Pregnancy-induced hypertension - Definition


Definition


Pregnancy-induced hypertension, or PIH, is one of the main complications of pregnancy. This condition is characterized by a resting hypertension above 140 over 90 in usually normotensive women. The complications of PIH during pregnancy can be fatal (eclampsia, kidney failure). Complications for the fetus include premature birth triggered by life-saving treatments for the mother or child and intra-uterinal impaired development that can cause fetal death.
