A Study of Hematological Parameters related to Platelets in Normal Pregnancy and Pregnancy Induced Hypertension

L. Reshma Shireesha | K. Prashanth

Abstract: Objective: To compare hematological parameters in relationship with platelets in normal pregnancy and Pregnancy induced hypertension. Methods: Bleeding time (Duke’s method), Clotting time (Lee and white method), And Platelet count direct method (Breecher kronkite method), Assay of PT/APTT. Results: Comparative decrease in platelet count as the pressure rises in PIH. There is prolongation of PT and APTT compared to normal pregnant women. The thrombocytopenia (which is physiological in gestation) becomes critical when the platelet function activity is affected and platelet count falls below 1Lakh /cmm (calling for intervention, alarming as count
