Pregnancy and Maternal Conditions That Increase Risk of Morbidity and Mortality Workshop (Day 2)

The purpose of the meeting is to develop a research agenda targeted at the clinical causes of maternal morbidity and mortality. An interdisciplinary team of experts will address the question of why women die from these conditions (i.e. postpartum hemorrhage, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, infection, etc. ) and what can be done to identify patients at risk, and the interventions required to reduce maternal morbidity and mortality.For more information go tohttp://www.cvent.com/d/pnqp0wAir date: 5/20/2020 8:00:00 AM

Conclusions: In this study, a total of 27.1% of women of reproductive age with CD had pregnancy-associated CD, which might be induced by the hormonal milieu of pregnancy. An increased risk of having a LBW newborn was observed among mothers with pregnancy-associated CD. A high degree of clinical suspicion for CD may be warranted in the peripartum period. Patients with symptoms suspicious for CD throughout pregnancy and after childbirth, such as early-onset hypertension, severe hyperglycemia, and persistent weight gain, should be carefully diagnosed and closely monitored by clinicians.
