Course Created on: July 15, 2021
Course Expires on: July 15, 2024
Preeclampsia and eclampsia have long been documented in history, previously referred to as toxemia of pregnancy. Unfortunately, these conditions continue to be not well understood. Early-onset and late- onset are both known to be caused by a placental disorder; however, a maternal genetic predisposition to metabolic and cardiovascular disease has been noted in late-onset. The International Society for the Study of Hypertension in Pregnancy (ISHHP) considers hypertension in pregnancy to consist of a systolic blood pressure greater than 140 mmHg and a diastolic blood pressure greater than 90 mmHg. Additionally, the ISHHP recognizes late-onset as occurring at 34 weeks gestation or later. Other clinical manifestations can range in severity. Left untreated these disorders can result in maternal death and/or fetal demise (3).
This course will discuss the signs and symptoms of preeclampsia and eclampsia, as well as their diagnoses, and treatments. Upon competition of this course, the nurse should feel knowledgeable and comfortable providing patient education regarding the “red flags,” current treatments, when to notify a provider, and when to seek emergent care.
After completing this course, the learner will be able to:
• Recognize risk factors as well as signs and symptoms of preeclampsia.
• Learn how a diagnosis of preeclampsia is determined.
• Recognize the difference between preeclampsia and eclampsia and complications of both.
• Identify and provide patient teaching regarding “red flags.”
