Table 1 Women with hypertensive disorders (HD) and non HD among those with severe maternal morbidity or death and their correspondent health indicators

From: Maternal near miss and death among women with severe hypertensive disorders: a Brazilian multicenter surveillance study

Condition PLTC NM MD Total
n (%) n (%) n (%) N (%)
HD 6315 (73) 349 (45) 42 (30) 6706 (70)
Non HD 2330 (27) 421 (55) 98 (70) 2849 (30)
Total 8645 (100) 770 (100) 140 (100) 9555 (100)
  1. PLTC: Potentially life-threatening condition; NM: near miss; MD: maternal death; Live births = 82,144.
  2. MNM prevalence ratio for HD = 4.2 NM/1000LB (for non HD = 5.1 NM/1000LB).
  3. Severe Maternal Outcome Ratio (SMOR) for HD = 4.76/1000LB (for non HD = 6.32/1000LB).
  4. Maternal near miss: Maternal death ratio for HD = 8.3NM:1MD (for non HD = 4.3NM:1MD).
  5. Mortality index for HD = 42MD/391 = 10.7% (for non HD = 18.9%).
  6. MMR = 51.1MD/100.000 LB for HD (for non HD = 119.3 MD/100.000LB).
