A hospital based prospective study was conducted to determine the role of paperless partograph in monitoring primiparous and multiparous labour by comparing with the WHO Modified partograph. The course of labour in 400(200 primiparous and 200 multiparous) women with term, singleton pregnancies with vertex presentation in labour without any complications was studied by using either partographs in groups of 200 (100 primiparous and 100 multiparous) and the labour outcome of primiparous and multiparous compared. The rate of caesarean section was 9% primiparous and 13% multiparous monitored by Paperless partograph as against 9% primiparous and 12% multiparous of the WHO one. Augmentation was required in 8% primiparous and 5% multiparous cases subjected to the Paperless partograph which was comparable to the WHO Modified partograph. The labour Paperless partograph was similar to the WHO Modified partograph in monitoring primiparous and multiparous labour as an effective means to prevent prolonged labour and its sequel.
