Loop diuretics have been investigated for managing postpartum hypertensive disorders, but there is currently insufficient clinical evidence pointing to any single agent. This study aims to compare blood pressure (BP) outcomes for patients with gestational hypertensive disorders receiving labetalol alone versus labetalol + furosemide during postpartum hospital stay. The primary aim was to learn if loop diuretic incorporation in conjunction with labetalol could lower the need for additional anti-hypertensive agents.
