In brief: It doesn't
A biophysical profile (bpp) is not performed to help gestational hypertensive disorders, but to assess fetal well being.
The bpp is an evaluation for signs of uteroplacental insufficiency, a complication of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. If there are signs of deterioration in the fetal status, early delivery may be indicated.
