman spends in labor during the birth process. R. Rogers et al. conducted a study to determine whether AML also translates into a reduction in delivery cost to the patient. They reported their findings in the paper “Active Management of Labor: A Cost Analysis of a Randomized Controlled Trial” (Western Journal of Medicine, Vol. 172, pp. 240–243). The following table displays the costs, in dollars, of eight randomly sampled AML deliveries.
