Car mechanic invents childbirth assistance device
Jill Stanek ^ | Jill Stanek

Posted on 11/15/2013 4:18:15 PM PST by Morgana

The contraption, called the Odón Device, works like this: A doctor fits a plastic bag inside a lubricated plastic sleeve and fits it around the baby’s head. The bag is then inflated, allowing it to grip on the baby head, pulling until it’s emerged from the birth canal…

The goal of his invention is two-fold: For women in underdeveloped countries who don’t have access to Cesarean sections, the device could help safely bring their babies into the world. It could also supplement forceps and vacuum extractors in cases where newer doctors are untrained to use them.

~ Journalist Elise Solé describing Argentinian car mechanic Jorge Odón’s invention to assist mothers in childbirth, Yahoo! Shine, November 14

Mechanic had probably been drinking some long necks.

To: Morgana; All

A gynecologist had become fed up with malpractice insurance and HMO
paperwork, and was burned out. Hoping to try another career where his
skillful hands would be beneficial, he decided to become a mechanic.

He went to the local technical college, signed up for evening classes,
attended diligently, and learned all he could. When the time of the
practical exam approached, the gynecologist prepared carefully for weeks
and completed the exam with tremendous skill.

When the results came back, he was surprised to find that he had
obtained a score of 150%. Fearing an error, he called the Instructor,
saying, “I don’t want to appear ungrateful for such an outstanding
result, but I wonder if there is an error in the grade?”

The instructor said, “During the exam, you took the engine apart
perfectly, which was worth 50% of the total mark. You put the engine
back together again perfectly, which is also worth 50% of the mark.”
After a pause, the instructor added, “I gave you an extra 50% because
you did it all through the muffler, which I’ve never seen done in my
entire career”.

and they aren’t worried it can be overinflated and when pulling, break the baby’s neck or separate the head from the backbone?

Details, details. This beats a back yard Cesarian, if you could figure out how to get the bag positioned in the first place.
