Sarah is 19-year-old G1P0 at 36 weeks’ gestation. Sarah has been followed weekly in the clinic for mild–moderate preeclampsia. At her clinic appointment today, Sarah’s blood pressure reading was 188/104. She is admitted to the antepartum unit for management of her worsening preeclampsia. You perform her admission assessment and note that her reflexes are brisk, her heart rate is 94, she complains of having an intense headache, and is seeing spots before her eyes. You perform an abdominal assessment and note that she has significant epigastric tenderness.
- What needs to be included in a plan of care for the woman experiencing preeclampsia, eclampsia, and HELLP syndrome?
- Please discuss this as an actual case…meaning, don’t answer #1 with comprehension from book. I want this post to discuss what would the nurse do next, and what orders and plan of care would the nurse expect for Sarah.
