Introduction: Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy is one of the leading causes of fetomaternal mortality and affecting 10% of all pregnancies.
Materials and Methods: A prospective interventional study was conducted on 140 patients from January 2017 to January 2019 and comparision was made among the three different magnesium sulfate regimens.78 patients with severe preeclampsia and 62 patients with eclampsia were randomly allocated in 3 groups and were followed up to delivery to evaluate the fetomaternal outcome. Then the results were compared and analysed.
Results: Statistically higher incidence of signs of impending toxicity such as loss of patellar reflex, oliguria, respiratory rate depression were more in group 1(Pritchard) as compared to other groups. There were no significant differences in other measures of feto-maternal complications.
Conclusion: As compared to Pritchard, Zuspan and Dhaka (Low dose regimens) have similar efficacy in controlling and prevention of convulsions & potentially have less side effects.
