OBSTETRICAL EQUIPMENT By Sulake Fadhil Abbas

PowerPoint Presentation:

Obstetric snares, i.e. 1 m lengths, with loops , of cotton rope (clothes line), nylon cord or webbing (A, B, C) – a finer cord for snaring the mandible is essential – and traction bars (D). These items are essential and it is advisable to have at least two sets; they can be sterilised .

PowerPoint Presentation:

As an alternative to snares one may use Moore’s obstetric chains (E) with handles (F). Many veterinarians find these easier to use than rope snares. Their main advantage is that they are heavier and do not move so readily when they are repositioned during intrauterine or intravaginal manipulation.

A snare introducer (G) is also illustrated. This can be used with ropes as well as chains; the author has found that a bull ring is an effective substitute.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Obstetrical hooks include Krey–Schottler double-jointed hooks (H), Obermeyer’s anal hook (I), Harms’s sharp (J) or blunt (L) paired hooks on a fine ( farrowing ) chain (K), and Blanchard’s long, flexible cane hook (M).These are useful when performing fetotomy to enable traction to be applied to various fetal segments.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Additional instruments are Cämmerer’s torsion fork (N) with canvas cuffs (O) and Kühn’s obstetrical crutch (P). Traction may be applied using a block and tackle, or a calving aid such as an HK calf puller or Vink calving jack
