This manual is intended to assist health workers in preventing death and serious injury from abortion complications. It outlines the full range of steps in addressing life-threatening complications. It is essential to know what the steps are and to take all possible actions. This document indicates only the general direction of treatment. The guidelines should be adapted on the basis of local conditions, availability of drugs, instruments, training, national standards and regulations (e.g. which category of health workers is authorized to start IV perfusion).
