Answer

Answer

When initially evaluating a patient with eclampsia, become familiar with the level of care that the medical center can offer the patient, as eclampsia clearly poses a risk of considerable maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality. Patients with eclampsia may benefit from management at a tertiary care center, a high-risk obstetric facility that provides neonatal and maternal intensive care.
