Pulmonary disorders complicating pregnancy.

PMID:  1484655     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The pulmonary physiologic changes associated with pregnancy increase oxygen transport to the developing fetus. Because of these changes, the fetus is allowed an extra measure of protection against insults that would decrease blood or oxygen flow to the uteroplacental unit. The goal of treating a patient with pulmonary disease in pregnancy should be to maximize pulmonary function throughout gestation. Experts in pulmonary disease should be readily available for patients with significant pulmonary disorders or worsening disease during pregnancy. Pregnancy affords all providers the opportunity to address the major respiratory health problem in the United States, which is smoking. This concerns not only the patient's personal health, but also that of her unborn offspring.
