Post Definition for Arrest of labor in the first stage

In UW, it is stated as "dilation >6cm with no cervical change for 4hrs despite adequate contractions OR no cervical change for 6hrs with inadequate contractions."
This is so different from what I've been taught: dilation >4cm with no cervical dilations for 2hrs OR no fetal descent for 1hr. Can anyone clarify this to me?

Fetal descent is 2nd stage of labor (arrest is more than 2hrs in primi, more than 1hr in multi)
For first stage (active phase) - proctaction disorder = cervix dilated 3 cm or more, dilation not occuring at rate of 1.2 cm/hr in primi or 1.5 cm/hr in multi
Arrest = cervix dilated 3 or more cm; no cerivical dilation in 2-3 hours
