Primary Cesarean

Measure Definition

Measure Definition

A surgical operation in which the baby is delivered through incisions (cuts) made in the mother's abdomen and uterus. A Primary Cesarean Section is the mother's first, even if she has given birth vaginally before. The percentage is the percentage of total births.

The "value" for a particular measure includes the performance designation and the corresponding score. In certain cases, facilities may display the same score for the same measure, but differ in their performance designation due to a difference in the number of patients. Generally, facilities with fewer patients are less likely to be ranked as low or high performers.

A surgical operation in which the baby is delivered through incisions (cuts) made in the mother's abdomen and uterus. A Primary Cesarean Section is the mother's first, even if she has given birth vaginally before. The percentage is the percentage of total births.
