Abstract

Aims and objectives: To study the serum electrolytes of neonates born to pre-eclampsia and eclampsia mothers in rural tertiary care hospital.

Materials and methods: This hospital-based descriptive cross-sectional study, conducted at Dr. Vitthalrao Vikhe Patil Pravara Rural Hospital over a year from September 2022 to September 2023, focused on neonates born to mothers with pre-eclampsia and eclampsia. Excluded were babies with congenital malformations and those born to mothers with other health issues.

 Results: Three fourth of the PIH mothers in our study were pre-eclampsia while one fourth were eclampsia. In the present study 65% babies were preterm , 34% babies were more than 37 weeks. In pre-eclampsia mean value of magnesium was 2.9 ±0.72. In eclampsia mean value of magnesium was 4.17 ±1.38. There is highly statistically significant difference between pre-eclampsia and eclampsia.

Conclusion: Babies delivered to hypertensive mothers are more likely to experience a variety of difficulties, it is important to closely monitor

these infants in an effort to reduce morbidity and promote better growth, development, and survival.
