dc.description.abstract The selected suction cap is placed on the baby’s head when it appears. The screw valve on the vacuum pump is closed and the pump is pumped by hand until a vacuum is created. The level of this is indicated on the vacuum gauge. The suction cap becomes attached to the baby’s head. The traction chain and handle are used to gently draw the baby from the uterus. When the baby is delivered, the screw valve is opened. Air flows in and breaks the vacuum. The baby is released. en_US
