REPORT of the WORKING GROUP on RESEARCH on HYPERTENSION DURING PREGNANCY: NHLBI (Excerpt)

An important distinction exists between the preeclampsia syndrome, recognized when elevated blood pressure occurs for the first time during pregnancy, and preexisting (chronic) hypertension.

REPORT of the WORKING GROUP on RESEARCH on HYPERTENSION DURING PREGNANCY: NHLBI (Excerpt)

Hypertension during pregnancy is categorized as: preeclampsia/eclampsia, gestational hypertension, the continued presence of chronic hypertension, and preeclampsia superimposed upon chronic hypertension. These categories identify disorders with different epidemiological characteristics, pathophysiology, and risk for mother and baby.
