Blue Phantom Lumbar Puncture and Spinal Epidural training model offers clinicians the flexibility to practice and teach a wide variety of procedures including lumbar puncture, lumbar epidural, thoracic epidural, and cervical epidural diagnostic and therapeutic procedures*.
This Lumbar Puncture trainer with Lumbar Epidural is available in a variety of configurations to meet your training needs. The base model contains the lumbar puncture and lumbar epidural configuration. Users are able to add an additional spinal region to the base platform at an additional cost. These optional configurations include thoracic epidural and cervical epidural modules.
The Lumbar Puncture model with Spinal Epidural access is excellent in its realism, quality and durability offering you the ability to use ultrasound or utilize blind insertion techniques while performing lumbar puncture or epidural procedures to access the epidural or subarachnoid space.
Blue Phantom's Lumbar Puncture model is superb for needle access as well as the placement of catheters.
*The thoracic tissue module and cervical tissue module are optional and available at an additional cost.
Practise or teach a wide variety of procedures including lumbar puncture, lumbar epidural, thoracic epidural, and cervical epidural procedures
Blue Phantom’s adult spinal epidural and lumbar puncture trainer can be positioned in the upright or lateral decubitus position allowing users to accurately position the model for appropriate training scenarios. For lumbar puncture and lumbar epidural procedures, the use of external landmarks as the iliac crests can be palpated in the model to initially orient the user to the proper access points. Further palpation of the spinous processes provides additional landmarks. The accessory obese spinal insert* provides more adipose tissue disallowing the palpation of the spinal processes.
*The obese spinal insert tissue module is optional and available at an additional cost.
Our realism optimizes your training while our self-healing tissue saves you money by reducing the need for purchasing replacement parts.
The optional thoracic or cervical/upper thoracic spine insert allows users to practice thoracic or cervical epidural needle and catheter placements and shares the same superior performance and realism as the lumbar spine tissue insert. Users are able to perform epidural procedures and cerebral spinal fluid is present in the model as a way of providing the user immediate feedback as to procedural complications.
Blue Phantom tissue is extremely durable and is self-healing which saves you money by reducing the need to repeatedly purchase replacement parts. All injected fluids - local anaesthetics as well as epidural fluid infusions – are automatically expelled and cerebral spinal fluid that is removed is easily refilled using quick refill ports.
Use any ultrasound system and never have to adjust the system settings unrealistically or have problems imaging the model’s anatomy.
Our lumbar puncture and spinal epidural model is available in a variety of configurations to meet your training needs. The base model contains the lumbar puncture and lumbar epidural configuration. Users are able to add an additional spinal region to the base platform at an additional cost. These inserts include; the mid thoracic epidural module and the cervical epidural module.
*The thoracic tissue module and cervical tissue module are optional extras.
**The obese spinal insert tissue module is an optional extra.
