Step-by-step development and evaluation of a 3D printed home-made low-cost pediatric tracheobronchial tree for foreign body aspiration extractions.

Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2022 Feb 7;153:111040. Epub 2022 Jan 7.

Department of Otolaryngology, Robert Debre Hospital, Assistance Publique Hôpitaux de Paris (APHP) and Faculty of Medecine, University of Paris, Paris, France.

Objectives: The management of foreign body aspirations (FBA) is dreaded by pediatric physicians due to the high risk of respiratory distress and a potential fatal outcome, favored by a lack of experience of young specialists. Furthermore, there has been an increasing requirement for low-cost simulation. The aim was to describe the step-by-step manufacturing process and to validate a low-cost, easily home-made training model of pediatric tracheo-bronchial tree (pTBT) for simulation-based training in order to teach young physicians to practice foreign body (FBA) extractions.

Monaldi Arch Chest Dis 2021 Dec 3;92(3). Epub 2021 Dec 3.

Department of Cardiothoracic Medicine, St George's University Hospital NHS Trust, London.

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a significant increase in the number of tracheostomised patients in hospitals requiring ventilatory support. These patients require highly specialist care, but overwhelmed hospital systems with stretched human resources potentially leave these patients cared for by undertrained healthcare professionals. We describe a rare complication where a routine COVID-19 swab done incorrectly via a tracheostomy tube, resulted in a snapped-off swab in the trachea. Read More

Lan Jin Ke Chang

J Healthc Eng 2021 7;2021:5678994. Epub 2021 Jul 7.

Department of Pediatrics, Hospital of Chengdu University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Chengdu 610072, Sichuan, China.

In order to provide theoretical support for clinical diagnosis, the diagnostic value of the optimized fuzzy C-means (FCM) algorithm combined with coronal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan was investigated in the diagnosis of tracheal foreign bodies in children. The anisotropic filtering was applied to optimize the traditional FCM algorithm, so as to construct a new MRI image segmentation algorithm, namely, AFFCM algorithm. Then, the traditional FCM algorithm, the FCM algorithm based on the kernel function (KFCM), and the FCM algorithm based on the spatial neighborhood information (RFCM) were introduced for comparison with the AFFCM.
