Malinas score :

Time to full dilation :


is a numerical assessment that determines whether a pregnant woman will soon give birth. It was invented by Yves Malinas.

In an extra-hospital setting, this makes it possible to know whether the parturient is going to give birth imminent way or if we have time to transport it. It is based on five criteria: number of previous pregnancies, duration of labour, duration of contractions, interval between contractions and the loss or not of the waters.

Interpretation of THE MALINAS SCORE

If the score is less than or equal to 5, delivery is unlikely to occur before 1 hour. The Malinas B score makes it possible to specify an order of idea in terms of time before complete dilation if the cervix is at least 5 cm dilated.
