Early Detection and Intervention of Postpartum Preeclampsia
A Case Study in Remote Monitoring for Obstetrical Care
Preeclampsia is one of the leading and fastest growing causes of maternal mortality in the US. In some cases, elevated blood pressure is the only indication of a dangerous condition like preeclampsia. If a woman is only having her BP taken at her regularly scheduled prenatal visits, it is highly possible that high blood pressure could go undetected. The use of remote tools can extend the reach of physicians to patients during the postpartum period and help reduce mortality rates.
"I am oh-so appreciative to the team and creators of Babyscripts, and I recommend any pregnant woman to use the Babyscripts app. For me it was absolutely life-changing; I felt like it really did save my life in a sense, and also most importantly the health of my baby.”
