In brief: Fetal statuss check
A oxytocin challenge test(oct) involves giving a pregnant mother the drug to stimulate at least 3 contractions in a 10 minute interval to check whether the fetal heart rate accelerates(reassuring) or declines.
It allows the OB md to check on the fetal status especially when there are concerns about the baby's wellbeing.
