  • Abstract

    A perspective study was conducted in order to assess the impact of pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH) on pregnancy outcome as well as to assess and improve the knowledge towards PIH among pregnant women by effective patient counseling. Fifty pregnant women were taken up for the study of which 32 women had PIH (classified as Group 1) and the remaining 18 had preeclampsia (classified as Group 2). A suitably designed questionnaire consisting of ten questions were given at baseline to assess patients’ knowledge. Then the patients received counseling and patient information leaflets (PILs). Final follow up was made by administering the questionnaire to patients to assess the improvement in their knowledge. Also the cases were followed up till delivery of the child in order to assess pregnancy outcome. At the final follow up, a considerable improvement in patient’s knowledge was observed in both the groups. In Group 1, 6.25 % of patients experienced preterm labour and in Group 2, 61.1 % of patients experienced preterm labour. Perinatal deaths were seen in 3.1 % of Group 1 and 38.8% were seen with Group 2 patients. And intrauterine growth retardation was observed in 3.1 % of patients in Group 1, and 44.5% of Group 2 patients. With both the groups, counseling made the patients understand better about the disease and therapy and thus enhanced compliance.
