SMB Amnion Hook is used for artificially rupturing the membranes of the amniotic sac to release the amniotic fluid for childbirth.
An amniotic is performed by an obstetrician in a labour or delivery room, with the patient lying on a hospital bed. In some cases, the patient is asked to stay in a semi-sitting position to minimize cord compression and ensure a good oxygen supply to the fetus.
To perform Amniotomy, A thin, plastic tool called an Amniotic Hook is used. To break the amniotic sac, the healthcare provider inserts the Amniotic Hook through the patient’s vagina. Post-identifying the amniotic sac, which seems like a water bag, a rupture is made to its outer membrane to channel its fluid outside.
The shelf life of SMB Amnion Hook is up to five years.
