A lumbar puncture, also known as a spinal tap, is a medical procedure that involves the insertion of a thin, hollow needle into the space around the spinal cord and the removal of a small amount of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. Learning correct lumbar puncture procedure is crucial for students in healthcare field because it equips them with essential diagnostic and procedural skills, enhances patient care, promotes interdisciplinary collaboration, and prepares them for diverse clinical scenarios.
