What is the purpose of a Disposable Quincke Spinal Needle?

A Disposable Quincke Spinal Needle is a needle that is designed for use in spinal taps. It is a thin, hollow needle that is inserted into the spinal canal in order to withdraw cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) for diagnostic purposes. The Quincke needle is named after its inventor, Heinrich Quincke, who developed it in 1891. The purpose of a Disposable Quincke Spinal Needle is to collect a sample of CSF in order to diagnose various conditions such as meningitis, encephalitis, or syphilis. CSF is the clear fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord and helps to protect them from injury. A small amount of CSF can be collected using a Disposable Quincke Spinal Needle and then analyzed in a laboratory for the presence of certain diseases or infections.

Who might need Disposable Quincke Spinal Needles?

A disposable Quincke spinal needle is a type of needle that is often used for spinal taps and other procedures involving the spine. These needles are usually made of stainless steel and have a sharp point. They are also often times longer than regular needles, which allows them to reach the spine more easily.

Types of Disposable Quincke Spinal Needles

There are three types of disposable Quincke spinal needles: the atraumatic needle, the bevel-tip needle, and the pencil-point needle. The atraumatic needle is designed to minimize tissue damage and pain during insertion. The bevel-tip needle has a sharp tip that helps it pierce the dura mater more easily. The pencil-point needle has a blunt tip that reduces the risk of puncturing the dura mater and causing a CSF leak.

What to do before and after inserting the needle

There are a few things you need to do before and after inserting the needle in order to ensure proper usage. First, make sure you have all the necessary supplies. You will need gloves, a sterile dressing, and an antiseptic solution. Second, clean the area where you will be inserting the needle with the antiseptic solution. Third, put on a pair of gloves. Fourth, insert the needle into the desired location. Fifth, remove the gloves and discard them properly. Sixth, apply pressure to the injection site with a sterile dressing. Seventh, monitor the injection site for any signs of infection.

Physical cleanliness includes not only adequate hand washing but it also includes such things as wearing clean clothes (i.e. lab coat), long hair being tied back, and nails being kept clean and short. Cuts/abrasions should be covered by and band-aid and/or glove. Do not work with an upper respiratory condition.If a sterile object touches a non-sterile surface, the object is no longer sterile. All needles must be properly sterilized for needle insertion. The shafts of the needle, especially longer needles, can be stabilized with a sterile cotton ball or sterile gauze. If the needle touches any object (i.e. pants, clothing, bed) or if it is dropped on the floor, the needle is considered contaminated and should not be used. All used alcohol swabs and Disposable Spinal Needle packaging must be disposed of from the clean area. Suction cups that come in contact with the skin require either sterilization or disinfection prior to each us Iodine is a popular antiseptic, and it is used in concentrations of 70%-90%. Be careful with using iodine, as it can leave permanent stains on clothing. Isopropyl Alcohol is an effective antiseptic as well. Always keep lids of alcohol bottles closed to keep the 100% concentration. When swiping the skin, the cotton ball or swab should be applied in one fluid wipe. Do not swipe the skin in a back and forth or circular motion. Alcohol should not be applied to mucous membranes or open wounds. Needle Disposal Disposable Spinal Needle must be discarded in proper sharps containers according to Public Health Regulation. Alcohol swabs or cotton balls should be discarded into the trash unless they are completely soaked in blood. Iatrogenic Complications 1. Forgotten Needle: There have been instances where a practitioner has forgotten to take a needle out. Practitioners should try to keep a needle count. This may reduce the risk of forgotten needles. A forgotten needle could cause possible harm/injury. 2. Broken Needle: Very thin needles (> 34 gauge) are more susceptible to break during insertion. A broken needle with the shaft visible above the skin may be safely removed in a sterile clamp, but if a needle has broken and it is beneath the surface of the skin, it will require a medical referral. 3. Locked or Stuck Disposable Spinal Needle Locked or a stuck needle can result from muscle spasms or if the patient moves. The result in a stuck needle because the muscle tissue around the needle spasms and locks the needle in place. When this occurs the needle should never be forcibly removed. You must stop the electro-acupunctoscope and allow the patient to rest. Gently massage the area or meridian of the stuck needle helps with the release of the needle. If the stuck needle is a result of the patient moving, the patient should assume original position then the needle can be taken out.
