The paper “Preeclampsia Diagnosis and Detection Using the Urinary Markers" is a fascinating example of a research proposal on health sciences & medicine. During the pregnancy period, it is important to determine the blood pressure level for women. In this practice, it has been found that over a tenth of the pregnant women record higher blood pressure than the normal level. Preeclampsia is the most common form of hypertensive disorder during pregnancy that is found to affect 5% of the first time mothers. The research will analyze patients who are confirmed for preeclampsia measure, the difference existing between a normal pregnancy and Preeclampsia and the significance of the test (Carty, 2012).
It is important to consider the diagnosis and detection for early management and treatment as it is cited as a major cause of fetal and maternal morbidity as well as mortality worldwide. Only a few studies have been able to analyze the process of diagnosis and detection of preeclampsia. Even though there are different tests that can be carried out for early detection, little knowledge is known about the impact and strength of urinary markers. Podocyturia is highly specific and a sensitive marker for the preeclampsia among pregnant women. (Chaiworapongsa et al.,2002).
The research will recognize the weaknesses and strengths of Urinary markers and how they can be used in the diagnosis and detection of hypertensive. This research will also identify the importance of early pregnancy, urinary markers that would assist in identifying whether a woman is destined in developing Preeclampsia disorder (Chaiworapongsa et al., 2002).
1. What is the significance of podocyturia urine markers for women diagnosed with preeclampsia?
2. What are the differences between a pregnancy in a normal woman and one who has Preeclampsia?
Preeclampsia is considered a pregnancy-specific disorder in women. It is one of the major causes of mortality, morbidity among maternal and prenatal. Understanding the significance of urine marker test, and differences between a normal woman and Preeclampsia would assist health care professionals in saving a life for the mother and the unborn (Manjareeka & Nanda, 2013). Preeclampsia complications occur in 2-8% of all pregnancies across the world that result in over 63,000 maternal deaths annually. The rate in maternal death is higher in developing countries as compared to developed countries.
However, the condition is a life-threatening occurrence even in the developed world (Saritas & Moeller, 2014). The complications that are linked with the condition include eclampsia, abruption, cerebral hemorrhage, edema in the pulmonary, hepatic failure, Haemolysis Elevated Liver enzymes, Low Platelet count and also acute renal failure (Dekker & Sibai, 1991). It is also a major cause of prenatal deaths among the unborn. It is found that women who had an earlier experience of Preeclampsia complications are likely to experience cardiac attack, cerebrovascular, peripheral arterial diseases and also higher cardiovascular mortality. Previous pregnancy with the condition is found to be the major risk factor though it is believed that Preeclampsia has multivariate risk factors (Bolte, van Geijn & Dekker, 2001).
