2:30 PM EDT: Hyperemesis Gravidarum: Diagnosis, Management, and Treatment
Hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) is described as severe nausea and vomiting during pregnancy, which often results in dehydration, nutritional deficiencies, metabolic imbalances, and debility. Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial to prevent morbidity and mortality, and to promote healthy outcomes for both the mother and baby. Infusion nurses may encounter these patients in multiple settings and have an opportunity to reduce their suffering and prevent serious complications through proper assessment and therapeutic interventions. This session will discuss best practices in the management of HG patients.
Learning Outcomes: After the session, attendees will be able to describe signs of inadequate intervention and ways to improve treatment response in patients with HG.
