MISSISSAUGA, Ontario and CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Aug. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Theramed Corporation, Glenveigh Medical, and Body1, Inc. announce the launch of a website on critical childbirth complications at http://www.jetty.ca. In addition to providing product information for ebb and jetty, two newly developed medical devices used in advancing the practice of obstetrics for healthy moms and babies, Jetty.ca offers comprehensive resources for both patients and physicians.
ebb is a complete tamponade solution for postpartum hemorrhage. Designed by world-renowned maternal-fetal medicine specialists Michael A. Belfort and Gary A. Dildy, the ebb balloon is made of a malleable yet extremely strong material, allowing ebb to expand and conform to any uterine shape. ebb also features a vaginal balloon to control vaginal bleeding and act as an anchor to support the uterine balloon. External ports allow independent control of inflation, deflation, irrigation, and drainage.
jetty is indicated for use during episiotomy and vaginal laceration repair to temporarily prevent the postpartum discharge of fluids from the vagina in order to assist with the repair procedure. jetty provides clarity and cleanliness for a timely, effective repair, and it eliminates the need for vaginal packing with gauze or sponges.
Jetty.ca features childbirth resources for both patients and physicians, a comprehensive library of publications about episiotomy, vaginal repair, & temponade, detailed product descriptions, and educational articles on the most common childbirth complications.
