Re: Continued versus discontinued oxytocin stimulation in the active phase of labour (CONDISOX): double blind randomised controlled trial

Dear Editor,

I would like to ask if you really did a double blind trial. I´ve seen you reference it as a double blind controlled trial, however in the paragraph were you talk about the "Randomisation and masking" you literally say: "Accordingly, women, care givers, and trial managers were all blinded to the allocation."
If I read this, I understand it is a triple blind trial because neither women, caregivers nor trial managers knew the allocations. So, I may be pleased if you could clarify this information.

Thank you very much.
