Scissors, Umbilical Cord

Definition : Scissors designed to cut the umbilical cord after delivery. These scissors are typically handheld, manual instruments with two metallic (e.g., stainless steel), thin, very wide blades with large, rounded, blunt tips that slide past each other (i.e., shearing action). The blades are attached to handles with the proximal end conformed as a ring to facilitate holding and operating with the fingers; both parts are joined by a swivel pin in the center. Umbilical cord scissors are used in labor (obstetric) procedures to cut the umbilical cord after the cord is appropriately clamped.
