What Is a Tuohy Needle?

A Tuohy needle, which may also be referred to as an epidural needle, is a specific type of needle which is used for epidural procedures. During an epidural, this needle will be inserted into the epidural space around the spinal cord and used for the insertion of epidural catheters.

Tuohy needles were named after the American anesthesiologist, Edward Boyce Tuohy. Tuohy didn’t actually invent the needles - that honor belongs to a Seattle dentist called Ralph L. Huber - but he did help to popularize them across North America and beyond.

Today, Tuohy catheters are used in many hospitals and clinics around the world on a daily basis as a key part of epidural procedures; they’re vital for helping to provide pain-relieving medications to women who are going through labor, as well as for patients who are preparing for or recovering from a range of painful invasive operations.

How Does a Tuohy Needle Work?

As mentioned above, Tuohy needles are used for epidural procedures, in which an epidural catheter is inserted into the epidural space around the spinal cord and used to administer anesthesia into the body. The Tuohy needle is the tool that penetrates the skin and creates a passageway for the catheter to pass into. Usually, the patient will need to be seated or lying on their side to begin with. The injection site can then be cleaned and numbed before the needle is pushed into the body. The catheter follows the needle into the epidural space, and then the needle retracts back out of the body, rather than remaining inside.

Tuohy Needle Sizes 

Tuohy needles typically range from between 3 and 5” in length, on average, although other sizes are available. In terms of gauge, common measurements for these needles range from 18 gauge to 22 gauge.

Tuohy Needle Types

A Tuohy needle is a specific kind of spinal needle with a unique and distinct design and shape. However, there are various other kinds of spinal and epidural needles that are very similar to Tuohy needles, such as Hustead needles, Crawford needles, Weiss needles, and Sprotte Spezial needles.

Tuohy Needle Uses

As explained above, the main function of a Tuohy needle is to guide epidural catheters into position during epidural procedures. There are many cases in which an epidural may be required or recommended for a patient. These procedures are most commonly used to help women who are dealing with the pain of childbirth in order to ease the pain and discomfort they experience, but epidurals can also be offered to patients who are undergoing surgery.

Tuohy Needle Suppliers

BD, B Braun, Halyard Health, and Hakko are some of the top suppliers of Tuohy needles.
