3D prints of the week: laryngoscope covers to protect the airway during intubations

Faculty at the department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia are experimenting with designing laryngoscope blade covers.  The covers are needed to protect the airway during intubations.  The team experimented with printing both the actual covers as well as molds to cast the covers in silicone.
