6 Conclusions

6.1 The Committee concluded that the Vision Amniotic Leak Detector (ALD) test is sufficiently accurate to exclude amniotic fluid leak as a cause of wetness in pregnancy and that its use in the correct clinical setting would avoid unnecessary speculum examinations.

6.2 The Committee considered that use of the Vision ALD in the community could generate cost savings and avoid the discomfort and inconvenience of unnecessary speculum examinations in some pregnant women.

6.3 The Committee concluded that the adoption of the Vision ALD, with appropriate changes to clinical practice in the community, should be encouraged.
