New Findings On Asthma And Breastfeeding, Obesity And Asthma And Snoring And Pre-eclampsia At ALA/ATS Meeting

re control in these women.

The study of 32 women with severe pre-eclampsia and 40 women with normal pregnancies found that snoring and partial upper airway obstruction occurred in all women with pre-eclampsia, with the highest blood pressures recorded in association with increasing partial airway obstruction.

In 9 of the women with pre-eclampsia, elimination of partial upper airway obstruction with nasal continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) resulted in a marked reduction in blood pressure. CPAP is a breathing mask attached to a machine and is used during sleep to keep the airways open.

Dr. Sullivan noted that pre-eclampsia occurs in nearly 10% of all normal pregnancies, and is the major cause of admission to the hospital during pregnancy and the major cause of infant admission to the intensive care unit. He recommended that women who are admitted to the hospital with pre-eclampsia be assessed for snoring during sleep to determine if they might be helped by CPAP treatment.
