The Advanced Epidural & Lumbar Puncture trainer is suitable for use in Clinical Skills Centres, where both early postgraduate medical and anaesthesia specialisms are taught. Trainees are at a more advanced stage of training, and great realism and the ability to practice on a variety of patients is essential for continued learning.

What are the latest features that support training in administering lumbar punctures?

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 or more subtle feedback when using the advanced Dura.
  • 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

What are the latest features that support training in epidural procedures?

  • Ligamentum flavum and interspinous ligaments allow for more realistic haptic feedback and practice of loss of resistance techniques during needle insertion.
  • 6mm epidural space between the insert and the dura enable practice threading an epidural catheter and administering fluids
  • Softer silicone on either side of the spine offers greater realism and the paramedian approach is easier to perform
  • Four epidural inserts are supplied with this model, the advanced insert has a steeper angle with a reduced epidural space, allowing practice of more difficult injections

The advanced model comes with three fat pads that can be inserted behind the Skin Pad. Used individually or in combination, they can simulate patients with different amounts of body fat, allowing trainees to practice varying difficulties of injection.

To ensure that ongoing costs remain low, this trainer comes with two LP Tissue Inserts, two standard Epidural and two advanced Epidural Inserts. This makes for a more cost-effective way to train large numbers of students. Inserts are easily interchangeable and offer a variety of training scenarios.

FAQs:

What is the difference between the standard and advanced duras supplied with this simulator?

The Standard Duras are designed to provide a more noticeable “pop” so trainees get a clear confirmation that the dura has been punctured.

The Advanced versions are more realistic and therefore suitable for use in scenarios where the dura is not intended to be punctured.

Does this model allow for different positioning of the torso?

Yes. All the lumbar puncture and epidural simulators can be positioned for midline and left lateral procedures.

Are the models able to represent different patient body types?

Yes. The Advanced trainer comes with two Advanced Epidural Inserts that feature a steeper angle to the spinous processes. As well as the skin pad, this model is supplied with Fat Pads that can be used to simulate a variety of body sizes.
