UTMD's specialized obstetric and perinatology devices are used for amniotomy, cervical ripening, intrauterine pressure monitoring & amnioinfusion, vacuum assisted delivery, post partum hemorrhage control, umbilical cord management and oral and nasal meconium aspiration.
In the active phase of labor, particularly for nulliparous patients with epidural anesthesia, effectively titrating the oxytocin dose is likely key to avoiding a C-section delivery. Reliably and accurately monitoring contraction intensity including peak pressures and resting tones, in addition to the frequency and duration of contractions, is the aim of Intran® Plus, a single-use in utero transducer-tipped IUP catheter, the "Gold Standard" in IUP monitoring since 1991.+ Learn more
The artificial rupture of uterine membranes (AROM) is a procedure intended to help induce active labor and facilitate timely delivery. The AROM-Cot® finger cot is an easily controlled and nondisruptive tool for AROM.
A systematic, stepwise approach to timely controlling postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) includes the use of a balloon tamponade which can be easily and rapidly deployed, with the ability to monitor for further bleeding after the catheter is placed. BT-Cath® with Easyfill is optimal when a single clinician is attending or when a closed infusion system is desired.
UTMD's CVX-Ripe® catheter utilizes two adjacent conical silicone balloons intended to allow gently applied pressure to both the internal and external os while simultaneaously applying pressure within the cervical canal. The objective of this design is to provide a michanical means of ripening the cervix of pregnant patients at term gestation that will reduce the time needed to allow induction, and to reduce the total time of active labor needed to achieve a successful vaginal delivery.
Operative vaginal delivery remains an important component of modern labor management, according to ACOG. UTMD's CMI Vacuum-Assisted Delivery (VAD) systems, which are designed to provide maximum mother and baby safety, have been in use for more than 20 years.
Intrapartum external fetal monitoring involves the use of elastic belts or bands wrapped around the mother's abdomen that hold doppler and tocodynamometer monitoring devices against the skin to detect the fetal heart rate and to track the frequency and duration of uterine contractions.
UTMD's Cordguard™ is a unified system for postpartum umbilical cord clamping, cutting and blood collection within a short time span. The device provides clean neonatal blood samples while minimizing clinical exposure to blood.
Muc-X™ meconium aspirators are used to suction bodily fluids from the nose and mouth in order to reduce the potential for the development of respiratory problems. The smooth beveled design of the Muc-X™ suctioning tip is gentle on the oral and nasal tissues of the neonate, and the DeLee style design eliminates risk of direct oral contact with meconium.+ Learn more
