You WB, Julien S
Educational Needs Addressed Preeclampsia is a pregnancy-specific condition that affects up to 8% of the gravid population. The syndrome is a leading cause of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality worldwide. Despite its relatively high prevalence, the etiology of preeclampsia remains elusive and the only definitive treatment is delivery. Women’s health care providers have a responsibility for the diagnosis and management of preeclampsia and to be aware of the potential long-term health risks preeclampsia confers. Educational Objectives After participating in this CME activity, primary care physicians should be able to 1. Describe the approach to patient evaluation 2. Discuss the elements of appropriate maternal and fetal surveillance 3. Discuss the management of severe preeclampsia 4. Identify current standards of management in the inter- and postpartum periods
