Pediatric Lumbar Puncture Simulator

Model #: LF01000U


Infants commonly require lumbar puncture as a diagnostic procedure used to
collect a sample of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), measure cerebrospinal fluid
pressure, or to inject medications intrathecally. The Life/form®
Pediatric 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 fetal 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 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.
