Lumbar Puncture Demonstration on New Gaumard(R) LP Trainer

Dr Sanjoy Sanyal, Professor and Course Director of neuroscience created this video with the YouTube Video Editor (http://www.youtube.com/editor) It shows the procedure for Lumbar Puncture on the new, digital Gaumard(R) LP Trainer, which is an improved version over the older mannikin used in 2011. This video shows the actual process of LP on the Gaumard(R) LP Trainer, from the site of needle puncture, to the layers piereced, culminating the the distinct 'pop' sensation that characterizes entry of the Tuohy needle tip into the Lumbar Cistern. The usual site is between L3-L4 spinous process, However, later students wanted me to do the same in the L2-L3 interspinous space, which is demonstrated in the last part of this video.

This video shows the actual process of LP on the Gaumard(R) LP Trainer, from the site of needle puncture, to the layers piereced, culminating the the distinct 'pop' sensation that characterizes entry of the Tuohy needle tip into the Lumbar Cistern.

The usual site is between L3-L4 spinous process, However, later students wanted me to do the same in the L2-L3 interspinous space, which is demonstrated in the last part of this video.

Education value: It shows the exact steps of the Lumbar Puncture procedure that is supposed to be employed in real life, for medical students and residents and health professionals in training.

It is a follow up of a previous video that showed only the slides of LP procedure on the Gaumard(R) LP trainer.
