In the event of an accidental dural puncture, would the Episure AutoDetect inject saline into the subarachnoid space?

Because of the normally low CSF pressure, Episure AutoDetect may expel saline into the subarachnoid space in the event of an Accidental Dural Puncture (ADP). This is not unlike what can happen when an ADP occurs with a traditional LOR syringe, ie, a small amount of saline is often injected into the subarachnoid space before the dural puncture has been recognized. This small amount of saline should be of no clinical significance.
