US task force proposes expanding high blood pressure screening recommendations during pregnancy

The US Preventive Services Task Force has released a draft recommendation to screen everyone who is pregnant for hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, by monitoring their blood pressure throughout the pregnancy, and the group is calling attention to racial inequities. This recommendation is the first time the task force has proposed expanding these screening recommendations to include all hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, which are on the rise in the United States. As a result, the average person might notice their doctor paying closer attention to their blood pressure measurements during pregnancy, as well as doctors screening for all disorders related to high blood pressure and not just preeclampsia.
