    1. I agree re specialists and we would love any of the specialist volunteers to help with the podcasts. Please email me if you are interested.

      Please note that Minnie and I are volunteers and have busy day jobs. We record these podcasts in our spare time as we are keen to impart education. Thanks.

       
  2. Hi,
    Please start Mg when severe pre-eclampsia (see below) or as soon as they are fitting. It needs to be continued until 24hrs after delivery, or if fitting until fit free for 24 hours.
    Severe pre-eclampsia: ‘There was a general agreement to define preeclampsia as severe if blood pressure was >160mmHg systolic or 110mmHg diastolic. There was scarce agreement on the amount of proteinuria to define severity. The HELLP syndrome was considered a feature to include in the severe classification. ‘
