Front-of-neck airway meets front-of-neck simulation: improving cricothyroidotomy skills using a novel open-access three-dimensional model and the Airway App | SpringerLink

The authors designed a 3D artificial trachea to help guide the hands of those performing an emergency cricothyrotomy. Excerpt: “We are pleased to provide our 3D-printable cricothyrotomy file as a free-of-charge download on our website ( We encourage readers to print their own 3D model. We also encourage readers, should they perform an emergency cricothyrotomy, to share their experiences anonymously on the Airway App5 (available free of charge from the Apple App Store or Googleplay) so others can learn from their experiences.”
