Project DescriptionAfter witnessing a need for noninvasive breathing support in preterm neonatal care, first-year medical students decided to use 3D printing to create prototypes of CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) masks for babies born before the 37-week-term.  Students have 3D scanned several face shapes and we will be designing, printing, and testing masks.
