PIH- Pregnancy induced hypertension
preeclampisa-higher BP than in PIH, kydned dysfunction-proteinuria, weight gain, generlaized edema.
Eclampsia-Even higher BP, grand mal seizures or coma.
Placenta previa- when the placenta is implanted in the lower uterus o over the cervical os.
Abruptio Placentae- premature seperation of the placenta.
Thrombophlebitis and thromboembolism- clot formation in the veins of the legs or pelvis and potential for embolization if clot breaks free.
Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC)- complication of abruptio placentae and preeclampsia. Increased activation of clotting mechanisms, results in diffuse blood clots and excessive consumption of clotting factors.
1st pregnancy usually no problems, unless previous exposure through transfusion.
During subsequent pregnancies, the maternal Rh antibodies cross the plactenta, causing an antigen-antibody reaction in the fetus, hemolysis. Low hemoglobin, heart failure, death, jaundice, and potential neurologic damage to fetus.
