Home > Specialties > Amniotomes


Definition : Surgical instruments designed for rupturing, cutting, or tearing the membrane containing the fetus (i.e., amniotic membrane or amnion) during labor. Amniotomes are manual, small handheld instruments that may consist of slender long instruments with a protected sharp point at the distal end; instruments that tear the amniotic membrane without performing a point perforation; or devices used as a finger sheath (ring-like) with an attached hook at the distal end that permit manual examination and rupture of the membrane in one operation. Amniotomes are mostly intended to rupture the amniotic membrane during labor to facilitate birthing.
