Mwakio Patterson


Abstract: Pre - eclampsia is pregnancy specific syndrome that is characterized by hypertension accompanied by proteinuria, developing after the 20th week of gestation in an otherwise normotensive patient. It is a significant cause of maternal mortality and morbidity. According to WHO report of 2019, Pre - eclampsia was the 3rd cause of mortality contributing about 14% of maternal mortality globally. This syndrome complicates about 2 - 5% of pregnancy, according to WHO report of 2019. The prevalence of Pre - eclampsia is estimated to be 10% in Africa with a mortality rate of 4 in every 1000 births in Ethiopia, Alemayehu belay et at 2016. The prevalence of pre - eclampsia in Kenya is estimated to range between 5.6 to 6.5%, but the number is expected to be higher in rural areas, Charity Ndwiga et al 2017.
