How does the birth chart help the doctors understand a patient’s symptoms?
- by admin
In a series of studies, researchers at Yale University and Duke University have been able to provide clinicians with an explanation of why a woman’s blood pressure may rise during labor.
In this case, the blood pressure rose after a miscarriage.
When the women were later examined, their blood pressure was still elevated.
This study may help physicians and other healthcare workers better understand why a pregnancy progresses in different ways.
The researchers were interested in a group of women who were experiencing a high degree of symptoms, but who did not have complications of pregnancy, like preeclampsia or hypertension.
In these patients, the doctors could interpret symptoms to show that their pregnancy was progressing slowly or that their symptoms had not yet been fully understood.
The patients were also asked to recall whether the symptoms had been caused by other factors.
They were also given a birth chart that they were asked to interpret.
The chart allowed doctors to compare blood pressure between two women, which is important because the chart is usually used to determine if there are any problems with the fetus.
“Our findings provide insight into the underlying mechanisms that lead to these maternal blood pressure changes,” said the study’s first author, Dr. Sarah Kost, a reproductive endocrinologist at Duke University School of Medicine.
The study is the first to analyze the birth charts of women with preeclamptic conditions, such as preeclasias, hypertension, and gestational diabetes mellitus.
The data revealed that the women with the highest blood pressure were more likely to have had preeclamic symptoms before the pregnancy and more likely than women without preeclamsias to have preeclamasias after the pregnancy.
“These findings suggest that preeclameous hypertension in the preterm birth cohort may be a cause of elevated blood pressure during pregnancy,” said Kost.
The authors noted that their study was observational, so the study cannot prove that preellampsia is the cause of the increased blood pressure.
However, the findings suggest some potential mechanisms for preellamptidase deficiency.
For example, the authors note that preelampsia may increase blood pressure in pregnancy because preellamsia may result from increased activity in the hypothalamus, which controls blood pressure, and also may increase the activity of endothelial cells in the uterus.
The research is published in the journal PLOS ONE.
