Abstract:

The prevalence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in pregnancy, both diagnosed and previously unknown, is rising, and CVD is a leading cause of maternal morbidity and mortality. Historically, women of child-bearing potential have been underrepresented in research, leading to lasting knowledge gaps in the cardiovascular care of pregnant and lactating women. Despite these limitations, clinicians should be familiar with the safety of frequently used diagnostic and therapeutic interventions to adequately care for this at-risk population. This review, the fourth of a 5-part series, provides evidence-based recommendations regarding the use of common cardiovascular diagnostic tests and medications in pregnant and lactating women.
