Apa pendapat anda tentang ‘Lumbar puncture’ ?

A lumbar puncture is a procedure done to collect spinal fluid for the purpose of analysis to look for evidence of meningitis. There are other indications that are less common.

Dalam bahasa Melayu, lumbar puncture kerap dikenali sebagai ‘ cucuk air tulang belakang’. Ia sebenarnya suatu prosedur untuk mendapatkan air dalam selaput otak dengan mencucuk di ruang diantara dua tulang belakang untuk mendapatkan sampel cecair saraf, bagi tujuan memeriksa untuk jangkitan kuman di selaput otak. ( Jangan terkeliru dengan ujian sumsum tulang (bone marrow aspiration).

Therefore we would like to know whether if you were to be asked for consent for a lumbar puncture to be done to your child who is suspected to have meningitis, would you say yes?
