Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To assess the effects of posture (bed rest and different positions after a lumbar puncture) and administration of supplementary fluids on preventing post-dural puncture headache (PDPH) in patients who underwent dural puncture for diagnostic or therapeutic causes.
