dc.description.abstract Background: -Preeclampsia is a leading cause of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality affecting 5-10% of pregnancies worldwide. Preeclampsia is among the top causes of deaths in Ethiopia. Despite the severity of preeclampsia, there is limited on preeclampsia in the study area. Considering this gap, the researcher aimed to study assesses the determinants of preeclampsia in Debre Berhan Referral Hospital. Methods and materials: - An unmatched case-control study design was employed on this study. A total of 291participants were participated in this study. Of which 97 were cases and 194 were controls. Cases are mothers with preeclampsia whereas controls are mothers without preeclampsia. Cases and controls were selected by systematic random sampling techniques from the maternity registration book. Double population proportions formula with a 2:1 control to case ratio was used to calculate sample size with 95% confidence interval and 80% power. The data were entered to EPNFO 7.1 for checking internal consistency and cleaning and then analyzed by using SPSS version 21. Descriptive statistics was carried out to present the frequency distribution of cases and controls. Bivariate and multivariate logistic regression analysis were run to identify the determinants of preeclampsia and p-value of <0.05 was considered as statistically significant. Result: - Of the total 291 participants, 97 were cases and 194 controls. From the total cases included in this study 68 (70.1%) were referrals from other health facilities. Regarding referral, women who came by referral were 22% less likely to be preeclampsia case than nonreferral [AOR=0.22, 95% CI (0.052, 0.907). The finding of this study also revealed that occupation (housewife) (AOR=8.39(1.037-67.96), primigravida (AOR: 2.68, 95% CI: 1.38, 5.22), history of diabetics mellitus (AOR=5.15, 95% CI 1.544-17.18) were the determinants of preeclampsia. Conclusion: -occupation, primigravida and history of Diabetes Mellitus were the determinants of preeclampsia. Different stakeholders should focus on home related factors. Besides, health care providers should have integrated preeclampsia screening at delivery settings. en_US
