Retrospective Cohort Study: Clinical Presentation and Outcomes of Pre-eclampsia and Eclampsia at Kenyatta National Hospital Nairobi, Kenya

Ending Eclampsia, February 2018

The profiles and outcomes of women with early onset of pre-eclampsia (compared to late onset) suggest that seriousness of morbidity increases with earlier onset.

Early detection, continuous monitoring, identification of risk factors, and prompt referral are critical in mitigating the serious consequences of pre-eclampsia and eclampsia.
