Abstract

Preeclampsia is a combination of high blood pressure and protein urea. Therefore, blood pressure measurements are important because their accuracy is associated with correct diagnosis of preeclampsia. Blood pressure is generally used for diagnosis and treatment and is measured in a medical environment. However, in nonpregnant adults, ambulatory and home blood pressure measurements have recently been recommended for monitoring blood pressure, home blood pressure should be a priority when office and home blood pressure values differ. The beneficial evidence of measuring blood pressure outside the office setting in pregnant women has been recently increasing. Out-of-office blood pressure may improve the accuracy of classifying hypertension during pregnancy. Classification may aid in identifying novel prognostic factors and improving treatment.
