In this week’s issue of “From Academia”, we share two recent publications focusing on designs and testings of open-source 3D printed medical devices. The first article presents the design and development of an open-source bag valve mask (BVM) compression system based on the structure of a RepRap 3D printer. The second article also demonstrates the design and development of an open-source powered air-purifying particulate respirator (PAPR). The open source PAPR can be fabricated with a low-cost 3D printer and widely available and inexpensive components. “From Academia” features recent, relevant, close to commercialization academic publications. Subjects include but not limited to healthcare 3D printing, 3D bioprinting, and related emerging technologies.
