Delivery: Toxemia is only relieved or cured with the delivery of the baby. If toxemia develops before the pregnancy is carried to full-term, medications, bedrest and close monitoring may be used to try to keep mother & baby stable until baby is a little more mature. Magnesium sulfate is used to reduce seizure risk prior to and during delivery, and other blood pressure medications may be used as well.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
