Ensure Pregnant Women With Very High Blood Pressure Get Meds ASAP

You'll need to expedite orders for patients with very high blood pressure (BP) during pregnancy, or severe gestational hypertension.

Women with gestational hypertension have normal BP before pregnancy...increasing to at least 140/90 mmHg after 20 weeks' gestation. It's severe when BP readings reach 160/110 mmHg or higher.

Hypertension during this time is linked to maternal risks, such as stroke...and fetal risks, such as low birth weight.
