- newborns, pregnancy, hypertensive disorders, preeclampsia
- Objective - to examine the health status in the newborns whose mothers suffered from hypertensive disorders in pregnancy. Material and methods. 151 newborns were examined. 42 infants whose mothers had chronic arterial hypertension (AH) were enrolled into I group, 64 infants whose mothers had moderate preeclampsia were enrolled into II group and 45 babies whose mothers had severe preeclampsia were enrolled into III group. Clinical functional examination was performed in neonatal period; clinical techniques of examination, neurosonography and echocardiography were used. Results. Women with preeclampsia especially in severe form more often gave birth to premature infants with extremely low body mass and asphyxia signs. Their babies were characterized by the syndrome of intrauterine development arrest, perinatal affection of central nervous system (cerebral ischemia of II and III stages, intracranial hemorrhage), marked respiratory disorders. Mothers with severe preeclampsia statistically more often gave birth to premature infants. Conclusions. Hypertensive disorders of mothers within pregnancy period unfavorably influenced health status of their newborns.
