Amniotomy

Innovative Amnicot Finger Cot for a safer and more comfortable Amniotomy

Patient comfort and safety during the performance of an amniotomy is an important consideration for medical practitioners. LTR Medical offers an innovative finger cot that is economical to purchase and easy to use.

The Go Medical Amnicotis a single use fingercot which incorporates a plastic hook attached to the fingertip of either the index or middle finger of the examining hand. With this finger cot, an amniotomy can be performed utilizing just one finger, without the need for other instruments to be inserted through the cervix.

The Go Medical Amnicot is a low cost, sterile and disposable single use device that has a number of advantages compared with other more obtuse amniotic perforation instruments. These include:

  • Less pain, discomfort and anxiety for the patient due to reduced cervical dilation
  • Greater tactile feedback and increased accuracy for the    who can more precisely apply the hook for membrane incision
  • As the user’s other hand is free to stabilize the presenting part, this eliminates the need for an assistant during the amniotomy
  • In situations where the cervix is posterior, there is no need for the patient to assume the lithotomy position in the course of the amniotomy

Easy to use

The Go Medical Amnicot is placed on the index or middle finger of the examining hand, and once the hook reaches the amniotic sac, the tip is pushed up against the sac to pierce the membranes. The hook is then pulled through the membranes to create a hole in the sac. When compared with other amniotic membrane perforators available in the market, rupturing the membrane with the Amnicot becomes an easier and safer amniotomy procedure for the obstetrician, midwife, patient and foetus/neonate.
