Ria is 9 months pregnant and have arrived for her gynaecologist consultation. Her due date is approaching and she wants to clear her apprehensions regarding different equipments used and its safety during delivery. Let’s take a look at the discussion between Ria and her doctor.
A forceps delivery is a type of vaginal assisted delivery, which is occasionally required during vaginal childbirth. A forceps delivery occurs when a health care provider applies forceps to the baby's head — an instrument shaped like a pair of large spoons or salad tongs — to help guide the baby out of the birth canal.
A vacuum extraction, also known as vacuum-assisted delivery, is a procedure that is sometimes used during vaginal childbirth. During a vacuum-assisted vaginal delivery, a health care provider applies a vacuum cup to the baby's head (a soft or rigid cup with a handle and a vacuum pump) to help guide the baby out of the birth canal. This is usually done while the mother is pushing during a contraction.
Ria now enquire about the disadvantages and risks of forceps delivery to her doctor. Check what her doctor has to say.
The mother may be exposed to the following risks:
It's typical to have bleeding after giving birth. You may experience some heavy bleeding just after forceps delivery. This will gradually subside in the following days.
Damage to the muscles, nerves, or other tissues of the pelvic floor, which alters their function and leads to pelvic floor weakening, is known as maternal pelvic floor trauma. Pelvic floor trauma is more common in delivery aided with forceps than in the case of vacuum assisted delivery.
Urinary incontinence (leaking urine) can occur after childbirth, and it is more frequent following a forceps delivery. Pelvic floor exercises are useful for this problem.
Blood clots in the veins of your legs and pelvis (deep vein thrombosis) are more likely to form during pregnancy, and this risk is increased after a forceps delivery. Staying as mobile as possible after giving delivery can help reduce this risk.
Ria is further worried about the risks for the baby and her doctor explains as follows to her question-
Are there any risks for the baby?
Forceps delivery may leave a mark on the baby’s face and usually disappears within 24–48 hours. Also it may leave small cuts on the baby’s face or scalp, which will heal quickly.
Having discussed the disadvantages of forceps delivery we can say that the vacuum option is more frequently used than forceps. This is because it normally doesn’t require as much anesthesia or pain medications for its use. This option is less risky for both the baby and the mother.
To make her feel relieved the doctor introduces a new product Ciyan- Power Vacuum Grasp which is used for vacuum-assisted delivery which has numerous benefits over traditional devices.
Ciyan- Power Vacuum Grasp is a complete vacuum-assisted delivery system. This advanced new device is applied for the Indian patent and can be used for vaginal and C-section surgery. It consists of a self-powered reusable vacuum generator handle and a single-use disposable vacuum cup.
Our device is very cost effective because it consists of a reusable self-powered vacuum generator handle with a built-in rechargeable battery and a disposable single-use vacuum cup. The powered vacuum pump maintains a constant vacuum pressure of 580mmhg for the fetus’s safety.
1) Versatile - The handle can be used for different fetal head positions.
2) Flexible stem - For flexion point placement.
3) Disposable - The vacuum cup is disposable and enables convenience and safety.
4) Low cup profile - This enables ease of insertion
5) Complete control - A single operator can control the device without further assistance.
Ria now has a confusion about how Ciyan - Power Vacuum Grasp will be used if need arises.Doctor explains the procedure as follows -
Upon this explanation Ria is finally relieved and asks her doctor to use Ciyan - Power Vacuum Grasp for the delivery if need arises.
Undoubtedly the Complete Vacuum Assisted Delivery System is a great boon for the medical field due to its salient features. Ciyan- Power Vacuum Grasp will set new standards for vacuum-assisted deliveries and will enable vacuum extraction easily and safely. The safety of mother and baby is our top priority and hence we have designed this device after rigorous research and analysis. Be assured about the quality and applicability of the device. This device is a breakthrough invention and enables safe delivery procedure to numerous patients like Ria.
