24 Hypertension in Pregnancy
the most common medical problem encountered in pregnancy WHO (2006) – 16% of maternal deaths in developed countries remains an important cause of morbidity and mortality

25 Risk Factors Young age and nulliparity multiple pregnancy BMI > 35
African American ethnicity Maternal age > 35 years old History of chronic hypertension Family history

26 Definition systolic BP (SBP) ≥ 140mmHg and/or
diastolic BP (DBP) ≥ 90mmHg confirmed by readings over several hours apart

27 Categories of Hypertensive Diseases
Gestational Hypertension Preeclampsia Eclampsia Preeclampsia superimposed on Chronic Hypertension Chronic Hypertension

28 Gestational Hypertension
Describes any form of new-onset pregnancy-related hypertension – Transient Hypertension BP ≥ 140/90 mm Hg for first time during pregnancy No proteinuria BP returns to normal < 12 weeks postpartum Final diagnosis is made only postpartum May have other signs or symptoms of preeclampsia (e.g. Epigastric discomfort, thrombocytopenia)

29 Preeclampsia gestational HPN with proteinuria Minimum Criteria:
BP ≥ 140/90 mm Hg after 20 weeks gestation Proteinuria ≥ 300 mg/24 hours or ≥ 1+ dipstick * edema is abandoned as a marker because it occurs in normal pregnant woman

30 Eclampsia Preeclampsia complicated by generalized tonic clonic convulsions – cannot be attributed to other causes One of the most dangerous conditions in pregnancy Most common in the last trimester and becomes increasingly more frequent as term approaches Prognosis is always serious

31 Superimposed Preeclampsia on Chronic Hypertension
New onset proteinuria > 300 mg/24 hours in hypertensive women but no proteinuria before 20 weeks’ gestation Sudden increase in proteinuria/ Blood Pressure/ platelet count <100,000/mm3 before 20 wks AOG (on a chronic hypertensive patient)

32 Chronic Hypertension detection prior to 20 weeks AOG and persistence beyond 12 weeks postpartum

33 Preeclampsia

34 Increased Certainty BP ≥ 160/110 mm Hg Proteinuria
Serum creatinine > 1.2mg/dl unless known to be previously elevated Platelets < 100,000/mm3 increased LDH (Microangiopathic hemolysis) Elevated ALT or AST Persistent headache or other cerebral or visual disturbance Persistent epigastric pain

35 Indications on Severity of Preeclampsia
Abnormality Mild Severe Diastolic BP <100 mmHg > 110 mmHg Proteinuria Traces to +1 Persistent > +2 Headache Absent Present Visual disturbance RUQ pain Oliguria Convulsion Serum Creatinine Normal Elevated Thrombocytopenia <100, 000 Liver enzyme elevation Minimal Marked Fetal growth restriction Obvious Pulmonary Edema

36 Abnormal Placentation in Preeclampsia
Pseudovasculogenesis Cytotrophoblasts fail to adopt an invasive endothelial phenotype Invasion of the spiral arteries is shallow – remains small caliber, resistance vessels Placental Ischemia

37 Pathophysiology

38 Normotensive gravidas
Decreased pressor responsiveness to several vasoactive peptides and amines, esp Angiotensin II Preeclampsia Hyperresponsiveness to angiotensin II and endothelin

39 Basic Management Guidelines
Termination of pregnancy with least possible trauma to the mother and the fetus Birth of an infant who subsequently thrives Complete restoration of the health to the mother

40 Preeclampsia Management
Goal of Management: early identification of worsening preeclampsia and development of a management scheme that includes a plan for timely delivery Hospitalization Evaluate: maternal weight and maternal status BP monitoring q4 creatinine, hematocrit, platelet count, Liver transaminases Urinalysis every 2 days Fetal BPS, doppler velocimetry

41 Termination of Pregnancy
Headache, visual disturbances, epigastric pain or oliguria are indicative that convulsions may be imminent Delivery is usually advisable for severe preeclampsia that does not improve after hospitalization Labor should be induced by intravenous oxytocin Cesarian delivery is indicated for cases of failed induction

