Lumbar Puncture Model (Light Skin Tone)
The standard Lumbar Puncture trainer is designed for use in undergraduate and early postgraduate medical training.
In training sessions, medical students will get a true to life experience, including:
- A distinctive “pop” when puncturing the Dura (using the standard Dura) during a lumbar puncture procedure
- Measurable cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) pressure, model can present realistic pressure between 5 to 25 cmH2O
- Realistic flow of fluid from the water reservoir, increasing the volume of water will increase the flow rate allowing for quicker training
- Palpable bony landmarks for identification of target vertebrae
To ensure that ongoing costs remain low, this trainer comes with two LP Tissue Inserts, making it a cost-effective way to train large numbers of students. The Bone Spine Insert can be swapped in seconds, making the tissue easily replaceable for continued use.
Augmented Reality is now part of the Lumbar Puncture range
The new ART Mats combine real world MRI and CT scan data, with the skills of talented medical artists and digital creators, to bring the internal anatomy of our trainers to life.
Within the L&T ART app’s digital environment, you can move around your task trainer and view various overlays, including: the musculature, organs and vessels, and skeletal structure. The interface allows you to move seamlessly between the layers, as well as view their cross sections.
Students are also able to view digital procedures in the AR environment to see how the procedure is done, and its impact on the patient’s anatomy.
If you are looking to train in lumbar puncture and epidural procedures, take a look at our Advanced Epidural & Lumbar Puncture simulator.
