Introduction: Pre-eclampsia is a major cause of maternal morbidity and mortality worldwide so it is a major challenge in modern obstetrics for early identification of pregnancy at risk of pre eclampsia and undertake necessary measures for the needful.
Aim: To investigate the level of association of risk factors enclosed in HDP gestosis score with development of preeclampsia and its predictive performance.
Materials and Methods:
Study design: Prospective study
Study period: January 2022 to July 2022
Study subjects: Those who came to antenatal op for routine antenatal check ups
Study area: Government Maternity Hospital Tirupati.
Methodology: For each case a careful history taken early in the first trimester and data was collected and based on obstetric score certain clinical questionnaire, Family history, we scored the individual parameter as 1, 2, 3. Using gestosis score application. This score involves all the existing and emerging risk factors in the pregnant women. Total score was calculated and was analysed. When total score is more than or equal to 3 pregnant women should be marked as‘’ IS AT risk of preeclampsia ‘’
Results: The current study was an attempt to find out the number of pregnant women who are at more risk of developing pre eclampsia by using HDP gestosis Score. In my study out of 100patients 30 patients have got score more than or equal to 3 and 70 patients have got less than 3. In this study AGE more than 35 years and age less than 19 years were significant predictors of preeclampsia.
Conclusion: The results of this study suggest pregnant who got score more than 3 were prevented from preeclampsia because of early identification using HDP gestosis score. It is recommended that health workers should use primi gravida, preeclampsia in previous pregnancy and women with Twin pregnancy as a screening tool for preeclampsia prediction and early diagnosis.
