The Cardinal Health™ Cesarean Birth Drape with Clear Anesthesia Screen is a winner of the 2017 Excellence in Surgical Products Award.
This new product was developed to address unmet patient and clinician needs in Labor & Delivery, specifically relating to cesarean sections. The cesarean section is the most common surgery in America — about 1 in 3 babies is delivered this way.1 But for many women, being told they need a C-section can be unpleasant news. Mothers who deliver vaginally are able to benefit immediately from skin-to-skin and visual contact between mother and baby. Cesarean sections, in contrast, have historically been viewed as a more “surgical” and “sterile” environment. For clinicians, this product provides AAMI 4 protection and maintains sterility. For patients, it provides a mother to participate in a cesarean birth in a meaningful way.
