mayor repercusión general

English - U.S.
This phrase appears in a patient's hospital admission history, and I just don't know what to do with this 'repercusión' word. Here is the rest of it:

"Ingresa por hiperémesis gravidica, se realiza tratamiento médico con buena evolución. Sin embargo, presenta nueva internación a las [xx] semanas con mayor repercusión general y reducida respuesta al tratamiento, ... " etc.

Is this just saying that the patient is in worse overall condition?

Thanks for your help!

    Yes, that's it.
    Literalmente viene a decir que la hiperemesis gravídica condiciona una mayor afectación general. But yes, all in all it says that the patient is in a worse overall condition.
