Integrated Management of Pregnancy and Childbirth—Pregnancy, Childbirth, Postpartum and Newborn Care: A guide for Essential Practice

World Health Organization, 2015

This guide is a tool for clinical decision-making. The content is presented in a frame work of coloured flow charts supported by information and treatment charts which give further details of care. The framework is based on a syndromic approach whereby the skilled attendant identifies a limited number of key clinical signs and symptoms, enabling her/him to classify the condition according to severity and give appropriate treatment. Severity is marked in colour: red for emergencies, yellow for less urgent conditions which nevertheless need attention, and green for normal care.
