Acute Trust Management of Mild Pregnancy Induced Hypertension (CA10)

Mr Kim Hinshaw FRCOG Consultant Obstetrician & Gynaecologist Director of Research & Innovation and 2014 Simple Telehealth Clinical Advocate winner describes the implementation of Flo to support the management of mild pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH) for an asymptomatic patient where the possibility of exacerbation of condition to be missed was heightened. The case study describes how Flo was used to monitor the patient’s blood pressure whilst at home, with request to contact the hospital immediately if the patient’s systolic BP reached >150. Flo also alerted the obstetric bleep to facilitate prompt hospital admission and timely induction of labour and safe delivery for mother and baby.
