A spinal needle is a medical device specifically designed for performing spinal anesthesia or lumbar punctures. It is a thin, hollow needle that is inserted into the subarachnoid space of the spinal canal to deliver anesthesia or to collect cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) for diagnostic purposes. Here’s an overview of spinal needles:
Design: Spinal needles are typically long and thin, with a sharp beveled tip that allows for easy penetration of the skin and spinal structures. The needle is attached to a hub or handle for easy manipulation and control during the procedure.
Size: Spinal needles come in various sizes, typically measured in gauge or diameter. The size of the needle is chosen based on the specific procedure and patient characteristics. Smaller gauge needles are used for diagnostic lumbar punctures, while larger gauge needles are used for spinal anesthesia.
