Global Maternal Health Conference 2013

Eclampsia conditions vary as do the ability to treat these conditions given the capabilities of the health system. In Mexico, Karver and Garcia investigated the barriers and misuse of magnesium sulfate for implementation by evidence-based guidelines. Adu-Bonsaffoh studied early and late onset of preeclampsia in Ghana concluding that there may be a difference in pathogenesis of the two types of preeclampsia. Bhasin described how pregnancy complications may be marker for future incidences of cardiovascular disease based on results from India. In Nigeria, Ogu shared results from a successful intervention that retrained clinicians on management of eclamplia, finding a reduction in case-fatality rate from 15.1% to 2.7%.
