 The Hypertension in pregnancy can be termed syndromes Hypertensive of Gestation, where we have pre-eclampsia as the most serious, which can compromise the life of the pregnant woman and the fetus / newborn, leading to admission to the Intensive Care Unit for these can receive more specific care and prevent the occurrence of other complications. This study aimed to investigate risk factors that support for the development of pre-eclampsia and its admission to the ICU. This is an integrative literature review study with work resulting from scientific productions, and an exploratory descriptive nature, which is within the qualitative analysis. It was noticed that there is much to be studied and clarified regarding Preeclampsia because the jobs available in the literature showed a deficit of knowledge and shock information about the causes and care where these are often only provided when it is already the most serious stage, and may be a consequence of poor prenatal care. Are remarkable advances that the health system has been presenting in the reduction of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality rates, however there is still much to be revised as a way of welcoming and working with this audience, as much see a mechanized service, as the prevention of pre-eclampsia should be accepted by pregnant women as an essential care to be performed during pregnancy.
