Preeclampsia complicates 2 to 4% of all pregnancies and accounts for about 46,000 maternal deaths and 500,000 fetal or newborn deaths each year. Antihypertensive agents and magnesium sulfate can help control the systemic manifestations of preeclampsia, which is usually resolved by delivery of the placenta.
