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.
