Should mgso4 be used in cases of eclampsia but having low blood pressure

Try to find out cause of Hypotension ( ecg, echo ) if it is not a complication of disease then think of atypical eclampsia & if then use. Also rule out other causes of convulsions.

Eclampsia criteria needs albiminuria, no albumin then treat as epilepsy, mgso4can be used in either, but needs urgent cardiac evaluation and CT or MRI, and evaluate for epilepsy

MgSo4 is used in Eclampsia and high blood pressure is one cause of Eclampsia

Eclampsia is preeclampsia with convulsion...for convulsion control mgso4 used...also it has vasodilator affect dat reduses bp...if bp remains high antihypertensive drug added
