21st INRC [Research Presentation] Purpose: A cross-sectional and comparative research design with convenience sampling was used to recruit pregnant women from prenatal clinics in southern Taiwan to examine the differences in hCG, estradiol, IL-8, and birth outcomes between women with hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) and mild nausea and vomiting (NV) during pregnancy. Methods: To examine the hCG, estradiol, and IL-8, every pregnant woman was collected the biochemical data follow her prenatal clinical routine. In addition, two measurement instruments were used in this study: the Demographic Inventory (DI), and the Index of Nausea, Vomiting, and Retching (INVR). Data were analyzed using SPSS packages for Windows, including descriptive statistics, independent-samples t test, and Chi squared test. Results: A total of 102 pregnant women were recruited in this study and divided into two groups: HG (40 subjects) and mild NV (62 subjects) groups. The average age of these participants was 30.86 +/- 3.61 years. Most women (43.2%) were educated at undergraduate level, most (79.7%) were employed, and 46.1% were primigravida. The results of independent-samples t test showed that women with HG (20.50 +/- 2.16) had significantly lower body mass index than women with mild NV (22.04 +/- 2.86) (p = .006). A Chi squared test indicated that women with HG had significantly higher ratio of birth complications than mild NV (p = .029). The levels of hCG (95.38x103 +/- 42.73x103 vs. 99.93x103 +/- 43.74x103), estradiol (13.48x102 +/- 13.40x102 vs. 12.70x102 +/- 12.24x102) and IL8 (36.01 +/- 33.58 vs. 51.08 +/- 49.34) for the two groups were different but not significant. The birth weights (3.04 +/- .44 vs. 2.97 +/- .46 kg) and weeks gestation (38.05 +/- 1.24 vs. 37.80 +/- 2.00) of the two groups were also not significantly different. Conclusion: The findings of this study provided an advanced understanding of the knowledge relative to hCG, estradiol, IL-8, and birth outcomes between women with HG and mild NV during pregnancy.
