Safety Cord Clamping/Cutting
The umbilical cord of infants is typically cut by placing two plastic clamps on the cord and then severing the cord with scissors. It is important that the cord cutting be performed with sterile instruments. Both disposable and reusable scissors are a potential source of sharps injuries to healthcare workers and others. Newer technologies exist that can take the risk of a sharps injury out of this procedure.
Color provides the caregiver the ability
to identify the infants in multiple birth scenarios. With the Joey Spray Guard
in color it is easy to identify not only the infants but also their umbilical cords after cord severance. This is important because when cord blood and cord gases are taken the caregiver has the ability to match the unique cord with the correct infant.
Multiple colors are generally used for multiple births and are available by special order in larger quantities.

Reduces the Spray
The Joey Spray Guard is ergonomically designed for one-handed use. Its double latching system ensures complete cut and closure of the device. Once fully latched, simply pressing outward on Joey’s ears easily ejects the Joey Clamp, the only piece which stays with the baby.
Ease of Use
The Joey Spray Guard clamps and cuts in one simple motion not three separate steps. The device clamps both the maternal and infant sides of the cord.
