Complications In Pregnancy Part I: Early Pregnancy

June 2007

Abstract

Pregnancy-related complications are, unfortunately, a common experience for women and often require an evaluation at the local ED. Due to the very  nature of pregnancy, these are always potentially high risk situations because they impact not only the mother but also the embryo or fetus. This review focuses on the common emergencies that are unique to the pregnant patient. Pregnancy-related complications may be classified as either early or late. Early complications usually occur in the first trimester prior to gestational viability. Late complications occur primarily in the third trimester and impact the fetus and the mother since the fetus is typically viable. Common medical problems may impact and affect the course of a pregnancy.
