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. ‘ Indeed the podcast is very helpful. Remainding us the importance of regular BP check during ANC. Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
