A Study of Maternal and Fetal Outcome in Eclampsia in a Tertiary Referral Centre
Dr Vinod K Nair, Dr Reshmi V P
This study aims to find out the relationship between sociodemographic parameters and eclampsia, to assess complications and outcome in mother and child due to eclampsia and how to prevent maternal and fetal complications by prompt interventions. This was a case control study conducted over a period of 2 years.Cases were patients with eclampsia who were compared with controls who were patients without eclampsia. In this study it was found that early referral, intensive management of severe hypertension and introduction of newer and better treatment protocols are essential prerequisites to improve the maternal and fetal outcome. Incidence of eclampsia is still high in our population. Maternal deaths and morbidity have reduced. Inspite of advanced neonatal care, 1 offspring out of 4 is still lost. Early intervention and prompt management should be our goal to improving maternal and fetal outcome in eclampsia.
