New Umbi Cord Ring
Umbi-Ring maintains continuous compressing action around the umbilical
cord, until umbilical stump falls off. Umbi-Ring is sterile,
inexpensive, easy to use, and provides more comfort for the baby.
Umbi-Ring is also made in the USA.
consists of a latex band around two plastic pieces, forming a ring. Once
the plastic pieces are separated, the band shrinks down and compresses
the umbilical cord to stop blood flow. This device is similar to a
product, no longer available, called the AGA cord ring. Unlike the AGA
cord ring, the Umbi-Ring constricts slowly which allows it to be moved
into place, momentarily and prevents possible cord laceration.
