The present chapter includes a revision of a previous chapter named “Antihypertensive Treatment” in the fourth edition (Chapter 19), by Jason G. Umans, Edgardo J. Abalos, and F. Gary Cunningham. Jason Umans remains as an important contributor to this extended chapter, which now has added three new coauthors from clinical Obstetrics and Obstetric Medicine. The new chapter has also integrated and updated important aspects of the previous chapter named “Clinical Management” (Chapter 20) by James M. Alexander and F. Gary Cunningham. By combining these two much visited clinical chapters, the authors have integrated the principles of antihypertensive therapies and other important clinical management aspects for women with hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. This new chapter summarizes the current knowledge and the need for further studies to optimize maternal and offspring health and well-being, both short and long term.
