ALiEMCards: Preeclampsia

Preeclampsia is on a spectrum of pregnancy related illness that includes eclampsia and HELLP syndrome (Hemolysis, Elevated Liver enzymes, Low Platelets – debate exists about if this is a separate entity altogether). It carries a high mortality for both mom and baby, and can lead to a number of complications including pulmonary edema, hepatic rupture, placental abruption, and seizures (eclampsia). Created by Dr. Sam Ashoo, ALiEM Cards: Preeclampsia gives you a rapid review of its presentation, criteria, and management.
