Purpose: This study examines differences in adverse maternal outcomes
between asthmatic and non-asthmatic women. Subjects: The data included 7,777 asthmatic and 31,108 non-asthmatic women
who had delivered in 2001. Data were extracted from the National Inpatient
Sample Data Set. Method: Logistic regression was used to analyze the data. Twelve adverse
maternal outcome measures were examined: pre-term labor, hypertensive
disorders of pregnancy (3 measures), gestational diabetes, antepartum
hemorrhage (2 measures), membrane disorders (2 measures), cesarean
section, postpartum hemorrhage, and post-dates pregnancy. The data were
adjusted for maternal age, ethnicity, health insurance status, income
level, and comorbidities. Results: Compared to non-asthmatic women, asthmatic women had a higher
risk of having pre-term labor, pre-eclampsia, transient hypertension of
pregnancy, pregnancy induced hypertension, gestational diabetes, placenta
previa, infection of the amniotic cavity, cesarean section, and post-dates
pregnancy. Women with asthma had a lower risk of having abruptio placenta
and had a comparable risk of having premature rupture of the membranes and
postpartum hemorrhage. Conclusions: In the comparison study of data obtrained from a national
data set, asthmatic women were found to be more likely to have adverse
maternal outcomes than their non-asthmatic counterparts. Further research
is recommended to determine why asthmatic women are more vulnerable to
adverse maternal outcomes. Nurses can help women prevent the complications
of asthma by using their assessment skills to identify those at risk.
Nursing interventions such as educating women regarding the relationship
of asthma and pregnancy, symptom and medication management, and
identification of asthma triggers will assist women to co-manage their
asthma to avoid adverse maternal outcomes.
