Clinical Guideline: Hypertenson in Pregnancy
PowerPoint presentation: Hypertension in Pregnancy
Hypertension complicates approximately 10% of pregnancies. It is associated with an increased risk for fetal morbidity (12% of preterm deliveries), maternal morbidity (stroke, renal failure, heart failure, eclampsia) and is one of the most common etiologies for maternal mortality (12-13%). The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologist published recommendations from their Task Force on Hypertension in Pregnancy in November 2013. The following guideline is based primarily on recommendations from the ACOG Task Force.
