CASE STUDY

Pregnancy Induced Hypertension

Introduction Eclampsia, a dramatic and often unpredictable complication of pregnancy-induced hypertensive disorders, is characterized by sudden hypertension, proteinuria, edema, and seizures. A relatively rare syndrome, eclampsia complicates approximately 3 in 100 pregnancies, with higher incidence rates in preeclamptic or twin pregnancies, women of low socioeconomic status or in developing countries, and nulliparous patients younger than 20 years or multiparous patients older than 35 years of age. However many medical disorders can occur during pregnancy, childbirth, and in the post delivery time. One of those disorders in pregnancy is eclampsia. Eclampsia is a major cause of perinatal morbidity and mortality and can present during the antepartum, intrapartum, or postpartum periods. Late postpartum eclampsia presents as convulsions, with onset occurring at more than 48 hours postpartum.

Demographic Data

Eclampsia was found to be more common among young and adolescent women . Age Distribution Age group [ years ] 22 [46.80%] 19 [40.42%] 3 [6.38% ] 3 [ 6.38%] 19 or less 20-24 25-29 30 or more

Significance of the Study Pregnancy Induced Hypertension is a rare complication that occur within 42 days after delivery. We have chosen this case for the reason, that we became curious and interested regarding the deeper medical diagnosis for the occurrence of the certain disease. It is very necessary for pregnant women to have knowledge concerning the subject matter for them to be aware and educated about the possible complications that may arise on their pregnancy. Educating them to seek early and regular prenatal care is the best way to prevent complications that may lead to maternal various diseases.

Study of the Subject Matter

What is Pregnancy-induced Hypertension? Pregnancy-induced hypertension is defined as the development of new arterial hypertension in a pregnant woman after 20 weeks gestation . It occurs most often in young women with a first pregnancy. It is more common in twin pregnancies, in women with chronic hypertension, preexisting diabetes, and in women who had PIH in a previous pregnancy

Baby and Placenta

The placenta is also a kind of padding, and maintains a unique environment in which your baby can develop and grow. The placenta forms from the same cells as the embryo and attaches itself to the inner wall of the uterus, growing as your baby grows and the volume of your amniotic fluid increases. When it's finished growing, it is circular and weighs about a pound; when the body expels it after the birth, many women are surprised at its size and weight.

Regulate blood pressure

Direct blood flow

Structure and Functions of Blood Vessels Structure Functions Arteries - The walls (outer structure) of arteries contain smooth muscle fiber that contract and relax under the instructions of the sympathetic nervous system. Transport blood away from the heart; Transport oxygenated blood only (except in the case of the pulmonary artery). Arterioles - Arterioles are tiny branches of arteries that lead to capillaries. These are also under the control of the sympathetic nervous system, and constrict and dilate, to regulate blood flow. Transport blood from arteries to capillaries; Arterioles are the main regulators of blood flow and pressure. Venules - Venules are minute vessels that drain blood from capillaries and into veins. Many venules unite to form a vein. Drains blood from capillaries into veins, for return to the heart

Structure Functions Capillaries - Capillaries are tiny (extremely narrow) blood vessels, of approximately 5-20 micro-metres (one micro-metre = 0.000001metre) diameter. There are networks of capillaries in most of the organs and tissues of the body. These capillaries are supplied with blood by arterioles and drained by venules. Capillary walls are only one cell thick (see diagram), which permits exchanges of material between the contents of the capillary and the surrounding tissue. Function is to supply tissues with components of, and carried by, the blood, and also to remove waste from the surrounding cells ... as opposed to simply moving the blood around the body (in the case of other blood vessels); Exchange of oxygen, carbon dioxide, water, salts, etc., between the blood and the surrounding body tissues. Veins - The walls (outer structure) of veins consist of three layers of tissues that are thinner and less elastic than the corresponding layers of arteries. Veins include valves that aid the return of blood to the heart by preventing blood from flowing in the reverse direction. Transport blood towards the heart; Transport deoxygenated blood only (except in the case of the pulmonary vein).

Comparison between Arteries and Veins Arteries Veins Transport blood away from the heart; Transport blood towards the heart; Carry Oxygenated Blood (except in the case of the Pulmonary Artery); Carry De-oxygenated Blood (except in the case of the Pulmonary Vein); Have relatively narrow lumens Have relatively wide lumens (see diagram above); Have relatively more muscle/elastic tissue; Have relatively less muscle/elastic tissue; Transports blood under higher pressure (than veins); Transports blood under lower pressure (than arteries); Do not have valves (except for the semi-lunar valves of the pulmonary artery and the aorta). Have valves throughout the main veins of the body. These are to prevent blood flowing in the wrong direction, as this could (in theory) return waste materials to the tissues.

 

Narrowing of the blood vessels resulting from contraction of the muscular wall of the vessels, particularly the large arteries, arterioles and veins. The process is the opposite of vasodilation, the widening of blood vessels. When blood vessels constrict, the flow of blood is restricted or slowed, thus, retaining body heat and increasing vascular resistance. Cutaneously, this makes the skin turn paler because less blood reaches the surface. This helps to prevent the radiation of heat. Blood Vessel are tubes which carry blood. Veins are blood vessels which carry blood from the body back to the heart. Arteries are blood vessels which carry blood from the heart to the body. There are a few main blood vessels which connect to different chambers of the heart. The aorta is the largest artery in our body. The left ventricle pumps blood into the aorta which then carries it to the rest of the body through smaller arteries. The pulmonary trunk is the large artery which the right ventricle pumps into. It splits into pulmonary arteries which take the blood to the lungs. The pulmonary veins take blood from the lungs to the left atrium. All the other veins in our body drain into the inferior vena cava (IVC) or the superior vena cava (SVC). These two large veins then take the blood from the rest of the body into the right atrium.

Blood flow through the Heart

Brain Controls the central nervous system (CNS), by way of the cranial nerves and spinal cord, the peripheral nervous system (PNS) and regulates virtually all human activity. Involuntary, or "lower," actions, such as heart rate, respiration, and digestion, are unconsciously governed by the brain, specifically through the autonomic nervous system. Complex, or "higher," mental activity, such as thought, reason, and abstraction, is consciously controlled.

Neurons

Generalized seizures are caused by abnormal electrical activity at multiple locations in the brain and/or over a large area of the brain. This results in loss of consciousness and body stiffening, which is followed by shaking of the arms and legs. Abnormal electrical activity may start in one part of the brain and cause isolated symptoms. Sometimes this abnormal electrical activity spreads through the brain, resulting in a generalized seizure. Seizures can be caused by a specific area of the brain that is injured or inflamed, or they can be due to stress on the brain from a more widespread systemic process, such as severely low blood sugar.
