Product Description

Video laryngoscopy is becoming ever more common in medical airway management. The use of video to enhance direct laryngoscopy has a range of advantages from improved views to allowing a teacher better ability to guide a student. The devices however remain very expensive with most costing thousands of pounds. This limits their availability for practice at home or for training in skills labs due to most institutions being limited in the amount they can buy. This is especially important when the use of high angled difficult airway blades is considered. I have presented a guide to making your own video laryngoscope for training from off the shelf parts at the Difficult Airway Society's annual scientific meeting and internationally at the South African Association of Anesthetists annual congress. This is an evolution of that project with 3d printing markedly simplifying construction and leading to a more professional looking product. Shapeways provides a fantastic conduit for people all over the world to print off an open source laryngoscope they can use with conventional laryngoscope blades or ones they create themselves to develop their skills and innovate new techniques the exploit the use of video to its fullest. A form 1 3d printer will allow me to explore open source airway training devices further. It's high resolution would be incredibly useful in prototyping endoscopic manipulators to allow for low cost training and exploring the use of working channels in laryngoscope blades, something that has yet to be done. Having my own 3d printer will significantly speed up the rate at which i can pursue this work. As a junior doctor rotating through hospitals conventional grants are extremely hard to come by and the award of such a fantastic machine would allow me to kick-start an area yet to be properly explored.
