Oxytocin is a commonly used drug in obstetrics and gynecology. Its main function is to promote contractions, promote milk secretion, and lower blood pressure.
1. Through the use of a certain dose of oxytocin during delivery, the contraction of the uterus can be increased to shorten the course of labor.
2. Oxytocin can also promote the contraction of the muscle tissue around the mammary gland and promote the discharge of milk from the mammary duct.
3. Oxytocin can also cause vascular smooth muscle relaxation to play a hypotensive effect.
