Miscarriages usually occur spontaneously and result in the foetus being delivered before the 20th week as a result of, abdominal trauma, increased stresss, infection (including some severe UTIs), maternal stress or severe systemic medical complication, and in some circumstance, for no apparent reason whatsoever.
As a paramedic I treat the following complications as a result of a miscarriage:
1. Support to the patient.
2. Treat hypovolaemia if present
3. Pain management
4. Atropine if the patient has become bradycardic as a result of vagal stimulation during the miscarriage.
