SKILLS

  • Collection of a sample of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)
  • Palpation of lumbar landmarks
  • Measurement of cerebrospinal fluid pressure
  • Intrathecal injections

CHARACTERISTICS

GENERAL:
  • The Pediatric Lumbar Puncture Simulator represents a 10-12 month old infant placed in a left lateral decubitus position with the neck and knees exed, approximating the necessary fetal position.
  • The embedded iliac crest offers exceptional realism, while the removable spine, spinal canal and skin pad make training simple and hasslefree.
  • Lumbar puncture may be performed in the L3-L4, L4-L5, or L5-S1 spaces.
  • The correct site can be located by palpating the iliac crest and spine.
  • A small “give” will be felt as the spinal needle is advanced slowly into the proper space.
  • Fluid will flow when the needle is in proper position.
  • Students will appreciate the opportunity to practice this delicate but commonly performed procedure on a simulator that is both appealing and anatomically accurate.
FEATURES:
  • Anatomically correct and palpable
  • Correct body positioning
  • Lumbar pad is easy to replace
  • Realistic resistance
  • Simulated CSF ows with successful puncture
  • The Pediatric Lumbar Puncture Simulator arrives attached to a board for stability during practice. The infant measures 48 x 18 x 15 cm and the board measures 50 x 30 cm.
