Abstract:

Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) is described as severe nausea and vomiting during pregnancy, which often results in dehydration, nutritional deficiencies, metabolic imbalances, and debility. Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial to prevent serious morbidity and mortality, and to promote healthy outcomes for both the mother and baby. Obstetrical clinicians can reduce maternal suffering and prevent serious complications through early and accurate assessment followed by effective therapeutic interventions. This session will discuss best practices in the assessment and management of HG patients.

Objective 1: Accurately identify & assess the HG severity

Objective 2: Assess mothers at risk of severe symptoms

Objective 3: Predict possible complications of HG

Objective 4: Prepare appropriate proactive interventions

Objective 5: Compile resources for management of HG
