A disposable umbilical cord clamp is a medical device used in childbirth to secure and seal the umbilical cord shortly after a baby is born. It is an important tool to prevent bleeding and infection at the point where the umbilical cord is cut, separating the newborn from the placenta.
These clamps are typically made of medical-grade plastic or sometimes silicone, and they come in a two-piece design. One piece is placed on the baby’s side of the umbilical cord, and the other on the placenta side. When clamped together, they securely close the cord, making it easy for healthcare professionals to cut the cord between the clamps with sterile scissors.
Disposable umbilical cord clamps are designed for single-use to ensure sterility and minimize the risk of infection in the newborn. They are easy to apply and remove and are a standard part of childbirth procedures in many medical facilities. Once the cord is clamped and cut, it helps ensure a safe and hygienic transition for the newborn while also allowing for efficient collection of cord blood if desired for medical purposes.
