Abstract

MATERNAL INTRAMUSCULAR DEXAMETHASONE VERSUS BETAMETHASONE PREVIOUSLY PRETERM BIRTH

Dr. Nahidha Abduljabbar Mustafa*, Dr. Alaa Taher Tawfeeq and Dr. Mahmmoud Qassem Hammi

ABSTRACT

Dexamethasone and betamethasone are the two antenatal corticosteroids (ACS) recommended for accelerating fetal lung development in threatened preterm birth. The WHO, NIH, ACOG, RCOG, and WAPM list both as effective drugs for preventing complications of prematurity, using either a dosage of 24 mg of dexamethasone (4 doses of 6 mg 12 hours apart) or 24 mg of betamethasone (2 doses of 12 mg 24 hours apart). Historically, these drugs have often been used interchangeably, but betamethasone has sometimes been preferred, as in the current WAPM guideline.[1,2]
