Joanna Ford and Pete Phillips

Historically, spinal needles have been used for a wide range of non-spinal procedures where regular hypodermic needles are not long enough. However, changes to the connectors on spinal needles in the near future mean that this will no longer be possible. This paper aims to explain the background and rationale for the proposed changes as well as presenting the current options for health care professionals who must find alternatives to spinal needles for non-spinal procedures.
