Skills and Features


  • Blue Phantom Lumbar Puncture and Spinal Epidural with Cervical Epidural Ultrasound Training Model offers clinicians the flexibility to practice and teach a wide variety of procedures including lumbar puncture, lumbar epidural, thoracic epidural, and cervical epidural diagnostic and therapeutic procedures
  • The Lumbar Puncture trainer with Lumbar Epidural is available in a variety of configurations:
  • The Lumbar Puncture and Spinal Epidural with Cervical Epidural access is excellent in its realism, quality and durability offering the ability to use ultrasound or utilize blind insertion techniques while performing lumbar puncture or epidural procedures to access the epidural or subarachnoid space
  • Ultrasound can be used for identification of the optimal insertion points, angle of needle insertion, and determination of the depth to the ligamentum flavum, epidural space, and spinal cistern – which is especially important when performing procedures using the obese spinal tissue insert
  • Blue Phantom Lumbar Puncture and Spinal Epidural with Cervical Epidural model is superb for needle access as well as the placement of catheters
  • Users can inject local anaesthetics, introduce the needle to the epidural space and/or subarachnoid space (perform “spinal taps”), thread catheters, infuse simulated anaesthetics, and obtain manometer measurements – all while experiencing a realistic tissue response including the pop encountered when traversing the ligamentum flavum, loss of resistance when entering the epidural space, and cerebral spinal fluid flow when the spinal cistern is accurately accessed


  • Model can be positioned in the upright or lateral decubitus position allowing users to accurately position the model for appropriate training scenarios
  • For lumbar puncture and lumbar epidural procedures the use of external landmarks as the iliac crests can be palpated in the model to initially orient the user to the proper access points
  • Palpation of the spinous processes provides additional landmarks
  • The Lumbar Puncture model contains:
    • Entire lumbar spine
    • Skin tissue
    • Ligamentum flavum
    • Eepidural space
    • Dura
    • Subarachnoid membrane and subarachnoid cistern containing cerebral spinal fluid
  • The cerebral spinal fluid pressures can be easily increased in order to simulate pathological scenarios
  • Users are able to perform epidural procedures and cerebral spinal fluid is present in the model as a way of providing the user immediate feedback as to procedural complications
  • Ultra-durable self healing tissue is extremely realistic in ultrasound imaging characteristics and feels like real human tissue and matches the acoustic characteristics of real human tissue to experience the same quality expected from imaging patients in a clinical environment
  • All injected fluids – local anaesthetics as well as epidural fluid infusions – are automatically expelled and cerebral spinal fluid that is removed is easily refilled using the EasyFill port™.
  • Blue Phantom Lumbar Puncture and Spinal Epidural with Cervical Epidural training model will perform well using any ultrasound imaging system configured with the appropriate ultrasound transducer
  • Product dimensions:
    • L 43cm W 28cm H 43cm
    • Weight 15kg
