The KEMH method for securing umbilical catheters.

Abstract

A new method of fixation of umbilical catheters is described. This method utilizes a purse-string suture around the cord stump, which is then secured through the umbilical skin and fixed to the catheter with adhesive tape. This method avoids damage to the fragile skin, particularly of the preterm newborn, caused by the use of T piece strapping.
