What hematological values change during pregnancy?

The major hematological changes during pregnancy are physiologic anemia, neutrophilia, mild thrombocytopenia, increased procoagulant factors, and diminished fibrinolysis.

What is the diagnostic criteria for hypertension with pregnancy?

Blood pressure criteria for hypertension in pregnancy are systolic blood pressure ≥140 mmHg, diastolic blood pressure ≥90 mmHg, or both. Severe hypertension is defined as systolic blood pressure ≥160 mmHg, diastolic blood pressure ≥110 mmHg, or both [3].

What is the most common hematologic abnormality in preeclampsia?

Iron deficiency. The most frequent hematologic complication during pregnancy is anemia.

What are the parameters for preeclampsia?

Preeclampsia/eclampsia is characterized by a BP of 140/90 mm Hg or greater after 20 weeks’ gestation in a women with previously normal BP and who have proteinuria (≥0.3 g protein in 24-h urine specimen).

Why is hematocrit low during pregnancy?

Although red blood cell (RBC) mass increases during pregnancy, plasma volume increases more, resulting in a relative anemia. This results in a physiologically lowered hemoglobin (Hb) level, hematocrit (Hct) value, and RBC count, but it has no effect on the mean corpuscular volume (MCV).

What labs do they check for preeclampsia?

If you have high blood pressure, your health care provider will order additional tests to check for other signs of preeclampsia:

  • Blood tests. A blood sample analyzed in a lab can show how well the liver and kidneys are working.
  • Urine analysis.
  • Fetal ultrasound.
  • Nonstress test or biophysical profile.

What are the 4 types of hypertension in pregnancy?

What are the types of high blood pressure during pregnancy?

  • Gestational hypertension. Women with gestational hypertension have high blood pressure that develops after 20 weeks of pregnancy.
  • Chronic hypertension.
  • Chronic hypertension with superimposed preeclampsia.
  • Preeclampsia.

Does LDH increase in pregnancy?

LDH is an intracellular enzyme and its level is increased in these women due to cellular death.

What are hematological complications?

Hematologic Malignancies Symptoms can be very non-specific and can include fever, fatigue and bruising, but patients can also face life-threatening complications such as disseminated intravascular coagulopathy, leukostasis, and severe infections.

What blood pressure parameters are diagnostic of preeclampsia with severe features?

Women with gestational hypertension with severe range blood pressures (a systolic blood pressure of 160 mm Hg or higher, or diastolic blood pressure of 110 mm Hg or higher) should be diagnosed with preeclampsia with severe features.
