Paediatric Lumbar Puncture Simulator

Infants commonly require lumbar puncture as a diagnostic procedure used to collect a sample of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), measure cerebrospinal fluid pressure, or inject medications intrathecally.

The Lifeform Paediatric Lumbar Puncture Simulator represents a 10-12-month-old infant placed in a left lateral decubitus position with the neck and knees flexed, approximating the necessary foetal position.

The embedded iliac crest offers exceptional realism, while the removable spine, spinal canal and skin pad make training simple and hassle-free.

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 the proper position.
