This is a case of Mrs. I.R, a 21 years old, female a Mrs. primi gravida, who lives in Polomolok, South Cotabato and was admitted last July 6, 2009 in South Cotabato Provincial Hospital w/ the diagnosis of PU, 39 1/7 weeks AOG, CIL, G1P1 and after 1 day of delivery she was diagnosed w/ post partum preeclampsia w/ a BP of 150/100 mmHg under 150/ the service of Dr. Vencer. Medical Management given. Dr. Vencer. given. Preeclampsia is a disorder of widespread vascular endothelial malfunction that occurs beyond the 20th week 20th of gestation. It is characterized by increased blood pressure gestation. (BP) in an individual who was normotensive prior to the pregnancy, and proteinuria or excessive edema. Although edema. women with preexisting hypertension may also develop preeclampsia, hypertension in preeclampsia in the usually normotensive patient is defined by a systolic BP greater than 140 mm Hg and diastolic BP greater than 90 mm Hg on two successive measurements 4-6 hours apart. apart. 

Diagnostic criteria for severe preeclampsia include at least one of the following: systolic BP greater than 160 mm Hg or diastolic BP following: greater than 110 mm Hg on two occasions 6 hours apart with the patient at bed rest; proteinuria, oliguria; cerebral or visual rest; oliguria; disturbance; disturbance; pulmonary edema or cyanosis; abdominal pain; cyanosis; pain; impaired liver function; thrombocytopenia; or decreased fetal growth. function; thrombocytopenia; growth. In general population, data are difficult to estimate however Preeclampsia occurs in approximately 5% of all pregnancies internationally. internationally.

DEVELOPMENTAL DATA Name of patient: Mrs. I.R. Age: 21y.o According to Havighurst·s Developmental data Task Theory Stage of the patient: Early Adulthood Theory: Development task Theory

Description of the theory:  

Robert Havighurst believed that learning is basic to life that people continue to learn throughout life. He described growth and developmental as accruing during six ages, each associated with 6-10 tasks to be learned. Havighurst 6promoted the concept of developmental tasks in the 1950·s. he studied human behavior in terms of developmental tasks like; skills or approved behavior pattern, which arise at or about a certain period of life. In addition, he noted that the successful achievement will lead to happiness while failure leads to unhappiness and difficulty with later tasks. Havighurst·s developmental tasks, provides a framework that the nurse to evaluate a person·s general accomplishments. However, some nurses find that the broad categories limit its usefulness as a tool in assessing specific accomplishments, particularly those infant and childhood.
