Hyperemesis Gravidarum: Preventing Morbidity and Mortality
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.
