We conducted a series of case--control analyses: a) stillbirths (n = 106) compared with West Virginia live births (n = 1,844) because stillbirth information was available only from West Virginia; b) pregnancy-induced hypertension
rases (n = 224) compared with births without pregnancy-induced hypertension
(n = 3,828); c) preterm birth cases < 37 weeks (n = 3,613) and < 32 weeks (n = 491) corresponding to all preterm and very preterm births, respectively, compared with term births (n = 3,695), with assignment based on clinical assessment of gestational age; at) term low birth weight cases (n = 918) compared with term births [greater than or equal to] 2,500 g (n = 3,616); and e) term SGA cases [births < 10th percentile by gestational age and sex (Oken et al.
Snoring, witnessed sleep apnoeas and pregnancy-induced hypertension
It seemed to protect infants of women who experienced preterm labor and those of women with pregnancy-induced hypertension
It is persistent in the environment and has been linked with testicular and kidney cancers and pregnancy-induced hypertension
The study drew data from the Quebec Pregnancy Registry and compared 1,216 women who had been diagnosed with pregnancy-induced hypertension
with or without pre-eclampsia and with no history of hypertension before pregnancy, with 12,160 matched controls.
To evaluate patient risk, the guidelines incorporate illnesses linked to higher risk of cardiovascular disease in women, including lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, and pregnancy complications such as preeclampsia, gestational diabetes or pregnancy-induced hypertension
, haemorrhage and abortion complications were the most common causes of death, and the direct causes of death accounted for approximately 80% of all maternal deaths.
Physicians should ask about sleep-disordered breathing in women with gestational diabetes or pregnancy-induced hypertension
(PIH), he said.
Further regression analyses revealed several confounding factors: Six medical conditions--eclampsia, pregnancy-induced hypertension
, hypertension hot induced by pregnancy, heart disease, lever during labor and diabetes--as well as older age and preterm birth (i.
Previous terminology such as pregnancy-induced hypertension
has been abandoned.
About one in ten women with pre-eclampsia (also called pregnancy-induced hypertension
- a rise in blood pressure) in their first pregnancy get it again in their second.
High blood pressure, or pregnancy-induced hypertension
, can lead to preterm labor; reduced kidney function; or separation of the placenta, leading to bleeding and reduced blood flow to the baby and to possible retarded growth and development.
The association between the serum PCT values obtained from mothers and serum PCT in their healthy offspring at birth and at ages 24 and 48 h were investigated by multiple regression of the log PCT of the baby on the log PCT of the mother, whereas dummy variables were used to take account of the possible confounding effects of: gestational diabetes, pregnancy-induced hypertension
, intrapartum fetal distress, maternal GBS colonization, type of delivery (spontaneous vaginal, elective cesarean section, emergency cesarean section, and induced delivery), duration of active labor, interval (h) between rupture of the membranes and delivery, intrapartum antimicrobial administration, and use of epidural or general anesthesia.
Doctors understand very little about what causes pregnancy-induced hypertension
, including preeclampsia.
Other candidate hypotheses are that defective genes in the mother trigger abnormal metabolic pathways that cause hypertension and preeclampsia, and that ovarian insufficiency features reduced ovarian steroid production, causing vascular and immunologic changes that lead to pregnancy-induced hypertension
