Clinical Innovations, one of the world’s leading medical device companies exclusively focused on labor and delivery and neonatal intensive care, will continue its long-running commitment to professional training at the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) Annual Clinical and Scientific Meeting at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, beginning April 27.
A long-time advocate of ACOG’s focus on education, advocacy and quality health care for women, Clinical Innovations will again be a Platinum-level event sponsor. The Salt Lake City company, which is marking its 25th anniversary, will also be exhibiting (Booth #8010) and leading a hands-on training session during the event.
“ACOG’s dedication to empowering clinicians through the latest research and best training perfectly aligns with our mission at Clinical Innovations,” said Jeff Bradford, Clinical Innovations’ vice president of global marketing. “We are focused on improving the lives of mothers and babies and are proud to continue to work with our colleagues throughout the industry to improve outcomes for patients.”
At its booth, Clinical Innovations will be sharing new product information and demonstrating its market-leading devices, including the ebb® Complete Tamponade System, traxi® Panniculus Retractor, babyLance™ safety heel stick and Kiwi® Vacuum Assisted Delivery System.
On Monday, April 30, Dr. Ross McQuivey, Clinical Innovations’ chief medical officer, will lead a three-hour hands-on training session titled, “Vacuum/Forceps: Fine Tuning Your Operative Vaginal Delivery Skills.” A program Dr. McQuivey led at last year’s conference was voted best educational course.
Conference attendees will also have the opportunity to try out Clinical Innovations’ new postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) e-simulation trainer, which tests users with a variety of PPH scenarios in a virtual operating room setting.
More than 10 million of the company’s Kiwi® Vacuum Assisted Delivery System devices have been deployed worldwide, and Clinical Innovations products are found in more than 85 percent of hospitals in the U.S. and Western Europe. Doing business in North America, South America, Africa, Asia and Europe, the company has vastly grown its global footprint in recent years and expanded to underserved markets such as China and India.
Formed in 1993 in Salt Lake City, Utah, the company today touches millions of families in more than 90 countries around the world and, through its dedication to product innovation and clinician training, is poised to accelerate its mission-driven work in the years ahead.
