Gupteswar Mishra, Sambit Kumar Mohanty, Prabir Kumar Biswal.


Abstract
Objective: Eclampsia is characterized by the presence of one or more convulsions together with a preeclampsia condition. A significant contributor to maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality is eclampsia. The emerging world is likewise seriously concerned about it. Analyzing eclampsia patients and assessing maternal and perinatal outcomes were the objectives.
Method: The study was conducted at Hi-Tech Medical College & Hospital, Bhubaneswar for one year. The study enrolled parents who had eclampsia and associated complications at 23 weeks of pregnancy. Complete obstetrical investigations with results for the mother and the baby were recorded.
Results: At this facility, the annual prevalence of eclampsia was 1.1%, accounting for 140 cases during the study period. The vast majority of the 140 cases (93%) were sent to our center from first and second referral units dispersed over a number of minor districts nearby. Nearly three-fourths of the cases were primigravida, and the average age of the cases at presentation was 23.8±3.97 years. Nearly 40% of cases experienced obstetrical complications brought on by eclampsia, and nearly 37.2% of cases had medical complications. At our facility, 11% of mothers of eclampsia babies died.
Conclusion: The occurrence of this dangerous condition in pregnancy can be decreased by providing sufficient antenatal care and detecting pre-eclampsia syndrome early on. These ladies can find optimum management if the healthcare professionals in the outlying centers promptly refer them.

Key words: Maternal mortality, perinatal loss, eclampsia, preeclampsia, and magnesium sulfate
