Ultrasound Epidural & Lumbar Puncture Model (Light Skin Tone)
The Ultrasound Epidural & Lumbar Puncture trainer is designed to aid training in real-time ultrasound guided procedures.
What are the latest features that support ultrasound guided injections and lumbar punctures?
- Spinous processes and Facet joints are visible under ultrasound
- Ultrasound inserts can be used to practice marking landmarks
- Multi-purpose stand allows for practice in both standing and left lateral positions
The Limbs & Things ecolucent material has been thoroughly tested to ensure its acoustic properties offer an experience as close to human tissue as possible*. and is compatible with most commercial ultrasound machines, including the SONON handheld imaging system.
As both a Lumbar Puncture and Epidural trainer, this model can be used to teach:
- Loss of resistance technique
- Paramedian approach
- Threading an epidural catheter
- Administering fluids
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.
