• Trimester
  • Angiotensin II (A-II) sensitivity was determined in 23 nonmedicated nulliparas in the third trimester of pregnancy, before and after a 7- to 10-day period of bed rest and a strongly sodium-restricted diet (maximal 20 mmol Na+/24 hr). (biomedsearch.com)

  • The studies and reviews span analytic attempts to define the concept more strictly, descriptive efforts to measure and quantify new indicators (prevalence) of near-miss for different geographical regions etc. explanatory efforts of the leading cause for morbidity The World Health Organization defines a maternal near-miss case as "a woman who nearly died but survived a complication that occurred during pregnancy, childbirth or within 42 days of termination of pregnancy.

  • disease
  • None of the women had been diagnosed with cardiovascular disease before pregnancy. (bio-medicine.org)
  • These same conditions are also independent risk factors for cardiovascular disease. (bio-medicine.org)
  • Researchers have developed a more accurate way to predict the risk of developing cardiovascular disease among women, according// to a study in the issue of JAMA. (bio-medicine.org)
  • The authors note that although understanding of cardiovascular disease has changed dramatically in the past half-century, the algorithms (predictive models) for women are largely unchanged from those recommended 40 years ago. (bio-medicine.org)
  • In these analyses, large proportions of women with 10-year risk estimates of 5 percent to less than 10 percent or of 10 percent to less than 20 percent based on current ATP-III (Adult Treatment Panel III) risk scores were reclassified at either higher or lower risk of total cardiovascular disease when either of the new algorithms was used," the researchers found.

  • Abnormalities
  • The higher rate in the group of pure 45,X monosomy is primarily due to a difference in the rate of aortic valve abnormalities and coarctation of the aorta, the two most common cardiovascular malformations. (wikipedia.org)
  • cardiac
  • The expected increase in intravascular volume and cardiac output during pregnancy is poorly tolerated by patients with primary dilated cardiomyopathy and may result in cardiac failure. (biomedsearch.com)
  • CONCLUSION: Pregnancy in patients with primary dilated cardiomyopathy can be extremely hazardous, resulting in cardiac failure and even death. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Eclampsia
  • Pregnancy is characterized by a state of heightened coagulation, which is exacerbated in pathological conditions such as pre-eclampsia (PET). (queensu.ca)
  • When delivery becomes recommended depends on how severe the pre-eclampsia and how far along in pregnancy a person is. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, because swelling is a common occurrence in pregnancy, its utility as a distinguishing factor in pre-eclampsia is not high. (wikipedia.org)
  • In general, none of the signs of pre-eclampsia are specific, and even convulsions in pregnancy are more likely to have causes other than eclampsia in modern practice. (wikipedia.org)
  • Practice
  • A joint practice committee of the FCOG, the French Cardiologic Society, the French Chest and Cardiovascular Surgery Society, the French Society of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care, the French Endocrine Society, the French study group for oocyte donation, and the Biomedicine Agency defined the exact questions to be put to the experts, chose these experts, followed them up and drafted the synthesis of recommendations resulting from their work.
