Dr Sanjoy Sanyal, Professor and Course Director of Neuroscience in the Caribbean, demonstrating the technique of Lumbar Puncture on an electronic digital mannikin, to Med 3 Neuroscience students on 27 July 2012 in the Physical Diagnosis lab at the Medical University of the Americas, Nevis, St.Kitts-Nevis, West Indies. The mannikin was specially ordered from the US and has a digital screen for LP Manometry recording. The procedure was performed between L3 and L4 spinous processes, using the Supracristal Plane as the landmark. The 26-gauge needle used in the demonstration was an actual LP needle procured from Alexandra Hospital in Nevis. After the demonstration, every student had a chance to get a hands-on experience in performing an LP. Camera credit goes to Shafiq Shabir Mohamed, Med 3 student, Summer 2012 batch, MUA.
