Abstract: This seminar attempt to give an introduction to the preterm labor which is the main problem that the clinician face daily and the lack of sensibility of the current techniques in its detection. In this respect, Electrohysterography has emerged as an alternative non-invasive technique for monitoring uterine dynamic and therefore could potentially used for predicting preterm labor. The electrophysiological changes of uterine myoelectric activity throughout pregnancy will be described and I will present the main problem to develop the preterm labor prediction system.
