There is a deficit of commercially available paediatric airway models for anaesthesia airway management training, particularly for infant front-of-neck access and customised airway planning. Acknowledging this, we created a three-dimensional printed prototype for an affordable, high-fidelity training device, incorporating realistic tactile feedback, reproducibility and potential for modification for specific patient pathologies. Our model, created on a Stratasys Polyjet J750™ (Rehovot, Israel) printer, is a novel and useful educational tool in paediatric airway management, and we are pleased to share access to this resource with readers. Our work adds credence to three-dimensional printing as an accessible, reproducible and pluripotent technology in clinical anaesthesia.
