You're seeing a patient with a headache, fever, and stiff neck. You know he needs an LP. You've done plenty of these procedures before but it's been four months since the last one. Is his INR of 1.3 a contraindication? Do I need to get a head CT before doing the LP? Exactly which direction is best to aim the needle? Wouldn't it be great if you could pull out your iPhone or iPod touch wherever you are and double check some of this key information for the procedure? Or even better, why not take a few minutes and watch a video of an expert proceduralist demonstrating an LP while narrating it step-by-step?