42 Some Indications for Delivery in Early-Onset Severe Preeclampsia
Maternal Persistent severe headache or visual changes; eclampsia Shortness of breath; chest tightness with rales and/or SaO2 < 94 percent breathing room air; pulmonary edema Uncontrolled severe hypertension despite treatment Oliguria < 500 mL/24 hr or serum creatinine 1.5 mg/dL Persistent platelet counts < 100,000/L Suspected abruption, progressive labor, and/or ruptured membranes

43 Fetal Severe growth restriction—< 5th percentile for EGA Persistent severe oligohydramnios—AFI < 5 cm Biophysical profile 4 done 6 hr apart Reversed end-diastolic umbilical artery flow Fetal death

44 Effects of Expectant Management for Severe preeclampsia
Maternal: placental abruption (20%), HELLP syndrome, pulmonary edema (4%), renal failure, and eclampsia Perinatal mortality rates averaged from 39 to 133 per Fetal-growth restriction and perinatal mortality Risks for eclampsia, cerebrovascular hemorrhage, and maternal death.

45 Intrapartum Management
Magnesium SO4 - used to arrest and prevent convulsions w/o producing generalized CNS depression Loading dose: 4 gms IV, 10 gms IM Maintenance dose: 5 gms q 4 hrs Therapeutic level: 4-7 mEq/L Loss of patellar reflex: 8-10mEq/L Respiratory depression: 10mEq/L Respiratory arrest: 12 mEq/L Treatment MgSO4 toxicity: calcium gluconate, 1 gm IV, Oxygenation

46 MOA: Anti-convulsant Acts by:
1. Neuronal calcium-channel blockade through N methyl- d-aspartate receptors 2. Reversal of cerebral arterial vasoconstriction distal to the middle cerebral arteries 3. Release of endothelial prostacyclin and inhibition of platelet clumping

47 Intermittent intramural injections
Every 4 hours thereafter, give 5 g of a 50% solution of magnesium sulfate injected deeply in the upper outer quadrant of alternate buttocks, but only after ensuring that a. the patellar reflex is present b. respirations are not depressed c. urine output the previous 4 hours exceeded 100ml Magnesium sulfate is discontinued 24 hours after delivery

48 Anti-hypertensive Therapy
Hydralazine - Causes direct relaxation of arteriolar vascular smooth muscle Drug of choice for rapid control of acute hypertension 5 mg initial dose, 5-10 mg q m IV until there’s satisfactory response (DBP mmHg) Side-effects: palpitations, tachycardia, headaches, flushing

49 a1- and nonselective -blocker.
Labetalol a1- and nonselective -blocker. fewer side effects (maternal hypotension and bradycardia) Initial: 10 mg IV q10 – 20 mg, then 40 mg, 40 mg, 80 mg maximum dose of 220 mg per treatment cycle Nifedipine - 10 mg PO q30 min. third line drug that acts by limiting calcium channel causing relaxation of smooth muscle

50 Prophylaxis Aspirin, 60-80 mg OD
suppression of thromboxane synthesis by platelets and promoting prostacyclin production Antioxidants significantly reduces endothelical cell activation

51 Thank you!

52 Fetal Monitoring in Gestational Hypertension and Preeclampsia
(hypertension only without proteinuria, with normal laboratory results, and without symptoms) Estimation of fetal growth and amniotic fluid status should be performed at diagnosis. If results are normal, repeat testing only if there is significant change in maternal condition Nonstress test (NST) should be performed at diagnosis. If NST is nonreactive, perform biophysical profile (BPP). If BPP value is eight or if NST is reactive, repeat testing only if there is significant change in maternal condition

53 Anti-hypertensive Therapy
1. Methyldopa - First line anti-hypertensive agent MOA: stimulation of central alpha-adrenergic receptors by a false transmitter that results in a decreased sympathetic outflow to the organ systems. mg tab Q6 Lowers BP by reducing sympathetic outflow from brainstem Suited for long-term use

54 Patient admitted to HRPU
D5LR 1 liter to run for 8 hours Demerol 50 mg IV now Hydralazine 4 mg IV stat Magnesium sulfate 5 mg IM buttocks
