TLDR
The aim of this study was to assess the incidence of eclampsia in Finland after the increased use of magnesium sulfate in the late 1990s.
An integrative review of the side effects related to the use of magnesium sulfate for pre-eclampsia and eclampsia management
TLDR
Concerns about safety and toxicity from the use of magnesium sulfate should be mitigated by findings from this integrative review, which indicates a low incidence of the most severe side effects, documented in studies that used a wide variety of standard and modified drug regimens.
Prophylactic magnesium sulphate in prevention of eclampsia in women with severe preeclampsia: randomised controlled trial (PIPES trial)
TLDR
It is shown that short regime of magnesium sulphate using only the loading dose in the prevention of seizure in preeclampsia is an effective alternative to the low-dose Dhaka regime.

TLDR
Magnesium sulphate regimen was effective in control of convulsions in eclampsia and as prophylaxis in imminent eClampsia.

TLDR
Shortened postpartum magnesium sulfate treatment was as effective as traditional 24 h magnesium sulfates in seizure prevention and total complications and warrants further research.

This study is in support of the findings that magnesium sulphate is superior to diazepam in the reduction of maternal morbidity and mortality.

TLDR
Magnesium sulphate more than halves the risk of eclampsia, and probably reduces therisk of maternal death, and does not improve outcome for the baby, in the short term.

TLDR
Retrospective analysis of eclamptic patients was done and incidence of persistent convulsions was significantly lower with magnesium sulphate compared to lytic cocktail and perinatal mortality was similar in both groups.
